1. Get regular checkups
Early diagnosis is critical for the prevention of disease and age-related decline, so it’s important to get yourself checked regularly, and as comprehensively as possible.
At the very least, I make it a point to have a complete annual physical exam that includes blood count and metabolic blood chemistry panels, a thyroid panel, and testing to reveal potential deficiencies in vitamin D, vitamin B, iron, and magnesium (all nutrients that our body needs to perform a variety of essential functions).
Poor diet is the top driver of non-communicable diseases worldwide, killing at least 11 million people every year. Here are some of my diet rules for longer life:
Just 15 to 25 minutes of moderate exercise a day can prolong your life by up to three years if you are obese, and seven years if you are in good shape, one study found.
I try not to focus on the specific type of exercise I do. Anything that gets you up out of the chair, moving and breathing more intensely on a regular basis is going to help.
That’s why the method I practice and recommend the most is extremely simple: Walking. Brisk walking can improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, and high blood pressure. It can even ease symptoms of depression and anxiety.
Clinical data shows that intermittent fasting — an eating pattern where you cycle between periods of eating and fasting — can improve insulin stability, cholesterol levels, blood pressure, mental alertness, and energy.
To ease into the “eat early, and less often” diet, I started with a 16:8-hour intermittent fasting regimen. This is where you eat all of your meals within one eight-hour period — for instance, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., or between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m.
But keep in mind that a fasting or caloric-restricted diet isn’t for everyone; always talk to your doctor before making any drastic changes to your diet and eating routine.
One of the biggest toxic habits is excessive use of alcohol. Studies show that high and regular use can contribute to damages to your liver and pancreas, high blood pressure, and the immune system.
Large amounts of sugar consumption is another bad habit. Sure, in the right doses, sugars from fruits, vegetables, and even grains play an important role in a healthy diet. I eat fruits and treat myself to some ice cream once in a while. But make no mistake: Excess sugar in all its forms is poison. To lessen my intake, I avoid processed foods and sugary drinks.
Lastly, I don’t smoke — but for anyone who does, I recommend quitting as soon as possible. According to the CDC, cigarette smoking is behind 480,000 deaths per year in the U.S.
A handful of studies of millions of sleepers show that less sleep can lead to a shorter life. Newer studies are strengthening known and suspected relationships between inadequate sleep and a wide range of disorders, including hypertension, obesity and diabetes, and impaired immune functioning.
I aim for at least seven hours of sleep per night. For me, an essential ingredient for getting quality sleep is darkness; I make sure there’s no light and no electronic devices in my room before bedtime.
If your goal is to enjoy the fruits of your labor, see your children's children and be strong to enjoy life for as long as you live, it is important to engage in some new attitude that will take you to the desired altitude. You need these six to-dos and then you can cruise to a good old age.
