THE average life expectancy of Malaysians has increased to 75 years, with 27,278 living beyond 99 years. What is the secret to a healthy and long life?
Scientists say that 25 per cent of our survival is determined by our genes and 75 per cent depends on our lifestyle choices. There are a number of factors that determine our longevity.
It is not only by eating certain types of foods and exercising but rather more about wholesome healthy living in body and mind. It is no use eating the right kind of food if our social and human interaction is a mess. Depression, stress, worries, anger, jealousy, malice, pride and vengeance leads to loneliness, poor quality of life and a shorter life span.
People should keep on doing whatever that keeps them happy. The secret to healthy living is love. Love life, love people and most of all, love yourself.
