  • I would say the basic ways of living longer is by maintaining a healthy life style- good hygiene, right diet, regular exercise workout. But the most important of all is happiness. When we are not happy or remain sad constantly we shorten our life span so be happy and live longer.

  • Your points are very good and correct, thanks so much for the enlightment.

    But in one of your points, you said and i quote  "Avoid public toilet". What of a situation whereby you are a trader, and you are selling things in the market, and any time you feel pressed the only available toilet is a public toilet, what can we do about that?

  • I think you should have been specific when you mentioned smoking as a habit that shortens the human lifespan. We all know tobacco is the only enemy that harbors smoking. Tobacco should be banned in our societies.

One can have a consistent routine of what are written up there but won't show on one's body. First be cool woth everyone around  it i mean  be at peace everyone day by day

  • All you have emphasized above are correct. Infact, I have found out that the best way to live in this world is to have free mind. Always positive in anything about life. Always doing the right things as much as it is within your power and above all being heavenly minded by accepting & confessing Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour.

  • If you want to live a long, healthy life, make sure you're among the nonsmokers. Smoking contributes to heart disease, osteoporosis, emphysema and other chronic lung problems, and stroke. It makes breathing during exercise much harder and thus can make activity less enticing. It appears to compromise memory, too.
