If you’re interested in living a longer life to have more time to enjoy the things you love, you should consider making just a few change in your lifestyle!
From exercising to giving and being kind – you can improve your overall wellness quite simply.
Today we’re sharing 6 easy habits you can implement to live a longer life:
Stop Watching So Much TV
Okay – so you love Netflix and Hulu! Binge watching your TV shows might be detrimental to your health. A 2010 study found that people who watched four or more hours a day were 46% more likely to die from health related causes than people who watched less than two hours a day.
Don’t want to give up your TV time? Cut back a little! Each additional hour you watch increases your overall risk of dying by 11% and dying from heart disease by 18%.
Hanging out with your friends is something that can be seriously beneficial to your health. Did you know research shows that you’re at greater risk of heart disease if you don’t have a strong network of friends and family?
Yep! Loneliness can cause serious inflammation, similar to that found in high cholesterol or even smoking.
The closest thing we have to the fountain of youth is daily exercise! A study conducted in 2008 found that high-intensity exercise (like cardio) can add up to four years more to your life! Exercising is great for your heart, mind, and metabolism.
Don’t have a lot of time to fit a lot of exercise into your schedule? Try a quick, 30-minute walk each day!
According to the Cleveland Clinic studies have found that the list of health benefits associated with giving are:
- Lower blood pressure
- Increased self-esteem
- Lower stress levels
- Less depression
- Greater happiness
- Longer life
Dlyted is a game-changing new way to give to causes you care about (like Feed A Billion, the American Cancer Society, and any other cause that’s dear to your heart) without costing you an extra penny.
Eat Fruits and Veggies
You need to be having at least three servings of fruits and vegetables a day can to prevent any complications with your health. Keep in mind that fruits and veggies are nutritional powerhouses filled with fiber and vitamins. These lower your risk of heart disease by 76% and may even play a role in decreasing your risk of breast cancer!
As an added bonus, the inflammation-fighting and circulation-boosting powers of the antioxidants in fruits and veggies can banish wrinkles.
Here at Dlyted, we love to be kind. We believe kindness is contagious and small acts can create a huge wave of change!
Kindness decreases pain, stress, anxiety, depression, and blood pressure.
According to the Random Acts of Kindness organization, “The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to ‘pay it forward.’ This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people!”
It’s so easy to implement these simple habits into your daily life! We hope you take some of these strategies and start living your best and most healthiest lifestyle.
