Longevity is God’s gift. It has been in existence right from creation. The Holy Bible reported long ages for most Patriarchs. Some of them lived for more than the prescribed age of 120 years.
. Abraham’s father died at 205 years
. Abraham himself died at 175 years of age (Genesis 25:7)
. Sarah died at 127 years of age
. Isaac died at 180 years of age
. Methuselah 969 years (GENESIS 35:28)
. Joseph 110 years (GENESIS 9:29)
Scientists called the study of Longevity – Gerontology. The word comes from the Greek word ‘’ old man’’ and ‘’study’’. The oldest man lived 115 years 252 days. The oldest person – Jeanne Loise Calment in France (1875-1997) was reported to be the fully authenticated aged person that ever lived. The oldest living woman, Bessie Cooper (born in USA, August 26, 1896) became the World’s oldest person when seen in June 21, 2011 at the age of 114 years 10 months. As of May 11, 2012, she was 115 years 250 days old. She put her exceptional longevity down to a good diet with No junk foods. The oldest living man Jiroemon Kimura (Japan) was born on April 19, 1897. He celebrated his 115th birth-day in 2012. He appeared to be the only man verified born in the 19th Century who was still alive when last seen.
Early in the 19th Century (1840), there was an increase in life expectancy of three months for every year. The first substantial increase came from tackling infant mortality, infectious diseases – Small-Pox, Polio, Diphtheria, Typhoid. Tackling old age diseases also lead to a sharp improvement in longevity. Factors that caused the improvements are Better Health, Better Nutrition, Better Medical Care, Better Education, Better Technology, Better Sanitation, Better Income and public Health Innovations like sanitation, Drugs and Immunization. Many Countries experienced the improvements. Hence, 100 years longevity became the expected life duration, barring accidents. Rich countries enjoyed the improvement first, for longevity is good if life itself is good
Scientists recommended diets for longevity as follows –
. A diet low in Fat and Calories, but high in fresh fruits and vegetables (The key to long life is the diet with olive oil and chocolate. You are what you eat – is a common saying.)
. Regular, moderate exercise
. A stimulated mind
. A positive attitude
. Ability to manage disability falls
Scientists went further on longevity studies and discovered that Telomeres, strands attached to chromosomes get shorter with age. So, they tried to extend age expectancy from 120 to 130 years.
They have not yet succeeded. Another Scientists suggested longevity Hypothesis to be equal to Food, Fasting and Fellowship. The idea came from their experiences from aged people. In actual fact, many people have shown a lot of concern on Longevity. Even at 30, some people feel old. They are hilarious, proud and full of themselves. Longevity hypothesis teaches people to be mindful of habits like foods, fasting and connectivity with God and other Creatures.
In general, as living conditions improve and the science of medicine advances, people can conquer untimely death.
God blessed us by adding more years to men’s age. In America, the age-span at 1900 was 45, but in 1975 it increased to 75 years. Scientists contributed to improved living styles. God made nature its own healer. The immune-systems of the body protect us towards longevity. The brain monitors all life processes. Amygdala in the brain is flushed with Adrenaline to combat any stress-causing diseases and early death. The Holy Spirit is our spiritual Guide and Teacher. He teaches us how to pray to God through fasting for longevity
People in some areas have testimonies for longevity. The Aki-n-a-wa people in Japan were seen to live longest in the World today. They are blessed. Evidence showed that their life styles were in conformity with most of the scientific recommendations for longevity. Incidentally, some people living far away in the rural areas, not officially known, are equally blessed with longevity. For instance, my grand-mother had no instruction from either a teacher or a scientist and by mere instinct she lived happily for more than 100 years. Her instinct was the Holy Spirit who blessed her with longevity.
Blessings have many benefits for men other than Longevity –
. The potential to cleanse the personality from negative attitude
. To reinforce the positive attitude to one previously in control
. Blessings work from the heart and the mind for healthy positive relationship and enthusiastic environment for better performance
. Blessings bring multi – million ideas – visions, dreams and unexpected blessings
. They bring divine health, preservation, fruitfulness and longevity
. They bring accelerated growth and development – A new way of living, thinking and working
This story is concerned with LONGEVITY BLESSINGS. I’ve experienced Blessings in my life. That I am alive today is a miracle and a blessing. God has blessed me and my children exceedingly above all that we could ask or think. And He will do the same for you. As your faith in BLESSINGS increases, watch what God will do for you. Nature heals itself. Scientists aspired to extend longevity. Apart from adding years to age, human desires are – Fitness, Well-ness, and Wisdom till the last days. Pray to God for the Blessings. He is the ultimate Giver. PRAISE HIM. The following pages describe the various blessings in detail.
