If you care about living a long and healthy life, there are many simple yet unusual habits scientifically proven to help you in your journey to a healthy lifestyle.
Here are five of such unusual habits that can help a person stay both healthy and happy:
- DANCE!Scientists from France say that learning to dance is the best way to prolong one’s lifespan. They have found that the best dance to help you have a long life is salsa. It makes the bones strong, improves lung function and the blood system, and helps to cope with asthma. Any other active and joyful dancing will work too. The main thing is to keep moving and to stay in an uplifted mood.
- IGNORE PUBLIC OPINION!
Scientists from the USA claim that spitting on a public opinion can help a person live longer. When we think about the reactions of the people around us, we are more restrained, less spontaneous, and nervous.
These nuances result in the fact that people become less happy. And as scientists have proved, an unhappy person lives a shorter life.
- SLEEP FROM 10 AM TO 6 PM!Chinese doctors have created a whole system that explains which organs restore and why sleeping from 10 P.M. to 6 A.M. is better if you want to live longer.
For example, the immune system fights viruses and removes toxins from the body from 9 P.M. to 11 P.M. The liver restores actively from 11 P.M. to 1 A.M., and lungs get cleared from 3 A.M. to 5 A.M. That’s why we can have a slight cough at this time period. The bowels get cleaned closer to morning, from 5 A.M. to 7 A.M.
- EAT BREAD CRUST!
German biochemists from the Institute of Human Nutrition and Food Science in Kiel recommend eating bread crust. The crust’s antioxidants that prevent the development of colon cancer and cleanse the body are formed in bread during the baking process.
The chief of research, Thomas Hoffman, says, ” We noticed that there are 8 times more antioxidants in a bread’s crust than in the rest of the loaf while studying the properties of bread. That’s why it’s the crust that gives more benefits to the health than the crumbs.”
- WEAR WET SOCKS OVERNIGHT!Shocking right? Wet socks bring many benefits. Due to the contractions of blood vessels that appear when your feet start to cool down, all the good nutrients are sent to your tissues and organs. Our body needs these nutrients to stimulate circulation and fight most infections. Moreover, when your feet start to warm up again, the vessels start to dilate, which makes toxins stuck in the tissue release into the bloodstream and leave the body.
