Here are 12 ways to extend your life expectancy. 

Some of the many secrets to living a long and healthy life include the following 12 guidelines: 

1. Learn how to dance.

To live longer, you need to train your body to move to music. Dancing creates mental challenges that lower the probability of developing dementia. Potentially useful for preserving one's capacity for stable footing, too.

If you want to live longer, all you have to do is go outside. The sun's rays can damage your skin if you spend too much time outside. The skin's cells will start producing vitamin D in response to the sun's rays. Getting some sun on your hands and face every day for 15 minutes is usually enough to keep vitamin D levels stable. But the chance of developing skin cancer rises with extended and/or frequent exposure to sunlight. 

3. Be an optimist in life.

American researchers have studied the surroundings and lifestyles of over 70,000 people and found that if we maintain a hopeful outlook, we can expect to live to at least breathe 85 candles. The most optimistic persons would profit from 11-15 percent additional life expectancy compared to the less optimistic. 


4. Stay away from the sugary beverages. 

A shorter lifespan is a direct result of drinking soda, fruit juice, or sweet flavored tea. Two cans a day is associated with a 21% increase in premature death risk. 

5. Learn to meditate. 

Sleep issues are common among the elderly, and they only get worse with time. Mindfulness meditation helps, and it also slows down the aging of the brain. 


6. Avoid highly processed foods. 

There are at least 5 artificial ingredients (fats, sugars, and additives) in these foods and drinks, none of which would be used in a home kitchen. They decrease the quality of the food we eat and raise the risk of developing chronic diseases and cancer. 

7. Start a Mediterranean or vegetarian diet early in life.

To begin a diet after the age of fifty can be a laborious process. However, let's not slack off and instead work toward permanent changes in our diets. There is substantial evidence that adhering to a Mediterranean diet will help you live longer and healthier lives, particularly by lowering your chance of developing neurological illnesses and cancer. 


8. Make use of some turmeric in your cooking. 

Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects of curcumin, turmeric's main element, lead to enhanced cognitive performance. 

9. Eat nuts.

Consume lots of nuts as healthy snack options for a longer lifespan. Almonds, walnuts, groundnuts, cashew nuts, tiger nuts and brazil nuts are all good choices because the omega-3s they contain help to delay the aging of the brain. Moreover, they encourage the development of a microbiome rich in diversity, a feature crucial to good health. 

10. Cut back on your red meat intake. 

Consume less than 500 grams of red meat every week to reduce your risk of cancer, especially in particular colorectal cancer. Also, because red meat is heavy in saturated fat, eating it frequently might lead to weight gain. 

11. Exercise a lot.

To live up to 100 and become a centunerian, you have to Make physical activity part of your daily routine. Your life expectancy can be increased via regular exercise. Vigorous exercisers, those who put in about three hours each week, have cells and DNA that are nine years younger than those who don't. Investing three hours every week is equivalent to slightly more than 30 minutes per day. 


12. Get Regular Checkups and Screenings for Your Health. 

Not exactly what you'd call a "fun way to live longer," getting regular medical checkups and screenings is one of the best methods to ensure a long and healthy life span. Medical screens and tests can help diagnose and treat diseases at an earlier, more treatable stage, and increase the number of years a person can live with an existing health condition.
