Want to live until you’re 100? Researchers have found 4 key things you can do to live until there or even longer. Unfortunately, most people won’t even look at these steps to do it! But if you’re one of those people who are ready to stop being lazy and putting yourself in an early grave due to poor life choices, you have come to the right place.
Here are 4 keys to living until you’re 100, and they might actually help you do so:
#1 – Start Being Active Daily
People who live to be really old aren’t sitting around doing nothing, as much as it pains me to tell you this. You most likely know that being inactive really wreaks havoc on your body. So much so that your risks of developing heart disease, having a heart attack, or having a stroke increase exponentially when you’re not moving around that often.
So sitting on the couch all the time has to stop. People who live well into their 90s are very mobile. Their way of living is conducive to living into old age, as they have to walk to get to where they’re going, and have no other choices but to eat healthy food.
Mimic that way of living.
#2 – Eat Healthy Foods
People who live until they’re 100 eat a lot of healthy foods, and do it daily. You should skip the awful fried foods, and go right for the fruits and vegetables any time you can get.
Not only do these foods taste better, but they’re able to stave off bowel and heart diseases, as well as give your body the fuel it needs to succeed. Your organs depend on it!
#3 – Sleep More
When you’re not sleeping that much, somewhere in the 5-6 hours range, you’re not giving your body enough sleep to repair itself from the day before. And this snowballs the longer you go without adequate sleep.
The sad reality is that people are so used to not getting enough sleep that they don’t even notice how awful they feel. By sleeping 8 hours, you’re going to feel amazing.
#4 – Reduce Your Stress
Start doing yoga, go to relaxation courses, or just remove what’s causing your stress. Whatever you can do to live a stress-free life, do it! People who live until they’re 100 often have few stressers, and this is one of the main reasons why they live so long.
