December 18th, 2012 1 Comment

An interesting new study from England’s University College of London shows 4 simple ways for baby boomers to age in a healthier way. The study followed healthy adults aged 35-55 from 1985 to 1988 and did a follow-up study in 2008-2009, when all participants were over the age of 60. The study showed 4 main healthy habits which stood out in participants:

  • Not participating in smoking
  • Consuming alcohol in moderation
  • Maintaining consistent physical activity (at least 2.5 hours a week of moderate activity or 1 or more hours of intense activity)
  • Daily consumption of fruits and vegetables

How do you fare with these healthy habits? It’s not too late to change with these easy habits! Visit Huff Post to read more http://huff.to/ZKQIJE.
