live longer

heres how to do it
to live a longer life
from an article i read in webmd

protect your telomeres
your dna shrinks as you get older
like everything else
telomeres are on the end of your dna
lengthen them by healthy living

play to win
plan well think things through do the right thing

make friends
socialization as you age is important

chose the right friends
those with bad habits can have a bad influence

dont smoke

sleep restfully

eat a mediteranean diet

get married
youll live longer

lose weight
obese folks get more diseases and die younger
being miserable as they go along

keep moving
do exercise either structured or unstructured exercise
like i do here at the country n

drink in moderation

get spiritual
those in church groups
like the long lived 7th day adventists in loma linda
live longer

let those grudges go
relieves a lot of stress

wear safety gear
like seat belts bike helmets
folks that asphalt does bad things to your head

make sleep your priority
folks i got that one down good
sleep is when the brain repairs itself

manage stress
easy to say hard to do
do yoga go for a walk sit and enjoy the moment somewhere
relaxing for you

maintain a sense of purpose
men who dont do this die more from heart attack and stroke

so i looked at all of these
these are why i feel like my health has improved so much
over the last 5 years

you should try it

the worst it can do is make you live longer
