7 healthy habits to delay aging, shared by a longevity expert

7 healthy habits to delay aging, shared by a longevity expert

Exercise — not too little and not too much Knowing what Steele knows, here are the habits he’s adopted in his own life: Steele tries to run and cycle for an average of 30 minutes a day. He’s also added strength training to his routine after researching how important it is to keep muscles active. But while cardio and weight lifting are both key, he cautioned against over-training.

“It has made me a lot more aware and a lot more eager to do something about it,” Steele, 35, told TODAY. Until then, people have more control over their aging process than they realize, he said.

“All these sort of ‘boring’ everyday health interventions like exercise, like not smoking, like eating a good diet, they literally slow down the aging process and different diseases, and that’s just so compelling… you’re doing all of your body a huge service by doing this.” Andrew Steele says our aging destiny is in our own hands to a larger extent than people believe with the right diet, exercise routine, lifestyle and a bit of luck.Courtesy Tran Nguyen

There no food or food group that Steele avoids eating. He tries to focus on moderation and variety, but has been aiming to eat less meat, particularly red meat. “Just generally, it looks as though eating a plant-based diet is likely to be healthier, likely to make you live a bit longer, so that’s something I’ve tried to do,” he noted. Eat a varied diet with lots of plants

It’s also important to simply avoid being sedentary. If you’re spending all day sitting, keep your muscles a little bit more active by moving for five minutes every hour or two. “If you literally don’t do any exercise at all, even going for a 10-minute walk every day is going to dramatically improve your health,” Steele said. “The evidence for incredible levels of exercise is quite weak. In fact, if anything it might slightly reduce your lifespan,” he said. “There certainly seems to be a plateau in terms of benefits around 30 minutes a day on average.”
