Simple Lifestyle Hacks That Can Lead You To A Healthy Life
Just a few changes in your lifestyle can help you live longer and could be the turning point of your health in general. A recently concluded study revealed that four bad habits of smoking, drinking, lethargy, and poor diet devoid of enough fruits and vegetables result in an early demise. Fortunately, you can do something to correct these and other unhealthy behaviors, to not just save you from an early grave, but to build your body’s immunity, tolerance, and endurance while shaping your overall self. Basically, where there’s a will there’s a way, and if you’re ready you could break your bad habits, no matter how addictive they might have become.
Here are a few counter habits you could adapt to put your body in shape and vitality.
If you want to live to 100, do yourself a favor and leave a little bit of food off your plate. Author Dan Buettner, who analyses longevity around the world, discovered that the oldest Japanese people who are well over hundred stop eating when they feel about 80% full. You cannot be wholly satisfied, so stop with the excess food you think will satisfy you, because it will not! St. Louis University researchers have confirmed that eating less helps you age slower as it aids body metabolism without stressing the organs, hence prolonging life.
Frisky is Good:
Having satisfying intercourse two to three times per week with your spouse can add as much as three years to your life. The exhilaration of the frisky session impressively burns calories a lot faster than standard exercise – sometimes it is equivalent to the calories burned in 30 minutes of running. Which would you rather do? Regular intercourse may also lower your blood pressure, enhance your sleep time to maximum restfulness, increase your immunity, and protect your heart.
Reduce TV Time:
Too much time in front of the ‘glue box’ can adversely affect your health. Tone it down. Based on a 2010 study, it was discovered that people who stayed glued to the TV for up to four or more hours a day were 46% more likely to die from any cause than people who watched less than two hours a day. This is because the body is in a relaxed state for too long and its inactivity wanes its endurance and immunity levels. Cut back a little on this and save yourself from becoming obese and risking heart failure.
Studies have shown that you’re at greater risk of heart disease without a strong network of family and friends. Loneliness can lead to depression which in turn leads to inflammation, which is as lethal as smoking. Don’t let your worries or social fears get to you: go out and connect with people around. Live in the happiness of others and you will find yours.
Drink Moderately and Responsibly:
Drinking has been so demonized these days, and for very good reason. An example of this fact is the result of a study that revealed that women who have two or more drinks per day and men who have three or more may run into damaging effects, from weight gain to relationship problems to mental issues. But in small and controlled quantities, alcohol can actually be good for your general health. Should you perhaps be battling a stomach issue, alcohol may be recommended depending on the problem at hand. Light drinking has been linked to significant heart benefits, so cut down on your drinking and turn your harmful addiction into a saving habit.
Lift Those Weights:
Daily doses of exercise can be said to be the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth. Take advantage of that and build your body’s immunity, endurance, and tolerance by exercising regularly. You don’t need to be a gym freak for this. Moderate exercises help hasten your body’s metabolism and significantly reduce risks of heart issues. Take time out to exercise daily and reap the benefit with time.
Smokers are far more likely to die young. Save your internal organs the stress and keep mouth odor away by quitting smoking. It would do you a lot of good.