8 Salvation belongs unto the LORD; Thy blessing is upon thy people. Selah
5 He shall receive the blessing from the LORD. And righteousness from God of his salvation
3 As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descends upon the mountains of Zion; For there the LORD commanded the blessing, even life for evermore
22 The blessing of the LORD, it makes rich, and he added no sorrow with it.
26 He that with-holds corn, the people shall curse him; but blessing shall be upon the head of him that sells it
. IMMUNE-SYSTEM BLESSINGS
. The Immune system is the secret in your body that makes you stay well. It contains invisible armies constantly at work to ward off dangers. Human body is a kind of fortress primed for defense at all times. This is a blessing.
THE SKIN is the first point of contact with the outside World. It forms water-proof barrier that secrets oil replete with bacteria killing properties. The skin is the body’s barometer. It is responsive to conditions in and around you. When you are too warm the skin flushes. When too cold it blanches. When something is irritating, skin lets you know. Thus, the skin promotes sensitivity and longevity.
SALIVA and TEARS contain antibacterial enzymes that help reduce the risk of infections
THE MUCUS IN THE LUNGS trap foreign bodies to cough out
There are armies within the organs and cells that fight invaders in the heart and brain. Immune system and the brain constantly communicate with various components marshaling troops to fight when and where they are needed. Immunization copies the body’s natural immune response. The body makes antibodies without having to suffer the disease. What a Blessing? This is because the body heals itself
HOT SPOTS are – The Skin, Blood Stream, Bone Marrow, Digestive tract, Liver, Spleen, Thymus, Lungs, Lymphatic System, Tonsils, Saliva and Tears
. THE BRAIN
Before the internet, before computers, before TV, before everything we know, the Earth was here. I t was empty but for trees, water and dirt. But men were blessed with all the resources needed for happiness and longevity. The BRAIN is the foundation of our development. Studies showed that it is the single biggest driver of our happiness and longevity. Our work is important because it adds riches and days to our years. The Amygdala structure in the brain is responsible for scanning our worries. It is the scanning machine. When it finds a problem, it flushes the body full of Adrenaline and stress hormones to send you into fight-or-flight mode. Stress alone degenerates longevity.
The brain regulates sleep, hunger, growth and hormonal cycles. It is the foremost longevity connection. It processes memories, emotions, cravings. It manages how you sense and navigate the World. It guides how you close your eyes, and inhale slowly when you smell something delicious, savoring the aroma and the moment. The brain largely controls the soul while the heart controls the Holy Spirit.
The brain gives chemicals that sparkle feelings of pleasure, motivation, stress and satisfaction. The brain may weigh 3 pounds, but it is truly among the most complicated object in the World.
Brain parts and Functions give us more detail.
. The hind-brain is the lower part near the neck. It regulates appetite and sleep cycle. It guides our biological desires – Eating or Sleeping. It coordinates digestive processes – Balance and hormone levels.
. THE LIMBIC SYSTEM – This area houses memories and emotions. Feelings and memories are essential tools for navigating human life. The limbic system (fist size) is around the central core of the brain. The area is for socials. It informs us about the World around us. It makes you feel alive and not dead-alive. You feel much younger than your age.
. THE CORTEX – Human process information and thoughts from emotions, senses, prior learning and direct what to do next. Language, perception, thought and more are processed in the Cortex. The PRE-CORTEX behind the fore-head, is the home of complex cognition-planning, critical thoughts and impulse control . Here we make conscious decisions and evaluate trade-offs. This links up with purpose in life (what you say, think or do) in conjunction with other parts of the brain.
22 A merry heart does good like a medicine; But a broken spirit dries the bones
30 A sound heart is the life of the flesh; But envy the rottenness of the bones
21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue; And they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof
4 A wholesome tongue is a tree of life; But perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit
During creation, God gave us foods good for eating to keep us alive and happy. (GENESIS 6:21). Scientists listed them out and classified them into categories; carbohydrate, protein, fat, fiber and so on, to make sure the right type is taken for longevity. The benefits of foods are written below –
Foods boost energy and muscle strength
. Decrease fatigue
. Increase coordination and mobility
. Reduce vascular diseases and certain cancer
. Reduce brain degeneration
. Improve all life potentials
. Reduce undue death to prolong longevity
. foods starve off age-related diseases to feel young and active
. Anti-oxidants enhance the performance of the immune and endocrine systems
. A diet rich in Vitamin D and Calcium slow aging process – Loss of smell, taste, skeleton density, graying of hair as pigment drops from hair follicle.
