If there’s one thing you can be certain of, it’s we all have a fixed time on this planet. Far too many people take their day-to-day living for granted. They’re either…
- dwelling on the past,
- stressing about the future, or
- not maximizing their health so they can make the most of each day.
Before they know it years have passed, and they wonder where the time went. Striving to boost your longevity so you can get as much as possible out of this life while also feeling your best is a must. Don’t look back feeling disappointed of what you’ve made of your life.
Here are four great tips to help you improve your longevity…
1. Stress Less. If there’s one thing that can take people too soon, stress would be it. Named the “silent killer,” stress is behind several of the common diseases plaguing many people: heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, stroke, depression, all can be linked back to high-stress levels.
Start using ongoing stress management techniques to control this. It will do you well both now and into the long-term future.
2. Sleep More. Moving along, it’s also vital you spend more time focusing on sleep. While it may seem odd to sleep more when sleep takes away from your time living, by adding more sleep hours to your day, you will boost how you feel during your waking hours.
Healthy sleep can help you make more of your day. Not to mention, sleep deprivation and weight gain are closely connected, and weight gain is at the heart of many diseases as well.
3. Up Your Antioxidant Quota. When it comes to nutrition, you simply can’t get enough antioxidants. Start focusing on eating more fresh fruits and vegetables each and every day. Antioxidants will help combat free radical damage which in time would lead to ongoing disease.
Striving to take in 5 to 10 antioxidants a day should be a mandatory requirement of your eating plan.
4. Find Joy In Every Day. Finally, find some joy in every day. By making the effort to look at the positive side of things, you can change your mind-frame so you get more from everything you do.
When you think negative thoughts, negative events tend to be drawn to you. Likewise when you think positive thoughts. While this may not help you live longer, it will help you make more of the time you do have.
Keep these quick tips in mind. Take longevity and making the most of your life seriously. You can only live each day once, so make the most of it!
Type 2 diabetes is no longer a condition you must just live with. It need not slowly and inevitably get worse. Now is the time to take control of the disease… and take back your life.
