Scientists around the world work non-stop to make discoveries to improve the quality of life for us. But, really, it’s not that complicated.
Here’s a rundown of some simple tricks that can help you live a healthier, happier, longer life:
Be curious – Asking questions, learning new things and discovering new things helps you stay engaged with the world and people around you.
Stay skinny – Research has shown the higher your body mass index, the less likely you are to live a longer, healthy life.
Keep moving – Sleeping more than nine hours a night and sitting for more than seven hours a day shortens our lifespan.
Eat natural foods – You want more fruits and vegetables, and less processed food.
Run – Runners tend to live for three years longer than non-runners.
Drink coffee – A study found that people who drink three to five cups of coffee per day have a 15% lower risk of premature death compared to those who don’t drink any coffee. (Independent)
