How To Live A Long Life

How To Live A Long Life

Nothing can predict how long you live, but you can make everyday choices that may extend your lifespan longer. The following are helpful hints that can help increase the chances of living a long and healthy life:

How To Live A Long Life
  1. Exercise regularly. Exercise is beneficial both mentally and physically. It can strengthen the body, as well as improve mood and reduce stress. Stress can actually wreak havoc on the body and shorten how long you live.

    Choose the kind of exercise that improves endurance and strengthens muscles like fast walking, jogging, aerobic exercise and swimming. Weight training can also be helpful in strengthening the body and building muscle. Even if the weights are only a few pounds each they can still be helpful in building muscle and increasing stamina.
  2. Get regular checkups. Being proactive about your health by getting regular checkups, especially if you are aware of a family history of medical conditions, can prevent health problems before they develop.
  3. Be responsible. Don’t take irresponsible chances. Wear a seatbelt, don’t speed and obey laws that are in place for your protection. If you have activities or a job that requires protective gear, always take the proper precautions.
  4. Avoid unwanted exposure. Think about things that can affect your health like environmental pollutants. Avoid excessive chemical exposure and exposure to other harmful contaminants like pesticides and asbestos.
  5. Limit alcohol intake. If you have a drink or a glass of wine at night, remember to drink only the daily recommended amount. For women, the recommendation is one glass per day and for men, the recommended amount is two glasses.

    Never drink and drive. It’s a risk to your safety and others as well. Avoid drinking alcohol and taking prescription medications. Alcohol is a natural suppressant and can have increased affects with certain medications.
  6. Don’t smoke or use nicotine products. Even if you have smoked or used nicotine for years, your body can start to heal itself when you quit. However, continuing to smoke or use nicotine can greatly increase your risk of developing multiple health conditions like:
    • Lung disease and cancer
    • Cancer of the esophagus, larynx, throat, mouth, bladder, pancreas, kidney, and cervix
    • Heart disease
    • Stroke
    • Diabetes
    • Eye disorders and cataracts
    • Respiratory distress and infections
    • Gum disease
  7. Steer clear of non-prescribed drugs. You shouldn’t take any drugs that haven’t been specifically prescribed by your physician for a medical condition. Over-the-counter medications are still okay because they do not require a prescription. The following conditions could be the result of taking drugs that aren’t prescribed...
    • Dehydration
    • Confusion
    • Memory loss
    • Psychosis
    • Seizures
    • Coma
    • Brain damage
    • Death
