From The Huffington Post, here are 5 habits that science proves will help us live longer.
1. Step away from the remote.
Face it. You know the more time you spend on Netflix, binging on marathon TV sessions, the less likely you are to pull yourself away and make time for the gym. But here’s some scary news. An Australian study of 8,800 adults with no history of heart disease found a correlation between the amount of time spent sitting in front of the TV and your risk of premature death and heart disease. Participants who watched four or more hours of TV per day were nearly 50 percent more likely to die from any cause than those who limited their TV consumption to under two hours.
Still not convinced? Researchers calculated that each additional hour of TV watched means you’re 11 percent more likely to die from any cause. No TV show is worth that risk. Not even “Dancing With The Stars.”
2. Eat a handful of nuts every day.
In recent years we’ve heard all about the benefits of omega-3s and their heart-health goodness. But if you can’t stomach those fishy-smelling capsules, try adding nuts to your daily diet.
In a 30-year study, Harvard researchers found that people who ate nuts every day were 20 percent less likely to die from any cause during the study, than those who didn’t. The more frequently people ate nuts, the lower their risk of death was.
Experts point to nuts’ cholesterol-balancing qualities as the reason they’re so darn good for your life expectancy. So try adding some walnuts to your morning oatmeal or chopped almonds to your salad for a longer, healthier life.
