Adopting healthy habits after 70 makes you live longer

The sooner you adopt a healthy lifestyle, with balanced diet and exercise practice, the longer your life expectancy. The good news, however, is that even those who have left to think about it at an advanced age can take advantage of the benefits of change to live better and better. This is what a new study published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) says from a survey was developed by specialists of the Karolinska Institutet , of the Stockholm University and the Stockholm Gerontology Research Center in Sweden. To reach this conclusion, 1,810 people aged at least 75 years were evaluated. They were followed up for 18 years and, over that time, researchers looked at behavior, leisure activities, lifestyle, professions, and social relationships. At the end of the study, almost 92% of the participants died, and half survived to more than 90 years.

The results showed that half of the elderly smokers died one year earlier than nonsmokers. He also pointed out that among all leisure activities, exercising was the most useful when it came to longevity. Older people who walked, swam, or did gymnastics had a survival of about two more years compared to the others.

But the very secret is in combining a healthy lifestyle, participation in at least one leisure and life activity social movement, the tripod yields up to 5.4 years of life when compared to the routine of healthy habits, but without leisure activity and little social interaction.

Longevity

A study published in the

Journal of International Medicine showed that lifestyle habits have a greater influence on longevity than genetics itself. Given this information, we have separated some fundamental points to increase their life time and live with more quality. 1.

According to a study published in the Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association , exercising regularly increases the life expectancy of even overweight people. In addition, progressively increasing the workout load reduced the risk of heart disease and stroke by 19% and the risk of dying from other diseases by 15%. 2.

Sleeping also plays an important role in longevity. A survey conducted by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine showed that 46% of participants reporting poor health did not sleep well either. 3. Adopting a positive attitude toward life is also a factor important to boost life expectancy, according to a study conducted by researchers at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine

. Most of the research volunteers around the age of 100 were outgoing and viewed the world from an optimistic and carefree perspective. 4. Having a balanced diet is also a sign of good health. A study by the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden found that consuming vegetables and fish in large quantities and limiting the intake of animal products may favor longevity.
