According to researchers at Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health, living a healthy lifestyle:

  • Reduces cardiovascular disease by 82%.
  • Reduces the incidence of cancer by 65% and
  • Increases your lifespan ten years or more.

Over a thirty-year period, the researchers studied 78,865 women and 44,354 men, all over the age of 27. In their study, they concluded that there were specific healthy lifestyle habits that produced good health and a long life expectancy:

  1. Eating Healthy Food – Examples include vegetables, tree nuts, high fiber foods, whole grains, fish, seafood, fruits, berries, eggs, lean beef, chicken, lamb, sourdough bread, Ezekiel bread, legumes, yogurt, potatoes and dark chocolate.
  2. Daily Exercise of 30 minutes – Exercise includes aerobic and anaerobic (strength exercises like weight lifting, core exercises, etc.).
  3. Maintain Healthy Body Weight – Maintaining an optimum body weight through healthy eating and a low calorie diet. According to my research, a low calorie diet is between 1,800 – 2,200 calories for men (average) and 1,500 – 1,800 calories for women (average).
  4. Moderate Bad Behavior – Bad includes smoking, alcohol, unhealthy food (i.e. junk food, fast food, soda, coffee, drug use, sugar, salt).
  5. Adequate Sleep – Between 6.5 hours to 8 hours of sleep a night. The key is getting five sleep cycles in every night. Every person is different. Each sleep cycle can range from between 65 minutes to 90 minutes.

Good health is a Rich Habit.
