Are you ready for another installment of Lucky Seven?
This week, it’s 7 Tips to Live Longer! 😀
1. Love in Your Life
Whether it’s family, friends, your partner, or your pets – make sure that you have a generous dose of love in your world! It’s one of the best “vitamins” you can take!
It doesn’t have to be a rigorous regimen at the gym. Studies continue to suggest that walking is the ideal exercise.
It turns out that the old saying – “Laughter is the best medicine.” – has some real truth behind it! Laughing decreases stress so it boosts your immune system! In addition, cardiologists have discovered that laughter actually improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, which can help prevent heart attacks.
4. Flex Your Mental Muscles
A brain not challenged is a brain that can become stagnant. As we age, it’s important to keep ourselves engaged in new interests, hobbies, and games. Not only will life be more interesting if you avoid the “same old, same old” – but you’ll be stimulating your brain to grow and stay healthy throughout your life.
5. Never Diet; Eat Properly.
Starving yourself, yo-yo dieting, and eating without proper attention to good nutrition are all unhealthy ways to lose weight. They put undue stress on your body and wreak havoc with your metabolism. Aristotle’s belief – “everything in moderation” is the perfect mantra for maintaining a balanced diet!
6. Regular Check-Ups
Life can get hectic, but make sure that a visit to the doctor is a top priority in your schedule. What could be more important than YOU?
7. Start Now!
It’s never too late to begin healthy habits that will make your life longer and happier! 😀
