1. Eat what is necessary

Try to make a diet that accelerates your metabolism. A study carried out in Japan showed that the longest-lived people in that country stop eating when they feel 80% full. Another way to speed up metabolism could be by eating foods that stimulate this change, such as green tea.

2. Avoid microwave

Various studies carried out since the beginning of 2000, showed that microwaved food can lose up to 98% of its main nutrients.
In the event that you have no other option than to use a microwave, do not eat the food heated there until after 60 seconds, since that is an approximate time for the effect of the microwave waves to pass.

3. Socialize

Loneliness, in addition to causing depression, increases the risk of heart disease in the elderly, especially if they are widowed or have lost a close relative.

4. Have a healthy diet

Eat food your body needs and provide it with the nutrients, vitamins and fiber it needs to stay active and healthy. So, go to a nutritionist to find out what food you need.
It is very important when you consider your intake of fats, salt and sugar, and you should watch your portion sizes. If you eat more sugars and solid fats, you risk becoming overweight. To minimize this risk, drink more water in place of sweet beverages. Try as much as possible to include fruits and vegetables in your diet. Instead of using solid fats for cooking, you may also want to consider using healthier oils.

5. Exercise

Take advantage of at least 30 minutes of your day to take a few walks and thus avoid the risk of suffering from heart disease. It is important that your body performs exercises that involve movement and calorie burning every day.
You need regular exercise to stay in good shape. Make exercise a habit. Make some physical activity as a part of your daily routine. Avoid sitting in front of the TV or computer for so many hours. Take a few minutes stretch or an activity break from time to time. Staying physically active can help you to sleep well, stay mobile, maintain strong bones, muscles and helps you to achieve a healthy weight.
It lowers the risk of suffering from depression and premature death. Not staying physically active can increase the risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, developing high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and even suffering a stroke.

6. Sleep at your hours

Sleeping helps your body maintain physical and mental health, as well as regulate and heal the cells of our body. So instead of adding a few hours to your day while avoiding sleep, add a few years of quality sleeping the hours you need. 
Getting enough sleep can protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. Furthermore, having enough sleep is a good habit to keep up, because sleep enables the body to repair and be fit and ready for another day. Getting adequate rest may also help prevent excess weight gain, depression, tragic accidents, heart disease, and increased illness duration.
The proper rest should not be considered optional. It is vital for our body and brain to function well. It helps us in learning and retention of new information.

The fact that you have faults and make mistakes shows that you are human being, not that you are a failure. Accept things as they come, and try to make improvement from time to time. 
Avoid comparisons and ultimately be realistic. Instead of focusing on your failures, focus more about your winnings. Praise yourself from time to time and celebrate your achievements. Following these suggestions won’t only stop negative feelings but will also boost your self-esteem. 

8. Examine Your Friendship

A friend’s influence can make you set your goals and work towards achieving them. A good friend will always encourage and motivate you to achieve your goals in life.

9. Don’t Personalized What People Say

When someone says something offensive, or treats you in a not too nice way, unless you did something to merit a reaction, chances are the offensive words say more about the person than it does about you. Do not be discouraged by others, don’t let them get the better of you by letting you do things that you will later regret.
Keep your head straight, build on your progress and do not let people bring you down. Not only because you should stay focused and because what they said likely isn’t true or doesn’t matter, but because most of all it wasn’t really about you in the first place.

The more you appreciate the little joys of life, the happier you’ll be. Appreciation is like a good meal. It is more enjoyable when shared. When we feel appreciated, we are happy.
Conclusively, when we express our gratitude, we make others happy. The person who receives our gratitude knows that his efforts to help us, or to give us something we need. It will drastically improve our life.