. Good foods help the eyes to focus well
. Vitamin E, an anti-oxidant, cures half the risk of oxidation
Scientific research told us that there are healing foods, medicinal herbs and natural remedies. They are natural Blessings for longevity. They give health and treat common symptoms. Our evolution as a specie
has been linked to the foods we eat. It’s a relationship that goes back nearly 2.8 million years and it continues today. In science, food-type affects human body in different ways, particularly, health and longevity. It is all about what we eat and why we eat them. We are richly blessed. Natural remedies include getting adequate sleep, eating balanced diet, exercising, finding time for relaxation. They all tell on health and longevity.
Studies showed that organically grown produce contain greater amounts of certain Vitamins, Minerals, higher levels of ANTI-OXIDANTS and other chemicals fundamental to good health and longevity. Inside the body, there are unstable particles called ‘’Free Radicals’’. They have a corrosive effect like a RUST on aging car. As free radical course through the body, they harm healthy cells and promote inflammation. Anti-oxidants act like body guards. They come between the destructive free radical and healthy cells to ensure no damage is done. Anti-oxidants are found in vegetables, fruits, grains, herbs and spices. Studies showed that those who consume more than (one-ounce) servings of nuts per week have 3.9% lower over-all mortality risks and lowest total death risk. People with plant-based diet live 10 years longer than their North American counter-parts. Those strictly on vegetarian diet have a significantly lower over-all mortality. The research also shows that the risk of deaths from any cause drops by 4 to 7% with Mediterranean diet
Greek men have very low rates of coronary heart disease and a longer life expectancy than men from other European countries or North America, because the Greeks followed a classic MEDITERANEAN DIET THAT WAS RICH IN Fat.
A sip of Green Tea has a preventive effect. It lowers the risk of heart disease, cancer, obesity, type 2 diabetes and helps longevity. A research in Japan showed that those who drank more green tea (7 or more cups a day) were 76% less likely to die during the 6 years study period. Another study found that among over 40,000 Japanese adults who drank at-least 5 cups of green tea a day had a 23% lower risk of death from any cause. Therefore, focusing on what you eat and drink is very important because this is the key to longevity.
Recently, Resveratrol, a chemical extracted from the fruit-back of Red-wine was reported to enhance longevity.
Some food types for health are
. GARLIC and ONION – These contain natural chemicals that boost immune systems and protect against inflammation. They contain Sulfur compounds; Disease fighting Anti-oxidants. Research confirms that Garlic can fight a wide variety of infectious agents. It can help lower cholesterol, slow the hardening of arteries and slightly lower blood pressure. They reduce the risk of heart diseases and stroke that cause many untimely deaths. As early as 1858, a French Microbiologist – Louis Pasteur, demonstrated that garlic juice impedes bacteria. Garlic inhibits many types of Viruses and fungi and kills some parasites that cause death.
HEALTHY FATS – These poly-unsaturated and mono-unsaturated fats found in foods such as Walnuts, Salmon, Avocado fight inflammation and lower the risk of heart diseases. Nut fats are loaded with protein, and high fiber. Nuts are excellent fat sources that contain Vitamins and Minerals. They also contain beneficial substances; Anti-oxidants like Vitamin E, cholesterol lowering steroids and an Amino-acid L-arginine which keeps artery walls flexible and less prone to developing blood cloths. Walnuts are excellent source of alpha-linolenic acid, an Omega -3 similar to the fatty acids in virgin Olive oil. A number of SEEDS and nuts give a boost of Se-r-o-tonic – a brain chemical that calms anxiety.
OLIVE OIL and AVOCADO – These contain mono-unsaturated fat in human diet. They are the World’s richest, healthful fats. Olive oil lowers LDL “bad” cholesterol – the type that contributes to cardio-vascular disease and raises HDL “good” cholesterol which helps guard against it. Olive oil is also rich in Anti-oxidant that helps to prevent cell damage
BEANS are high in Vitamins, Minerals, Protein and Fiber. They help to lower cholesterol and fight inflammation that could cause premature death. Beans are nutritional power houses. They are high in Vitamins A, B6, C, Foliate, Copper, Potassium, Iron and Magnesium. The fiber in beans helps to keep weight in check by making you feel full and satisfied. This reduces the risk of obesity.
