How to Extend Your Life Expectancy

Posted

It’s not necessarily something that you always want to think about, but if you are keen to try and live as long as possible, then there are many approaches you can take in order to make that happen. As it happens, more and more people are working towards extending their life expectancy, and doing that is valuable for a number of reasons. Of course, there is the fact that it will lead to a longer life, but it will also have other knock-on effects, such as generally causing you to be healthier and happier. Let’s look at some of the best ways to extend your life expectancy.

Fast

One of the main things that you might want to try in order to live longer is to fast. Choosing periods of time when you do not consume any calories, and doing this regularly, is known to lead to many significant health benefits, as well as helping to promote the human growth hormone. All that means that you are actually going to live a lot longer and with greater health, and you will find that this leads to a far greater ability to live well in general. Start with intermittent fasting and see how you go from there.

Look after your hearing

You might not have assumed that there was much of a correlation between your hearing health and your lifespan, but actually there is quite a strong one. In general, hearing loss is associated with quite a few other conditions which impact upon not only length of life, but quality of life too. Therefore, if you can take care of your hearing, you are going to find that it helps towards actually extending your life expectancy considerably. Make sure you avoid the impacts of hearing loss by avoiding loud sounds and having your ears checked from time to time.

Avoid stress

A lot of people feel that stress is a necessary part of life, but in truth it is possible to live in such a way that you are keeping your stress levels to a minimum. There are many benefits to doing that, with one of the main ones being that you will be able to expect a much longer lifespan. You can avoid stress by meditating, keeping your work-life balance in check, and avoiding substances which make stress worse, to name but a few things.

Quit smoking

Of course, one of the habits that can really affect your life expectancy considerably is smoking. If you want to live longer, you will certainly need to think about trying to keep your smoking to a minimum. Ideally you will avoid smoking altogether, but even if that is not possible you might want to consider just trying to cut down a little. Every cigarette you manage not to smoke will help to extend your life, so thought of that way you can see why this would be powerful.

With those in place, you are going to be able to expect a much longer life.
