It is perhaps only a slight exaggeration to say that we all would like to live longer, and live in the best health possible. Hopefully we can do this without too much effort, spending our time enjoying life rather than trying to maintain our health. Studies of various cultures and individuals who have lived a long and healthy life have given some insights into the situation.
Purpose – Having a goal, and presumably some success with it, or a spiritual meaning for your life, make a big difference. Those with meaningful values and goal lived an average of seven years longer.
Stress management – Hardly surprising that this is important. Anything that kept stress down was helpful, from socializing to massage to prayer.
Keep Moving – People who exercised most days, who kept active, lived longer and suffered less stress. This could be a simple as walking and gardening.
Moderate diet. – This is a mixture of healthy diet and not overeating. Certainly natural (unprocessed) foods were best, with healthy probiotics and a lot of vegetables, were better than junk food. And not overeating, eating till you are 80% full, made a huge difference. Our body functions better at a moderate weight and minimal strain.
Moderate Alcohol – Maybe this was helping with stress, but a little alcohol, 1 or 2 glasses per day, seems beneficial.
Social Community – social connections and religious services make for a healthier, happier life.
Family – People who lived a long life remained close to their immediate and extended family.
