These Daily Habits Are Taking Valuable Years Off Your Life

September 12, 2015 2 min read

When you think of a well-balanced, healthy lifestyle, you typically think of eating right regularly and exercising daily. But, surprise, there are a lot of other factors besides these two that make up your overall wellbeing. If you're a Netflix addict, someone who thinks sleep is overrated, a homebody, or someone who spends more time sitting than standing, then you should listen up. Here are four things that are taking years off your life. health 1. You spend the majority of your day sitting down. health A study published in the Annals of Internal Medicinefound sedentary time, whether that be while working, watching TV, etc. lead to an increased risk of all types of death, including increased risk of cardiovascular disease to type 2 diabetes. 2. You don't eat enough spice. health A study published in the British Medical Journal by a group of Chinese researchers found that people who consumed spicy foods almost every day of the week were 14 percent less likely to die than those who only ate it less than once a week. Capsaicin, which is the main active ingredient of chili pepper, may be to thank, as it's known for its anti-obesity, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, and antihypertensive effects. 3. You spend too much time by yourself. health Prefer to spend most of your time alone? This may be affecting your health. A recent review published in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Sciencediscovered that people who shy away from social interaction are at a greater risk for an earlier death. The researchers of the study also found a link between social isolation and loneliness with severe obesity. 4. Your drive to work is too long. health We all know that a long commute can cause us to feel stressed, tired and annoyed, but did you know that it can also decrease physical activity as well as elevate blood pressure? Research conducted in Texas and published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, found this to be true, and that commuting distances of more than 15 miles made way for higher BMIs and waist circumferences.
