How to live a longer life

Key pointers to living longerThe majority of the population would love to hear some key pointers to living longer. A recent study by the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention found that people can live a longer and healthy life if they start practicing some healthier behaviors now.

"If you want to lead a longer life and feel better, you should adopt healthy behaviors - not smoking, getting regular physical activity, eating healthy, and avoiding excessive alcohol use," said CDC Director Thomas R. Frieden.

The study found that the individuals who participated in some of these behaviors were 66 percent less likely to die early from cancer and 65 percent less likely to die from heart disease. Also, those who took part in all four of these tips were 63 percent less likely to die early compared to those who did not.

Also, when individuals start thinking about the retirement age, they may want to think about moving to a retirement living community. These neighborhoods can offer aging adults with everything they need in one area, and make it easier to keep up with their active lifestyles.
