10 Steps To Living Longer



One: Exercise Regularly


A number of studies have documented the fact that engaging in sound exercise on a regular basis can have a significant impact on how long a person lives.

Two: Reduce The Total Number Of Calories You Ingest


In theory, digesting food wears down the body’s machinery and creates by-products (e.g. free radicals) that can harm the body. Accordingly, eating less food results in less damage to your body.


Documentation for such a theory comes from the considerable research involving lad animals that were fed 30% less than normal, they lived 30% longer.


Three: Stop Smoking


Evidence suggests that quitting smoking for five years can add two years to the average life span. Enough said.


Four: Keep Your Blood Pressure Down
