2. Stop eating when you are 80% full:

At every meal, stop eating when you feel about 80% satisfied. By eating less means the Metabolism has less work to perform, putting less stress on the stomach.

American researchers have also found animals can live up to twice of their age as long when their food intake is reduced to approx 80%.

3. Take proper sleep:

Not taking proper sleep can increase the risk of health issues such as 'depression' and heart diseases. A small change in sleeping habits can make a big change. Going to bed just one hour earlier can led to a significant drop in blood pressure, also lower the risk of heart attack and strokes.

4. Be a conscientious person:

People who are careful with money, thoughtful, intricately focused and like to do work on its right time tend to live longer. In conscientious people the chance of stress is less and this can improve their sleep. They also appear to move towards healthier choices and can live less risky lifestyles.

5. Eat fresh fruit:

Studies have shown that chilled fruit contains fewer health-boosting nutrients, than the food which is kept at normal room temperature or which is fresh. For example, tomatoes and peppers contain double the betacarotene and 20 times more lycopene if it is not freezed. Eating fresh fruits lower rates of certain cancers, boosts the immune system and avoids premature aging.

6. Drink plenty of apple juice:

Apple juice keeps your brain active and young. It repairs short-term memory loss. By drinking two glasses of apple juice a day reduces the formation of clots in the brain which fights the damage of brain hemorrhage.

7. Give up Smoking:

According to a latest research, smoking not only shortens your life by approximately 10 years, but it also lowers your quality of life in old age, as smokers are more likely to suffer from debilitating illnesses.

8. Watch an hour less TV a night:

The more TV you watch, the longer your body is sat around doing nothing, muscles aren’t exercised and calories aren’t burnt off, raising your risk of illness and early death.

9. Believe in yourself:

There is a strong link between faith and living longer. Having strong beliefs helps people deal with 'stress' and emotional problems, and also seems to offer protection against heart, respiratory and digestive problems. Faith allows us to find inner peace and satisfaction.

10. Have a social network:

Having strong emotional relations with friends and family protects us from isolation, depression and even mental illness. For human beings, love and intimacy are as essential as food and water. Spend more time developing connections with your parents, siblings, cousins, grandparents, friends, coworkers and neighbors. It makes a strong happy healthy life.
