Five ways to live longer
1. Hang out with friends to reduce your chance of early death. 2. Walking is great for physical and mental health. Walking a dog is one of the best ways to counter the decline in activity as we get older. 3. Frequent hugs protect stressed people from getting illnesses. Volunteers were exposed to viruses and those with social support, measured in hugs, got less sick. 4. Dark chocolate: Eating (a little) dark chocolate regularly is good for your heart and mind. As chocoholics say, a balanced diet is chocolate in both hands. 5. Drink and be merry: Red wine and coffee in moderation have proven benefits for your heart and memory.
