Longevity has nothing to do with tobacco, alcohol and exercise? Reminder: If you want to live longer

14 Sept 2023

Throughout the ages, humans have been exploring the secrets of longevity. Some people say that diet is a crucial part, while others believe that consistent exercise can improve the body's ability to resist disease, thereby achieving the goal of longevity.

In fact, these are indispensable factors for longevity, but they are not the most important. Scientists conducted a study and found that among all the influencing factors of longevity, interpersonal relationships, which are most easily ignored by people, can determine the length of life.

Links between relationships and longevity

After 20 years of research, a psychology professor once summarized the decisive factors that affect lifespan from the living habits of multiple research subjects. Surprisingly, among the many factors that determine human lifespan listed in the book, Number 1 turned out to be interpersonal relationships.

Research shows that the importance of interpersonal relationships is beyond everyone’s imagination. Its existence and quality are more important than regular exercise, regular physical examinations and nutritional supplements.

The main reason for this result is that in daily life, everyone will be stressed or in a bad mood. If you suppress yourself for a long time, it is easy for bacteria and viruses to take advantage of it. Especially when angry, the stress factors produced by the body are enough to kill the mice.

In addition, medical science now finds that cancer, high blood pressure, irregular menstruation, peptic ulcer and other diseases are all related to psychological depression. On the contrary, if you have good interpersonal relationships, you can feel happier when you reveal your heart.

As a result, the brain will secrete beneficial hormones such as dopamine, which ultimately coordinates and balances the functions of various organs in the body, promotes health, and prolongs life.

In order to have a long-lived physique, it is crucial to improve interpersonal relationships. For specific methods, please refer to the following content.

Treat each other with sincerity and learn to listen

A good interpersonal relationship requires the joint maintenance of both parties, and treating each other with sincerity is the basis for getting along well in interpersonal relationships and establishing trust. Only by doing this well can further development be possible. In addition, in the process of communication, you must listen wholeheartedly to let the other party feel your sincerity.

Help others

Regardless of family ties or friendships, only by helping each other can we go a long way. Therefore, when you find that the other person is in difficulty, you must do your best to help others and lend a helping hand in time to promote feelings and shorten the distance. At the same time, being kind to others and doing good deeds can also help promote the secretion of beneficial hormones.

This is one of the reasons why relevant surveys have found that people who develop the habit of helping others are less likely to suffer from depression and other diseases.

Learn to cooperate and share

No one in the world can live alone. No matter studying or working, everyone must learn to share and cooperate.

And in this process, you should listen more to other people's opinions, share more of your own ideas, and don't be too self-righteous. Only in this way can you better maintain good interpersonal relationships and lay a good foundation for longevity.

All in all, the above content has introduced in detail what factors influence longevity. In fact, it is the interpersonal relationship that has been ignored by everyone.

Therefore, I would like to remind everyone that if you want to achieve longevity, you must not only work hard on diet, rest, exercise, etc., but you must also have good interpersonal relationships.
