Or is it not really a secret?
What are the secrets to a healthy long life? Is there a magic pill? Or is it living an overly cautious life by killing ourselves with crazy amounts of exercise and counting every calorie that goes into our mouth?
Well, here are my thoughts.
1) Diet :- Everything in balance. I do not believe in low-fat, non-fat, skimmed, sugar-free and guilt-free products. Wholesome, nutritious, full fat foods are necessary for you and your brain!
Our brain craves fat rich foods to prevent disorders such as ADHD, Dementia, and Alzheimers.
Increasing amounts of fats in our diets can protect our most valuable organs. So please drop the low-fat and skimmed stuff. It’s going to leave you “hangry” most times!!
2) Activity :- What is your lifestyle like? Do you have an active lifestyle?
It is so important to find an activity that you enjoy. It increases the quality of your life and lifespan. What motivates you? Golf, yoga, running, tennis? It can be anything!
You do not have to limit activity to working out to sports and volunteering. The act of giving back as well has been proven to lower the likelihood of dying early.
3) Social Life :- This is something I can vouch for! A good, healthy and positive social life definitely is important for a quality life. Having support from people you can count on, like family, friends, partners or bffs also reduces loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress.
4) Attitude :- A positive attitude in life does help with longevity. You have to be grateful and appreciate all you have in your life. Appreciate the good people you are surrounded with and count your blessings, even the minor ones. Make the most of your everyday and try and not let the small stuff get to you.
I came across this reading by Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.
He had said “Just loosen up your life a little bit, laugh a little more, involve yourself with people around you. Do things that you think is not so important. Do simple things . Very important to do simple things because the very important things we do in life will become dead serious. Don’t be dead now. A time will come, now it’s time to be alive. Your life is just play “
It simply means, don’t take life so seriously and live your life to the fullest!
