Amy Chan

Perhaps the most dominant desire in the heart of a man is immortality, or at least to live long in this planet called Earth. Though you cannot actually achieve immortality while you're still in your physical body, there are things you can do to add more years into your life. By following them you might just be able to live to see your descendants up to the third generation.

Physical activity even if not technically in the form of an exercise can increase your chances of having a long and healthy life. Most deadly diseases that are known to men have been linked to lack of lack of exercise. Exercise doesn't just keep your bones and muscles strong, it also helps improve your mood, a factor that is essential in getting rid of stress.

Eating healthy foods is just as important as getting enough physical activity. Most people do not realize that the foods they think are healthy are actually the reason why they are always sick and tired. If you know how to choose well between what's really healthy and what's not you will cut your risk for certain medical condition to half. As much as possible, stay away from processed foods and go for more fruits and veggies.

It is also important that you get adequate rest and sleep. Sleep is perhaps the only time for the body to repair damaged cells and regenerate new ones. Sleep can also increase your body's rate to heal from wounds. Aim for at least seven hours of sleep every night. And don't forget to take power naps in the afternoon.

Stress is simply the root of all diseases. Stroke, heart disease, cancer and even a simple as sleep disorder, they are all results of stress. Get rid of stress and you will surely add more quality years in your life. Remain stressed and you will die before your time.

Although modern technology has offered a lot in improving the health of many, only the simple and the natural things in life can really help us to live longer. And yet, more and more people are ignoring these simple truths. Nevertheless it is not yet too late for anyone who wants to achieve the desire of their hearts to live long and quality lives in this world.
