For centuries humanity has scoured the Earth in search of ways to prolong our mortal lives. Modern science has shown us that we could have had it all along. Natural plants and a few good habits can extend a lifespan by decades.Exercise

There is a reason so many professionals recommend exercise for a healthy lifestyle: it works. Even working out in short bursts throughout the day keeps your body sharper. It can prevent cancer, diabetes, and depression.

Watch Your Diet

In every corner of the world is a society of people with a lifespan longer than the average human. Each one attributes its longevity to its diet. The Mediterraneans eat olive and fish oils with their fruits and vegetables. When they reach old age, they retain more of their looks than other cultures do. The people with the highest lifespan are a tribe from Okinawa, Japan. They are careful not to overindulge at any meal and their plates are stocked with yellow and green vegetables It can prevent cancer, diabetes, and depression..

Take Vitamins Too

The symptoms of aging are caused by a shortening of your chromosomes. It is an inevitable side effect of the cell division and oxidation necessary for us to keep living. While it cannot be stopped, it can be slowed. Taking certain vitamins will prolong the life of your chromosomes and your self.

Here are a few examples:

-Vitamin D

-Antioxidants like astaxanthin and polyphenols

-Krill (because of the high omega-3 index)

Quit Smoking

You have probably heard this a million times, but your mother is right. Smoking is really bad for your health. A 50 year long study on the subject showed that breaking the habit adds significant years to your lifespan. Quitting before age 30 will earn you a decade. Even stopping at 60 will give you back three years you would have lost.

Be Social

An Australian study showed that having friends can extend your life. Their research on elder patients spanned ten years and indicated that those with a vibrant social life were more likely to survive the decade.

Be careful which friends you choose though. Studies also indicate that people pick up the bad habits of their friends, and those habits can be damaging to the lifespan you are trying to extend. Some habits to avoid are smoking and overeating.

Sleep

Getting enough sleep is the most taken for granted habit a person could have. It helps prevent mood disorders, obesity, and immune deficiencies. Napping can really improve your health and your lifespan too. Studies show it reduces your risk of heart disease by 37%. Anything you can do to prevent illness is the ticket to a longer, better life.
