LOVE, PLAY AND LIVE LONGER.
O' ye amigos lend me your ears, I come to bury faith, to preach life. Have you ever heard about the natural selection, this is the proven process that eliminates politics and religion, in it's right intuitions to urge the human race live or survive longer. Sorry about dying ever too soon or about to die ever too soon, for the near future will present death upon decision making, the subject; who turns out to be the victim (you) will choose life or death. Man will bravely opt out of life not because of a condition or situation.
There is a certain class of people who prefer to say that their fathers came down in the world through their own follies than to boast that they rose in the world through their own industry and talents. It is the same shabby-genteel sentiment, the same vanity of birth which makes men prefer to believe that they are degenerated angels rather than elevated apes.
Long life is simply supported by the Natural Selection, wherefore the gradual process by which biological traits become either more or less common in a population as a function of the effect of inherited traits on the differential reproductive success of organisms interacting with their environment. It is in turn reassured by the change in the inherited characteristics of biological populations over successive generations. Evolutionary processes give rise to diversity at every level of biological organisation, including species, individual organisms and molecules such as DNA and proteins.
We are linked by blood, and blood is memory without language.
As a non God gifted nor politically organised faith, it is assumed as the fundamental, but due to it's transitive progression, not all of us will live to choose living longer than our conditions permit. Could you believe that one day research could beat cancer? That research will greedily process the tonic that slows down ageing? That research will cure all diseases with a single jab? That our memories will be recharged to beat dementia and amnesia? So be it because I do believe. So far so good the future apprehends, but for now, we can simply assist ourselves to live longer?
The precise form of an individual's activity is determined, of course, by the equipment with which he came into the world. In other words, it is determined by his heredity.
Protect Your DNA.
It is believed as we age, the ends of our chromosomes, called telomeres, become shorter. This makes people more vulnerable to disease. You might think there's nothing you can do, but new research suggests otherwise. In a pilot study, lifestyle changes boosted an enzyme that increases telomere length. Other studies also find diet and exercise can protect telomeres. So healthy habits may slow aging at the cellular level.
The person who has nothing to brag about but their ancestors is like a potato; the best part of them is underground, six feet else scattered.
Choose Friends Wisely.
Your friends’ habits rub off on you, so look for companions with healthy lifestyles. Studies indicate obesity is socially “contagious," your chance of becoming obese increases by 57% if you have a friend who becomes obese. Smoking is another habit that spreads through social ties, but the good news is that quitting is also contagious.
When someone tells me there is only one way to do things, it always lights a fire under my butt. My instant reaction is, "I'm going to prove you wrong!"
Wanna Quit Smoking.
While it's no secret that giving up cigarettes can lengthen your days, the amount of extra time may surprise you. According to a 50-year British study, quitting at age 30 could increase your lifespan by an entire decade. Kicking the habit at age 40, 50, or 60 boosts life expectancy by 9, 6, or 3 years, respectively.
The heights charm us, but the steps do not; with the mountain in our view we love to walk the plains.
Follow a Mediterranean Diet.
The Mediterranean diet is high in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, olive oil, and fish. An analysis of 50 studies involving more than half a million people shows the impressive benefits of this diet. The findings show it significantly lowers the risk of metabolic syndrome, a combination of obesity, elevated blood sugar, increased blood pressure, and other factors that raise the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.
Several studies show that married people tend to outlive their single counterparts. Many researchers attribute the difference to the social and economic support marriage provides. While a current marriage offers the greatest benefit, people who are divorced or widowed have lower mortality rates than those who have never been married.
Remember if you marry for beauty, thou bindest thyself all thy life for that which perchance, will neither last nor please thee one year: and when thou hast it, it will be to thee of no price at all.
No keep fit. If you're overweight, slimming down can protect against diabetes, heart disease, and other life shortening conditions. Belly fat appears to be particularly harmful, so focus on deflating that spare tire. A 5-year study of Hispanics and African-Americans suggests eating more fiber and exercising regularly are effective ways to reduce belly fat. The evidence is overwhelming, people who exercise live longer on average than those who don't. According to dozens of studies, regular physical activity reduces the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some forms of cancer, and depression. Exercise may even help you stay mentally sharp into old age. Ten minute spurts of activity are fine, as long as they add up to about 2.5 hours of moderate exercise per week.
God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.
Drink in Moderation.
Heart disease is less common in moderate drinkers than in people who don't drink at all. But keep in mind that too much alcohol pads the belly, boosts blood pressure, and can cause a host of other health problems. The American Heart Association recommends that if you drink alcohol, the limit should be one drink a day for women and one or two for men. But if you don't drink, don't start. There are many other ways of protecting your heart.
Some people change their ways when they see the light, others when they feel the heat.
Research suggests people who attend religious services tend to live longer than people who never attend. In a 12-year study of people over age 65, those who attended services more than once a week had higher levels of a key immune system protein than their peers who attended no services. They were also significantly less likely to die during the study period. The strong social network that develops among people who worship together may contribute to their overall health.
To live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often.
Contrary to the good die young, letting go of grudges has surprising physical health benefits. Chronic anger is linked to decreased lung function, heart disease, stroke, and other ailments. Forgiveness will reduce anxiety, lower blood pressure, and help you to breathe more easily. These benefits tend to increase as you get older.
Since we cannot get what we like, let us like what we can get.
Make Sleep a Priority.
Getting enough good quality sleep can lower the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and mood disorders. Sufficient sleep will also help you recover from illness faster. Burning the midnight oil, on the other hand, carries serious health risks. Sleeping less than 5 hours per night boosts the risk of premature death, so make sleep a priority.
When we cannot find contentment in ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.
Lifestyle changes including stress management not only help prevent heart disease, but may actually reverse it. Although avoiding stress is not a viable option for most people, there are effective ways to control it. Try yoga, meditation, or deep breathing. Even a few minutes a day can make a difference.
Don't take the bull by the horns, take him by the tail; then you can let go when you want to.
Maintain a Sense of Purpose.
Finding hobbies and activities that have meaning for you may contribute to a long life. Japanese researchers found men with a strong sense of purpose were less likely to die from stroke, heart disease, or other causes over a 13-year period compared to those with a low sense of purpose. Another study at Rush University Medical Center indicates that having a greater sense of purpose is linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.
Improved heart health. Just like any physical activity, healthy sex is good for your heart. Several studies have found that your risk of dying from a heart disease event such as stroke or heart attack goes down as the frequency of your good orgasms increase over time. And for those that worry that the exertion involved in sex is a threat to the heart, analyses show that the most sexually intense moments place about the same demand on your heart as walking 4 to 6 miles an hour. Of course, it helps your heart and your sex life overall to stay in shape and live longer.
The future is not a result of choices among alternative paths offered by the present, but a place that is created, created first in the mind and will, created next in activity. The future is not some place we are going to, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination.
