longevity

  1. Longevity is within your control

    Has the ‘fountain of youth’ just been discovered?

    Happy Labor Day!

    The summer is winding down, autumn is coming, and in just a few short weeks, you’ll be stocking up on Halloween candy.

    But you don’t have to worry about any of that today. Today is the perfect chance to kick back, unwind, and enjoy the good weather while it’s still here -- and there’s no better way to celebrate the “fruits of your labor” than that!

    New research reveals what just may be the key to keeping “young” even as you grow old, and it’s a whole lot simpler than you might think.

    It’s not a drug. It’s not a diet. It’s not even some exotic new supplement just hitting the market.

    No, this key to longevity is in two things that you have power over, even if it sometimes feels like you don’t.

    The first one might come as a complete surprise, since it’s not something most folks typically link to health: control.

    How much control do you feel like you have over your day and over your life? Maybe not as much as you’d like.

    You always imagined that your golden years would be spent enjoying your hobbies… kicking back on a beach… or traveling the world.

    Instead, your days might be built around endless errands, constant medical appointments, and bill after bill after bill.

    If you’ve ever felt that way yourself, it’s time to stick your elbows out a little and reclaim your life, as the first new study finds that the more control you have, the “younger” you’ll feel.

    Looking for a place to start?

    I’ve got just the ticket: Commit to a daily walk. Go where you want… WHEN you want… and make sure that everyone else has to plan around you, not the other way around.

    It’s not only a great way to reclaim your own time. It’s also the OTHER way to feel young!

    A second new study finds that keeping active is the other key to staying youthful no matter what the calendar says.

    Seniors were given step counters and told to boost their activity levels if they could.

    The folks who didn’t – or didn’t do it much – felt every bit their age and then some.

    But those who increased their daily activity reported a younger “subjective” age – or how old you feel – after just five weeks of regular strolling.

    On some level, this might seem silly. What should it matter if you “feel” young?

    But it does matter. Quite a bit, in fact.

    Seniors who feel younger consistently report a better overall quality of life. Just as importantly, feeling younger can help you avoid or prevent chronic disease.

    That daily walk will also help you stay young in another way – one that can literally be measured. The vitamin D your body generates from sun exposure can actually SLOW aging deep inside your DNA, according to a study last year.

    And it starts with a walk.

    Now, find a good pair of sneakers, get moving, and don’t let anyone stand in your way.

    This is YOUR time now. Use it.

  2. Longevity linked to going outside

    Your step-by-step guide to a longer life

    It's the powerful secret to living longer and better that can replace not just one but TWO entire classes of medication.

    This one works for just about anybody... can be done just about anywhere... and it won't cost you a penny.

    It's not a gadget. It's not a gimmick. It's not even exercise.

    Ready for the secret?

    All you have to do is get up, head for the door, and step outside.

    That's pretty much it, my friend, as new research shows how going out can have as big an impact on your health and longevity as drugs for cholesterol and blood pressure.

    And it can increase your risk of reaching the next big milestone in aging by about 70 percent!

    In the new study, 71 percent of folks who went outside frequently at the age of 78 made it to the age of 85.

    Just 43 percent of those who rarely went out hit that marker.

    The benefits are just as big when you're even older. At the age of 90, nearly two-thirds of the folks who went out frequently reached the age of 95.

    Sadly, just 38 percent of those who rarely went out reached that milestone.

    Now, of course, people who stay indoors tend to be a little sicker in the first place.

    In the study, they were also more likely to have other problems, including loneliness and chronic pain conditions.

    But even after the researchers made adjustments for these and other problems, the numbers held... meaning that getting up and going out isn't just "good for you."

    It's powerful medicine that can improve and extend lives as effectively as common medications.

    I know that sounds pretty unlikely, but there are some real reasons for the benefits.

    Going outside is more than just breathing in fresh air.

    It means making decisions about where to go and what to do, interacting with the world around you, and meeting with and speaking to others -- all of which have been shown to improve both physical and mental health, especially in seniors.

    If you've spent too much time inside, let this new study be your call to action.

    Get up. Get outside.

    You don't have to go anywhere in particular. You don't need to do anything specific.

    Just walking around your neighborhood, messing around in your yard, wandering the local mall or shopping center, or watching the birds in your favorite local park will all do the trick.
