Deny Death with LONGEVITY Prescription

I’ve never owned a crystal ball. And I can’t see into the future. But I’m still going to make a prediction about you.

With each passing year, you’ll fight tooth and nail to stay healthy. Diet, exercise, health trends… you intend to keep up with it all. Whatever it takes to stay in the best possible shape, you can.

I don’t possess magical powers. I’m simply making an educated guess.

After all, you read Living Well Daily, so I KNOW you take your health seriously.

But I’m also betting that, like many of my patients, your desire to stay healthy can sometimes make you go to extremes.

I’m going to tell you exactly what I tell them. “STOP all that nonsense!”

You don’t need to run yourself ragged. There’s an EASIER way to live a longer, healthier life.

I often pull out a prescription pad, write MYB on a slip, and hand it to patients to tack on their refrigerators. It’s a reminder to Move Your Body.

MYB doesn’t mean you have to run a marathon or bench press your own body weight. Instead, it’s simply encouragement to fit in some basic movement daily.

And researchers at the National Cancer Institute agree. Their study published in a recent volume of the journal JAMA Network Open found even moderate exercise lowered the risk of death from all causes.

The researchers combed through data from 272,550 people ages 59–82. They found that folks who participated in regular physical activity over a 12-year-period had a 13 percent lower risk of all-cause mortality than those who weren’t active.

Folks who enjoyed racquet sports like tennis or pickleball and those who jogged reaped the biggest rewards, including having the lowest risk of heart disease and cancer. But the study also confirmed that consistent exercise of any sort delivered significant benefits.

In other words, Move Your Body.

I’ve found the easiest way to incorporate more movement into your life is to pick something you enjoy. You’re far more likely to keep it up because it’s fun.

Like to walk in the woods? Add a daily stroll to your schedule. Enjoy gardening? Well, go ahead and dig in the dirt. Always wanted to learn to bowl? There’s no time like the present.

It doesn’t matter WHAT you do, just that you do it regularly.

P.S. When you make sure you’re getting enough of THIS specific nutrient in your diet, you can dial back your efforts and STILL be set. I like to call it the “lazy man’s secret to super-aging.”
