Want to Live Longer? You CAN’T Miss THIS

Everyone wants to live longer.  

More importantly…NO ONE wants to die young. 

I often tell you about various way to stay healthy and young. 

And this time is no different.  

 I’m going to tell you about the one simple thing that will keep you from kicking the bucket too soon… and how to get started today.  

Everyone knows that exercise is good for you. But did you know that LACK of physical activity can be deadly? 

In a recent study, researchers analyzed the amount of physical activity people did over a 22-year-period to determine its impact on mortality—especially death from heart disease. 

The researchers checked in with the individuals three times over that time span (1984-86, 1995-97, and 2006-08). 

Compared to those who exercised the most throughout the studythose who were the least physically active were TWICE as likely to die from any cause at all… and were THREE TIMES more likely to die from heart disease. 

This makes sense since regular exercise is proven to keep your heart healthy.   

Exercise a simple way to improve your health and extend your life… yet it’s estimated that only about HALF of the adults in the US get enough movement in their life. 

Is it any wonder we’re a nation of sick, dying people? 

This latest study comes on the heels of another recent study published in The BMJ showing that regularly doing any activity at all—even simply walking or vacuuming—could help you live longer. 

And those who were the most active were up to 70% less likely to die compared to the least active. 

This study also showed the dangers of inactivity, with people who spend 9.5 hours a day SITTING being much more likely to die sooner than their active counterparts. 

No matter how you slice it, more movement = longer life, and less movement = a shorter life. 

It’s time to lace up your walking shoes.
