Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – Having a long life and a healthy body is everyone’s wish. However, this desire can only be obtained if a person has a healthy lifestyle.
According to CNBC Make It, an unpublished study found that there are a number of lifestyle routines that can increase a person’s lifespan by more than 20 years. This observational study looked at the lifestyle choices of more than 700,000 US military veterans aged 40 to 99 years.
According to research presented at the annual meeting of the American Society for Nutrition, there are eight routines that are claimed to add 24 years to men’s ‘life ration’ and 21 years for women if done at the age of 40.
“We were very surprised by how much one, two, three, or all eight of these lifestyle factors could gain,” said Xuan-Mai Nguyen, the study’s lead author and health science specialist in the Department of Veterans Affairs, quoted Tuesday (15/15/2018). 8/2023).
“The earlier the better, but if you stick to that lifestyle in your 40s, 50s or 60s, it’s still beneficial,” Nguyen adds.
So, what are the eight habits that can add up to 24 years of age? Here’s the list.
2. Not having an addiction to opioids (pain relievers)
3. No smoking
4. Manage stress levels
5. Implement a healthy diet
6. Do not drink excessively
7. Sleep with enough and quality
8. Maintaining positive social relationships
Nguyen said, even if only adopting one of the eight habits, a person can get an “extra life” of 4.5 years for men and 3.5 years for women.
Based on the same research, lack of physical activity, use of opioids, and smoking can increase the risk of death by 30 to 45 percent.
“Stress, excessive drinking, poor diet, and poor sleeping habits each increased the risk of death by about 20 percent. Then, the lack of positive social relationships was associated with an increased risk of death by 5 percent,” wrote the study.
