Fighting the battle of longevity can be seen as one that is a very steep uphill one. There’s so many processes to keep check of, many of which seem out of your reach. However, there still are things which you can do to make a difference.
While strength training sure makes you look good, there’s surprisingly little proof that it helps promote your general healthspan. So instead, we focus on cardio. In particular, endurance training such as bodyweight challenges or long distance running can help a lot. Personally, we have to recommend High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), which has had a lot of solid correlation to physical longevity in studies over the past few years!
Diet is of course one of the keystones to a healthy and long-lasting body. Plant-rich foods are a big part of longevity research into dieting. While most dieting plans don’t pass the test of time, the Mediterranean diet and intermittent fasting have proven to be surprisingly resilient, and so we recommend these two.
You didn’t think this would be on a longevity post? You’d be wrong. In reality, mental health is just as important as physical health when it comes to lifespan, primarily due to the massive amount of mental diseases that can occur. We recommend meditating for 10 minutes a day.
Memory is a big part of a lot of old-age issues. Best way to improve your memory at a late stage? Keep learning! Read books, do projects, take classes… All of these are good methods of keeping your brain active.
