Follow these 18 simple rules and you won’t just live longer—you’ll make those (many, many) years count.
1. Stop smoking
Four years after doing so, your chance of having a heart attack falls to that of someone who has never smoked.
After ten years, your lung cancer risk drops to nearly that of a nonsmoker.
Concerned? See your doctor as techniques for earlier detection and new treatments for lung cancer exist.
2. Exercise daily
Thirty minutes of activity is all that’s necessary. Three ten-minute walks will do it. Or if you are keen for a run check out this expert advice on the pros and cons of running.
3. Eat your produce
Fruit, vegetables … whatever your favourites are, just make sure you eat them every day.
