4 Things to Live Longer and Look Younger

A recent study looking at the lifestyle habits of 5000 British adults found that those that smoked, drank excessive alcohol, more than 3 drinks for men and 2 a day for woman, did less than 2 hours of physical activity a week and less then 3 servings of fruits and vegetables a day had a shorter life span. They also looked 12 years older than those who made healthier choices.

So what can we do?

  1. Get help to stop smoking if you smoke
  2. Enjoy Alcohol in Moderation
  3. Walk or do fun activities daily
  4. Eat more fruits and vegetables, for example Orange juice for breakfast an apple mid morning, salad for lunch, broccoli and peas for supper and berries and cereal before bed see its not that hard

  1. Good, simple, and effective message. Eating fruits and vegetable doesn't have to be complicated!

  2. Those 5 things are incredibly easy to do for such great health benefits. Great post!

  3. Sensible advice presented simply! GREG

  4. It's always helpful to have a gentle reminder to incorporate more physical activity and nutritious fruits and veggies.

  5. I do those 4 things already, so I think I'm on the right track. :)

  6. I don't do #1. Maybe secondhand smoking while walking on the streets of NYC..Do #2 in moderation. Overdo #3 and #4. So I don't think I will kick the bucket anytime soon..not that I want to.If I did, it would probably because of over stress.

  7. Good health is up to each to maintain, Thanks for the reminder.

  12. Yep this is so true. But I would add one more to the list, drink plenty of water!

  13. Thanks for the little nudge to get us back on track. Can you come over and cook for me? Ok, maybe I'll get a juicer, that would make it easy and fresh...hehe! No, I'm lucky my family likes to eat healthy and we are active, and never have smoked. My daughter is appalled by it. (yay!)

  14. Oops, I forgot to say I think we should add one more.

    #5 wear sunscreen!
