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
