Who doesn’t want a long, healthier life where we can do whatever we want without a set of rules? And who doesn’t want a long life where everything is better? Who wants this ride called life to end, however impossible it becomes to get through?
Everyone wants a better life where longevity is assured. Imagine living your life on your terms with nothing dragging you down and no one breathing down your neck. Just close your eyes, imagine spending your life at your happy place till eternity. Imagine things turning way better than you expected them to be.
Eternity might seem like a far-fetched idea, but all the other things might be possible to attain! Here are just some secrets that can help you extend your life expectancy.
A positive approach to healthier life goes a long way. Studies show that people who have a positive attitude about aging are less likely to contract a certain disease (even when their genetics dictate otherwise) than people who have a negative approach. Fear, uncertainty, and pessimism are some traits that end up weakening your heart and shortening your life expectancy. Always be wise and think positively!
Life can seem like a bit of an overwhelming journey at times. Take a break. Give yourself some time to recuperate and bounce back. Try to worry a bit less about your to-do lists and cut yourself some slack. Hibernate to a more peaceful environment, take a vacation, explore nature, and spend time in things that make you happy. Responsibilities tend to take a toll on your mental health. Unwind yourself!
Eat Healthily (and a little less)
What you eat as part of your daily diet has a huge role to play in shaping your life. It pumps you and nourishes you like nothing else. As such, you need to think about what you’re putting into your stomach. Partaking in a diet of unhealthy food has repercussions that affect your life expectancy. Studies show that people who eat healthily and eat less (about 80% of your appetite) live longer, healthier, and happier than people who stuff themselves.
Physical exercises are beneficial for your health. They help regulate your system and refreshingly reboot you. We are not talking about hard-core weight lifting, but a walk or a jog may do the trick. You can also meditate and incorporate breathing exercises in your life to get through. They help you calm your mind and make your day a little better.
Surround yourself with your loved ones
Your heart functions well when you are happy. You are happy when you are surrounded by people who love you, motivate you, and contribute to your success. Healthy discussions and a few laughs with a person you love make you want to live a little more.
There’s no guarantee you can live forever. But you can certainly make your life better while you have the time. Death is imminent, but live a little while you can.
