HIGHLIGHTS

  • A healthy diet, which was calculated and rated based on the reported intake of healthy foods like vegetables, fruits.
  • Healthy physical activity: This is the second most important. Physical activity causes many chemical reactions in both our brain and in our body.
  • Smoking: Smoking should not be a part of your lifestyle at all. Any amount of smoking is bad for your health.

There are five areas that are associated with a healthy lifestyle. Some of these are:

1.   A healthy diet, which was calculated and rated based on the reported intake of healthy foods like vegetables, fruits.

2.   Healthy physical activity: This is the second most important. Physical activity causes many chemical reactions in both our brain and in our bodies. 

3.   Healthy BMI:  Between 18.5 and 24.9. 

4.   Smoking: Smoking should not be a part of your lifestyle at all. Any amount of smoking is bad for your health. 

Healthy habits make a big difference. According to this analysis, people who met criteria for all five habits enjoyed significantly, impressively longer lives than those who had none: 14 years for women and 12 years for men (if they had these habits at age 50). People who had none of these habits were far more likely to die prematurely from cancer or cardiovascular disease.

The life expectancy of a human being can be calculated by just how much of the healthy habits he has. Just one healthy habit (and it didn’t matter which one) … just one… extended life expectancy by two years in men and women.

A healthy lifestyle is one of the most important things in the world. There are ways in which a healthy lifestyle can be developed. As with any habit, it takes a lot of time to build a healthy habit. A healthy habit is also the starting point of living a healthy life. Without a healthy lifestyle or habit, it may look like a healthy lifestyle is out of bounds for a person. But with slow and steady changes one can accomplish what one has sought out for.

This is huge. And, it confirms prior similar research — a lot of prior similar research. A 2017 study using data from the Health and Retirement Study found that people 50 and older who were normal weight, had never smoked, and drank alcohol in moderation lived on average seven years longer. A 2012 mega-analysis of 15 international studies that included over 500,000 participants found that over half of premature deaths were due to unhealthy lifestyle factors such as poor diet, inactivity, obesity, excessive alcohol intake, and smoking. And the list of supporting research goes on.
