Caloric restriction: Various experiments on humans and animals have shown that caloric restriction increases the lifespan. Dietary restriction is particularly effective when you star following it much before the onset of aging.
Methionine-Restricted Diets: It is a confirmed method for extending lifespan in mammals. Methionine is abundantly present in animal proteins, eggs, fish especially cod, red meat, seaweed , pork , poultry, sesame seed and certain nuts.
Regular exercise: It strengthens bones, muscles, organs and joints. Without adequate exercise, our body degenerates. As long as we have a body, it needs to be regularly worked on and exercised. A certain amount of physical work is good for the mind as it releases built up tensions, maintaining a harmonious link with body and environment, and giving a break to the overworked mind.
Practice meditation and yoga regularly: Regular meditation and yoga tune the body and mind so that they waste much less energy. This means your body and mind will last longer because the allotted amount of energy will carry you further. It is said by some that each person has a fixed number of breaths to their life. When you slow down the breathing during yogic practices, you extend the duration of your life.
