Here are 5 ways to increase your lifespan

A new Harvard Study reveals the fountain of youth

Well, since we haven't found the philosopher's stone yet why not try these simple habits that are now proven to increase your lifespan. A new study conducted by the Harvard University reveal five healthy habits we can develop to add more than ten years to your average life expectancy. 

Most of them are the basic rules that we've heard several times before. Be it having a balanced diet to not smoking. Since now these sayings are not coming from paranoid parents or relatives but are based on quantified facts, we just can't ignore them any more. The study claims that these healthy habits can gain up to 14 years of life for women and 12 years for men. 

According to the study: For participants who didn’t adopt any of the low-risk lifestyle factors (see gallery below), the researchers estimated that life expectancy at age 50 was 29 years for women and 25.5 years for men. But for those who adopted all five low-risk factors, life expectancy at age 50 was projected to be 43.1 years for women and 37.6 years for men. In other words, women who maintained all five healthy habits gained, on average, 14 years of life, and men who did so gained 12 years, compared with those who didn’t maintain healthy habits.

Take a look at the five golden life habits that're going to get you live long, healthy and happy, provided you stick to all of them.
