Exercising is an investment into a longer life which can now be measured. A doctor at Brigham and Women’s Hospital has conducted a study which offered some interesting results we can measure in correlation to the time we spend exercising and the amount of time working out can extend our lives. The study shows we can roughly estimate a return of seven minutes of life extension for each minute of moderate to vigorous exercise we perform. This research makes exercising to extend life and add quality to our lives less abstract and more concrete. It is excellent motivation to get up off the couch and take a brisk walk as soon as possible. You could also walk to your local dentist in places like Aurora, CO.
A study was conducted over decades that focused on people and their consumption of tree nuts. The study found people who ate them on regular basis live longer lives as attributed to the oils found in the nuts. Consuming serving of nuts 28 grams or higher at least four times per week showed the most life extending results. This is an excellent reason to increase the amount of tree nuts you consume in your daily diet. This is an easy and delicious way to eat your way to a longer life.
Keep on Working
Recent studies have shown people who keep working past the age of 60 live longer. Many health experts are advising people to make a work plan for post-retirement.

It will also help to assure you continue to receive health benefits from your local health club or dental group.
