How to Live Longer and Happier?

Have you ever wondered how you can add years to your life, or how to stay young and healthy? How to find the balance between enough “me-time” and good interpersonal relationships? Because we really need both.

Good Company Serves as a Buffer Against Stress

Chronic stress weakens the immune system and ages cells faster, ultimately shortening life span by years. So what is the solution? Seek any activity that may reduce stress. Spend more time in nature, associate with people who have similar goals. Reorganise your stuff in the closet or in the backyard, have a luxury bath, listen peaceful music or read a good book.

We need friends we can talk to without being misunderstand or criticized. In the smallest circle, we have our family and closest friends. How peaceful is that microcosm of society? As human beings we are responsible for ourselves. Surrounding yourself with positive people can boost your mood, health and productivity.

You Just Need to Take More Time for Yourself!
