Healthy Lifestyle for Longevity

The best medicine for a longer lifespan and a healthy life is to maintain your lifestyle as healthy as possible.

It’s true that giving up the more delicious junk food for plain vegetables is harder done than said but no matter how dull anything is, there’s always a way to spice it up!

Curb the stress – This definitely sounds easier said than done. But there are a lot of ways you can handle stress, and no, we are not suggesting hardcore exercise. One way to do this is to have a systematic life and plan things before you venture in to something.

Try keeping realistic goals and deadlines and always make time to spend time with family and friends. This is a good way through which you can vent the stress piling up in you.

Drink water – This really does work and keeps your body clean and healthy. And by clean, we mean on the inside, of course. Drinking more water keeps your body hydrated and also helps to clean up your digestive system. This takes care of most of the skin problems and maintains that lost shine on your skin.

Balanced Diet – Yes, you really might want to keep your hands off those junk food and fill yourself up with healthier food. Make sure you include rice and food with omega fatty acids that are usually present in sea food, fruits and a lot of vegetables. Stay away from synthetic flavors and colorants, fried dishes and sugar.

Alcohol and smoking – This goes without saying that smoking and alcohol really cuts your lifespan drastically. Even though you can’t stop it entirely, try to keep them at a moderate level so it won’t effect your life too much.

Exercise – No matter how much of a pain it sounds like, it comes with sweetest rewards. You don’t have to start with rigorous exercises. You can always start with natural exercise like using stairs instead of elevator, walking to the super market etc. Once you are used to this, you can start with small regular exercises later.

Expose yourself to morning sunlight – The morning sunlight is rich in vitamin D that is absorbed by your body. Vitamin D is not naturally produced in your body. Hence you have to take it externally. And what better way to do that than exposing yourself to some warm morning sunshine?
