5 Surprisingly Simple Ways To Live A Longer Life

As much as we may complain about work and financial struggles, few of us would want our lives to end tomorrow. Most people want to squeeze as much fun, love, and happiness out of this life as we can. The only problem is that at a certain point, our body starts to fail and doing the things we love becomes more difficult.

For centuries, humans have been searching for a way to stay alive forever. While there isn’t a way to cheat death–yet–there are plenty of things you can do to literally add years to your life. Here are some you might not know:

1. Make New Friends: Research shows that being social can cut your chances of an early death in half. Likewise a lack of social relationships was found to be as harmful as smoking 15 cigarettes a day.

2. Floss Your Teeth: Just cleaning between your teeth on a regular basis can add 6.4 years to your life.

3. Get Busy: Leading a productive life, even when we get older, can help us stay alive longer than if we’re lazy.

Key to long life? Stay happy, share your happiness. Be busy and be busy with others. Positive people surround themselves with positive people and experiences. Avoid adverts and negative TV and news.
