Better Retirement With Omega 3

An article at Newsmaxhealth “7 Secrets to Living to 100 in Good Health” by Charlotte Libov shares seven tips that can help have a better retirement.

Here is an excerpt:  When the first U.S. Census was conducted in 1790, only 2 percent of the population was over 65.  In 1900, the average American lifespan was only 47.

“If you are reading this article there is a very real change that you will live to be 100 because of medical advances,” says Stephen Jones, M.D., board-certified geriatric medicine specialist and director for Healthy Aging at Greenwich Hospital in Greenwich, Conn.

The article (linked below) shows seven ways to live to be 100.  Here are four:

1.      Take control of stress. When you’re under stress, your body releases cortisol, known as “the stress hormone.” Cortisol accelerates your bodily processes, speeding up aging.

2.      Laugh a lot. A good belly laugh reduces blood pressure, clears the lungs, and produces endorphins, the so-called “happy” hormone that reduces pain. The average child laughs 300 times a day. Adults: 17 times.

3.      Use your brain. Years ago, doctors believed that, unlike other organs, the brain could not regenerate.  Now we know this is not true. Important connections between brain cells can be re-established. When your brain is stimulated, more connections are made, no matter your age.

One way to be happy and use your brain is with Super Thinking exercises.   See how we use Super Thinking to create a better retirement with Super Writing and Self Publishing.    See how we use Super Thinking to Learn Spanish in Three Days.
