Longer Life May Be in Your Future

By Tom Herrin

Have you ever wondered if there was some way in which you could extend our life?  We all likely ponder those kinds of things but often feel that the idea may be far out of reach.  Many times, such things are beyond our control, but in the case of living longer, we may actually have the ability to do more than we may realize.  We may assume that our fate is something that we have no control over.  With so many things available to us, it is within our reach to take steps now that may help to contribute to our possibility of living longer.  In order to make a plan, we must educate ourselves and have a willingness to take action.

Dump Some Stress

No matter who it is, everyone experiences stress of some kind.  It may be finances or family or job.  It could be about anything, but if we worry about it, it can add stress to our lives.  Eliminating or minimizing stress can help us to feel that a tremendous burden has been lifted.  Stress can be a major contributor to poor health.  It can play a part in increased blood pressure and lower resistance to some diseases among other things.  We must address stress with definite actions.  Exercise is known to be a good way to relieve it for many.  Some of the meditation programs are always pretty successful.  

Eat Well

There are times in which it may seem that eating good foods is too costly.  If we educate ourselves, we can eat good foods without a lot of extra expense.  We must not rely on fast foods for all of our nutrition.  If we must, most of them offer some better choices.  When we are home, there are plenty of things to choose from.  Making certain to eat more vegetables, fruits, and lean protein can put us on the road to better health.  It is always important to drink lots of water as well.  Once you begin eating better foods, you will likely find that they are actually pretty satisfying.

Keep Goals in Mind

We are able to do a lot of things if we will simply make a commitment.  Living longer should be a goal accomplished by living a healthier lifestyle.  We can all improve something.  Healthy and happy usually go together, so as we endeavor to set and reach our goal, it can be a delightful journey.