WHOLE GRAINs are rich in fiber, healthy fats, Vitamins and Minerals. These complex carbohydrates help reduce the rise of cardio-vascular diseases and premature death.
WATER is the liquid of life
. It gives internal control, Emotion – like happiness
. It increases bowel movement to remove toxins from the body.
. Water stimulates the growth of red blood cells
. It releases head-ache, helps immune system, increases energy, and cleanses the skin
. You feel full and don’t eat too much to be obese
. It increases metabolic rate and reduces cramps
As the liquid of life, certainly, no body can live without water.
HAZARDS TO LONGEVITY include the following –
. Wrong diet causes decreased sensory functions – Touch, smell, taste, hearing
. Decreased functions of the Organs – pituitary, pancreas, adrenal, thyroid
. Decreased filtration as it loses its tone
. Problem in swallowing and releasing stool
. Loss of height, and lean body mass
. Hardening of blood vessels and elevation of blood pressure
. Erectile dysfunction in men
. Artery vessels become narrower as cholesterol and calcium build-up to cause high blood pressure
. Lungs – breathing declines
. Memory impairment due to decline in cell activity in the brain
. Body fat reduction causes sagging skin and wrinkles
. Loss of bone-density.
All these symptoms are evidences of longevity
21 And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten, and thou shalt gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee, and for them.
25 Who gives food to all flesh, for his mercy endures for ever
23 Much food is in the tillage of the poor; but there is that is destroyed for want of judgment
8 Remove far from me vanity and lies; give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me
. Friendly blessings – An expert said, ‘’ We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing’’. Exercise and healthy diet strengthen immune system. When you boost your immune system, you want get sick, you feel great and you add years to your life. I t was found that social net-work even with your pet is a divine gesture for health and longevity. It has disease fighting capabilities that can add years to your life.
A research studied places where disease rates are very low and longevity extremely high. They found that all of them had strong social ties within their communities and that LONELINESS WEAKENS DEFENSES. The study showed that 26% of the participants scored high because the genes responsible for inflammation were very active, while genes that help defend against viral infections were depressed.
This is the reason why lonely older people are more susceptible to illnesses and have higher mortality rates than less-isolated peers. Therefore, inviting small creatures or pets into your life can improve your health, helps to prevent disease and increases longevity. My experience with Simba, my grand-daughter’s pet confirmed this scenario. When her two playing companions went to college, Abbey was very lonely. She requested her mother to buy her a small pet to play with. Her mum consented and bought a 2 months-old playing dog. Small as the dog is, he has been keeping the whole house warm and lively. The dog kept running up and down, with Abbey chasing him around. We all love Simba. He is an intimate member of the family. Abbey nursed him like a baby, calling him her younger brother. Simba completely removed loneliness from the family. The general health of us all has improved without awareness. The physical benefits are lower blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The emotional benefits are less loneliness and more opportunities for out-door activities and socializing as mother and daughter walk the dog.
The American Heart Association concurs that pet-ownership especially dog- ownership is associated with greater longevity and reduced heart disease risk factors. Simply going outdoors when you walk your dog lifts mood which also boosts immunity and prolong longevity. Keeping pets and socializing are a Blessing. ‘Good laughs’ also stimulates circulation, enhances oxygen up-take, releases endorphin in the brain to lower stress. Laughter has been linked to increased optimism. In other words, Laughing, socializing and fun give immune protective Blessings.
SPIRITUAL LONGEVITY BLESSINGS
Mindfulness is a perfect antidote to stressful life. With gratitude, it has been scientifically proved to be a powerful force for physical health and happiness. Gratitude focuses you on what you have rather than what is lacking. Happiness comes not from getting what you want but from wanting what you have. Longevity and happiness are like sisters. A sad man cannot pray to live long. However, journaling is essentially a form of written mindfulness. Journaling like meditation and mindfulness strengthen the immune system, helps longevity and frees the brain from SHOULDS and other BLOCKS. It helps to order minds to reduce stress which causes untimely deaths
Fasting is associated with some health benefits. It improves blood sugar control, heart health and brain functions. Fasting prevents many diseases, infections and neuro-degeneration diseases. Animal studies showed that long and short-term fasting delayed aging, reduced tumors, and preserved memory for longevity. It was found that rodents fed 60% of the calories they desired, out-lived their healthy, well-fed counter-parts by more than 50% in some cases. Too much glucose in the body is harmful. Inter–mi-tent fasting helps to reverse some longevity risks. It was found that the body exhausts its sugar stores, burn fats hours without food. Thus, inter-mi-tent fasting prolongs healthy life. Though it is un-pleasant for some people, it is a Blessing.
