8 Habits to Have For Longer Life

Life is short and we can’t change that but we can make sure that we do our best not to make it any shorter than it should be. Here are a few habits to imbibe for a healthier and longer life.

1, Sleep
A recent study of people aged 100 years or more, found that they got 8 or more hours of sleep a night. Sleep is very important to help our bodies restore the damage done to us during the day. Try to get as much as possible, even if your life is hectic. It’ll make a lot of difference.
2, Don’t Worry, Be Happy

People who keep a positive attitude are less stressed overall and better equipped to deal with problems. They also have lower blood pressure than negative people.
A study found that optimistic people had a 50% lower risk of early death than pessimistic people. Become an optimist today. It just might save your life.

3, s*x
People who have s*x more often are happier, less stressed, and get better rest, all of which lead to a longer life. Also, studies have shown that for men, frequent ejaculation leads to lower prostate cancer risk.

4, Stop Smoking
Of course, it is better if you never start smoking in the first place, but if you are a smoker, it isn’t too late to stop! If you stop smoking, your body can still repair itself and increase your life expectancy. So stop as soon as possible and give yourself the best chance!
5, Exercise
Exercise is helpful for extending life in many ways. Exercise strengthens bones, helps maintain weight, improves heart health and releases endorphins, which are good for a happier mood, lowering stress levels, and keeping diseases away
6, Lose Weight

If you’re overweight, it’s time to shed some of those kilos. Extra weight can put you at risk for many life shortening diseases, such as heart disease and type two diabetes. To lose weight, combine a healthy diet and exercise.
7, Laugh

Laughing releases stress relieving endorphins and lowers the bad chemicals, adrenalin and cortisol. It can also cause the body to produce more of its natural defensive cells, antibodies. Have a good laugh today !

8, Stimulate Your Brain
Keeping your brain learning and active helps it to build itself as you age, instead of deteriorating. So to keep your brain active, try learning a new skill, reading often or starting a new hobby.
