Another few EASY things to do to live longer…

Floss! We now know that plaque (bacterial film that covers teeth and gum lines) may be responsible for heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, some forms of cancer, and stroke). Oral bacteria can create proteins that are found in artery walls and in the bloodstream. These proteins can cause blood to clot more easily and may also cause inflammation in the body. Floss daily to help add six years to your life.

Be grateful. When you appreciate your life and things around you (even when your health may not be the best) this will help you live longer.   Appreciate something every day: sounds of birds, the glow of a sunset…

Cultivate healthy relationships. If you are involved in a negative relationship, you know– those people who pull you down– get rid of that relationship. Research shows that people with more friends and people in healthy relationships live longer.

Hope this helps.
