We all aspire to live long, happy, and meaningful lives. While we can’t control everything that determines our longevity, certain habits, and lifestyle choices can significantly increase our chances of living a longer and healthier life. Let’s explore key things we can do to improve our life expectancy and overall well-being.
WHAT MAKES YOU LIVE LONGER?
- Prioritize a BALANCED Diet: Here’s the thing, this is not a fad. It’s not about weight loss, weight gain, it’s about being intentional about making the better choice for our bodies. Whether that looks like a plant-based, whole food, or a little bit of everything … our goal is to find BALANCE. Adopting a balanced and nutritious diet is paramount for long-term health. Focus on incorporating whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats into your meals. Limit processed foods, and avoid sugary drinks, alcohol and high-fat snacks. Stay hydrated, beyond just bottled water, and practice portion control to maintain health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and different types of cancer.
- Stay Physically Active: Studies show that as we age, we move significantly less by 40-60%. That alone shortens our lifespan exponentially. We assume because we are growing older that we should move less. Retirement has become a way of life, which truly sets us up to live slower … when really we should focus on staying sharp and moving our bodies as much as possible. Regular physical activity is vital for maintaining optimal health and longevity. Engage in moderate-intensity exercises, such as brisk walking, cycling, rowing, swimming, or dancing, for at least 150 minutes per week. Or make it a true part of your lifestyle. Start a garden … adapt a hiking hobby. Take classes like pole dancing, belly dancing or zumba. Strength training exercises are equally important for building muscle mass and maintaining bone density. Find activities you enjoy to make exercise a sustainable and enjoyable part of your routine.
- Don’t Ignore Mental Health: Taking care of your mental health is just as important as physical health. Chronic stress, anxiety, and depression can affect your overall well-being and may increase the risk of developing various health conditions. Practice stress management techniques like our Qigong exercises, meditation, deep breathing exercises, or engaging in hobbies that help you relax and unwind. A direct connection to mood and mental state is Vitamin D, taking The DeTox Now’s D3 supplement helps fight many of the issues we face with mental clarity: mood, energy, and more.
- Harness the Power of Sunlight: Did you know that sunlight plays a crucial role in living a long and healthy life? Sunlight is a natural source of vitamin D, which helps regulate calcium absorption and the growth hormone, strengthens bones, and supports a healthy immune system. Sunlight also triggers the release of serotonin, a hormone that boosts mood and promotes feelings of happiness and well-being. It also enhances the production of white blood cells, which play a vital role in defending our bodies against infections and diseases. Let nature’s light nourish your body and mind for a long and radiant life!
- Get Quality Sleep: This is ESSENTIAL. Quality sleep plays a vital role in maintaining physical and mental health. Aim for seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep every night. Establish a regular sleep routine, create a comfortable sleep environment, and limit exposure to electronic devices before bedtime.
- Maintain Strong Social Connections: Cultivating and nurturing meaningful relationships with family, friends, and your community positively impacts your well-being and can contribute to a longer life. Strong social connections provide emotional support, companionship, and a sense of purpose. Make an effort to spend time with loved ones, engage in social activities, and volunteer or participate in community events that align with your passions.
While these habits are not a guarantee of longevity, they are evidence-based strategies to promote a healthier, more fulfilling life. By adopting a balanced lifestyle that includes physical activity, nutritious eating, mental well-being, social solid connections, and regular healthcare, you can increase your chances of living a longer, healthier life. Embrace these habits, make them a part of your daily routine, and enjoy the benefits they bring to your overall well-being.
