Many people wonder if there is a recipe for live to be 100 years old, and staying healthy. The answer is yes.
Diet is important. The healthier you eat, the longer you are likely to live. Science has revealed that certain regions of the world have a longer life expectancy thanks to the local diet followed by their inhabitants for as long as they can remember. But in addition to food, there is 3 essential things to do to live to 100. This is what the neurosurgeon and correspondent of CNN, Sanjay Gupta, who shared with the American channel the habits to follow from the age of 50 if you want to live better and as long as possible. There is no magic formula to get there: if you want to reach 100, you will have to work on your body and mind and the sooner you start, the better.
The happiness of some, the happiness of others
First of all, according to Sanjay Gupta, from the age of 50 it is necessary tocarry out regular and diligent medical checks. Monitoring and prevention are essential to take care of your health. And that we don’t hear you invoking lateness or other forgetting of appointments.
The second important thing is theexercise. The most recommended are bodybuilding exercises to maintain your muscles, because from the age of 30, muscle mass decreases. Having good muscles will help you move better as you age. And you shouldn’t neglect exercises for your bones and joints either. If you can train outdoors, in the countryside, away from the city, even better. The neurosurgeon asserts that the fact to live surrounded by nature is also the key to living to be 100.
Finally, friends are essential. Personal relationships are key to living longer, as confirmed by several studies, including one conducted by Harvard, which followed a group of people throughout their lives and found that those who had good relationships with their partner, friends and family lived longer and healthier lives. So play sports with your loved ones, meet them for a drink, have dinner together every week… It doesn’t matter what you do, as long as you have a good relationship with them. Find the time to do it not only because they deserve it but also because they will help you live to be 100 years old happily.
