In addition to diet and fitness routines, there are other traits that can help contribute to your quality of life. Several of these characteristics are:
- Social Connectivity
Being social is a prime directive of the human spirit. Perhaps these meaningful connections contribute to a longer life through developing an evolutionary drive to survive to continue to love and be happy.
Thoughtful people are more apt to make better health-related decisions when it comes to diet and other health-related endeavors.
- Don’t Worry (Too Much)
Balance is best but try to let things go in a way that allows you not to sweat the small stuff, helping reduce your stress levels and thus enjoying life.
- Be Optimistic
Optimists tend to be more resistant to stress and therefore are increasingly healthier than pessimists. How can you try to be more optimistic today?
Laughter isn’t just enjoyable, it’s good for you. It can reduce stress and boost your immune system.
Find out what makes you happy and go after it. When you wake up in the morning, set a tone for the day that is joyful and uplifting and see what happens.
Although there are plenty of things we can not control, the idea of trying to intentionally cultivate the traits and characteristics above can help contribute to a longer and more fulfilling life.