Apart from the physical benefits of Fasting, Spiritual Fasting has tremendous Blessings for longevity.
It gives deeper intimacy with God for answered prayers.
. Without God’s signature, nothing can be successful, though longevity is our Creator’s priority.
. Fasting gives longer life, leaner body, sharper mind and place you in close intimacy with God.
. Thinking and memory studies discovered that Fasting improves overall fitness. People fasting stay younger because they don’t fool around.
. Fasting starves organism to regenerate within – To become more productive.
Thus, not eating too much and spiritual fasting are relevant to longevity on Earth.
Staying in His presence and having Him in your heart always bring you closer to Him. Only God has the absolute control on longevity. He has blessed all His children with happiness, fruitfulness and longevity. Praise His Name.
29 And he said unto them – This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting
1 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God; the powers that be are ordained of God
11 He that loves pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend
5 I remember the days of old, I meditate on all thy works, I muse on the work of thy hands
12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings
15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways
HUMAN DESIRES BLESSINGS
. Aging problems in longevity
In general, people tend to look old as aging un-folds even at a slower rate than normal, when the skin is still full of moisture and very elastic.
. As aging proceeds the ability to hear tends to reduce and you need hear-aid
. You tend to lose senses of smell, taste buds become increasingly dulled.
. Aging skeleton lose their density and become brittle as calcium levels drop. A diet rich in Vitamin D and Calcium will slow this process
. Gray hair occurs as the pigment cells in the hair follicles die off. And when the follicles waste away, the hair falls out. Hormonal differences between men and women result in different patterns of baldness.
. The lenses in the eyes slowly lose their ability to accommodate or focus as the focal length shortens
. The pupils shrink and it becomes difficult to see in lower light
. Nervous system is also affected. Reaction times slow as signals take longer to pass from the nerves to the muscle.
. Brain cells start to die as early as age 20 years. So, by the time you reach senior years, short-term memory emerges.
. You lose around 0.035oz of brain every year. This is the reason why young adults learn faster, grasp faster and easier than the older ones
Neuro-scientists divided the second half of life into 3 stages; The age of transformation from 40s till around 60s, the age of distinction from 60 to 75 years of age, and the age of completion from 75 years and above. This is the period of completion of final life journey. Seeing all these problems, middle age seniors (50-60 years) attempted to transform or make some changes as much as possible. They think they are old and had lived half their age. They became curious of the future. They tried to make sure the next half life is fulfilled, happy and not boresome. They hoped that living smarter will turn the challenge that aging put in-front of them away. They wanted to love aging, not to retire from active service but to stay fit most times. They believed that foods made them what they were. They desired to put car aside at-times, to refresh their mentality and life-style, feed their eyes with beautiful flowers to make them feel younger. They desired to make aging love and beauty of the Universe. Their desires were – To learn and buy something new daily, treat themselves every-day, become more adventurous, more active in current moment, explore new grounds to change the World, stay social to help the community, meet more people, to turn work into play and participate in soul-winning events. In order words they desired to age well and bless the World. In conclusion, their desires were –
. To stay fit all the time
. To love aging without retirement
. To access mobility wisely
. To eat well and make their homes their castle
. Though, they cannot totally eliminate stress due to body oxidation, they could do a lot to control it
. To transfer stress to feeling confident, resilient and in-control
These desires are a Blessing to man-hood, and a Blessing to longevity
75 years old people and above had their own desires. They were always optimistic as their focus was heavenly. They experienced joy, peace and light
. They enjoyed un-limited wisdom, compassion, forgiveness and patience. All these made them feel alive
and young at heart.
