Lazy living cuts life expectancy by 14 years!


Monday 27th October 2008

There’s a lot to be said about this ‘healthy living’ malarky, and research by the University of Cambridge and the Medical Research Council in Norfolk has found that by introducing simple changes to your lifestyle, you can add up to 14 years to your life expectancy!

We live in a world where everything can be solved with a pill or a quick lunchtime nip and tuck, but when it comes to living longer, it takes a little more effort and in our opinion, an extra 14 years is nothing to sniff at!

The usual suspects such as alcohol, tobacco and junk food are obvious factors to cut down on, whilst taking the time to prepare fresh, healthy meals and go out for a light jog are things more of us should be doing as part of our daily routine. Modern living has made us lazy and less motivated, and shifting towards a more balanced lifestye will actually give us more energy to be able to enjoy it a bit more, and who knows, we might even get a few extra years thrown in for good measure?!