. They had less diabetes, high blood pressure, depression or obesity
. They lived longer, healthier, exhibit 16% lower risk of death from first heart-attack and 30% lower risk of death from heart diseases
. 75 years old and above people concurrently said o.k. to everything though they could be better
. They tricked their brain and smiled that life was always good. They lived every-day like their last day
. They stayed in-touch with friends, loved people, appreciated their bodies and practiced compassion, forgiveness for themselves and others.
. They saved money for rainy days
. Their longevity had its advantages in wisdom, tenacity, endurance and experience
This category of people enjoyed longevity Blessing all along.
My grand-mother died at the age of about 100 years. Her life-style showed her age. She was an easy- going woman, fondly called beauty-queen or happiness queen. She led an extremely active life. She was the leader of the market women in her days. She supervised their activities – Always punctual at their meetings, never missed one social gathering. She was loved and respected by every-body. She was a unique woman, a grand-mother in a million, un-paralleled in beauty for her age and a Blessing to everyone she touched.
To merit longevity Blessings, you need –
To work very hard, command people’s respect, promote endurance
. To love God and other creatures, even your pet
. To eat healthy foods
. To do moderate exercise daily
. To have positive attitude
. To manage any disease or disability well
Longevity is sweet and beautiful. Human desires are a Blessing, for longevity is a tree of life
12 Hope deferred makes the heart sick; but when the desire comes, it is a tree of life.
14 The law of the wise is a fountain of life; to depart from the snares of death
17 LORD, thou hast heard the desire of the humble; thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear.
19 The desire accomplished is sweet to the soul;
But it is abomination to fools to depart from evil.
22 The desire of a man is his kindness, and a poor man is better than a liar.
In the Holy Bible, God created men and the foods needed to live (GENESIS 6:21). He wanted men to cultivate the World to their advantage. Scientists classified foods into categories; carbohydrate, protein, fats and so on. They also, identified the foods good for longevity like vegetarian foods, keto foods. Recent research showed that resveratrol, a substance from red wine fruit-back stimulates longevity. They did more work on longevity than foods. They discovered that the length of Telomere, a strand attached to human chromosome had something to do with the span of longevity. Their interest was to extend life expectancy from 120 years to 130 years. Longevity had been a HOT cake in the World, hence this study showed longevity blessings.
The immune systems of the body contain invisible bodies that fight diseases and all forms of stress. This promotes – Longevity Blessing. Death is a debt to be paid but it can be delayed. Diseases can be repaired naturally with foods and supplements emotionally and scientifically. The body can be hacked to stimulate inner biology, care auto-immune diseases like heart disease which is an instant killer. Stimulation pushes body and mind to be younger at heart. People living in some areas are blessed to live long and happy. In Okinawa area, a 100 year – old fisher-man woke up in the morning to feed his family.
. A 102- year-old woman held her great, great, great grand-daughter’s hand to school
. They were all contented with their lives. They had higher self-rated health and lower levels of stress.
. Their contentment in life earned them longevity
. They desired to live longer because life was sweet
. Longevity nourished self-compassion, acceptance and tolerance
The brain is a longevity blessing. In longevity, some people tend to drop memories, forget words and lose cognitive activities but the brain allows them to keep and strengthen their wisdom not to diminish mental activities.
Experts out-listed Brain Health functions for longevity
. To play lots of game
. To do what they like to do
. To listen to music (brain game activity)
. To read and write more and more
. To get the right amount of exercise
. To meditate, pray and relax daily
. To spend enough time in nature; sight- seeing, smelling beautiful flowers
. To sleep well especially at night
. To eat the right foods with supplements, when necessary
. To calm the amygdala of the brain which controls mindfulness, facing and accepting emotions, self-compassion and understanding
. To see stresses as challenges
. To overcome negative thinking, create positive mental states that help to move forward
. Humans have amazing capacities to adapt to new situations. Men are blessed with all resources needed to live long. Our brain is the foundation of our developments. Studies showed that it is the single biggest driver of our happiness and longevity. An un-happy man cannot pray to live long. Our work is important because it adds riches and days to our years. The Amygdala structure in the brain scans our worries. It is the problem scanning machine. When it finds a problem, it flushes the body full of Adrenaline and stress hormone to send people into fight-or-flight mode. Stress alone degenerates longevity.
Longevity Blessings are more than living longer years. See the following –

1 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer; preserve my life from fear of the enemy
16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever
9 For with thee is the fountain of life; in my light shall we see light
6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life; and his years as many generations
4 Thus will I bless thee while I live; I will lift up my hands in thy name
