7 Sociable Ways to Increase Your Life-span

1. Be gentle and kind :
Being nice to others will enhance your sense of well-being. Kindness shown to humans and other living beings increases the feel good factor and ups your life expectancy.

2. Appreciate marriage :
Invest in being married as it is an important factor in avoiding risky behavior related to sex outside of marriage. But the good effects of staying married are nullified by a divorce or remarriage.

3. Enjoy your love life :
Those who have healthy sex two times a week reduce age related erectile dysfunction by a third and upping it to three times a week cuts your risk by half.

4. Widen your friends circle :
There is a direct relation between the number of friends you have and the chances of developing dementia. Those who had three or more friends reduced the possibility of suffering from dementia by 26 %.

5. Avoid being single :
Single men are more at risk of lethal strokes than those in a happy relationship. This may be due to the fact that, being a loner entails bearing the burden of life alone, whereas in a marriage relationship the stress is being shared among the family members.

6. The offspring magic number :
It has been found that couples who had two children, either boy or girl, live longer than those who were content with one child or had three or more offspring.

7. Say Thank You :
Having a sense of gratitude adds more than a couple of years to your life-span. Saying thank you is a form of giving to others, though nothing in material form passes from you. It gives the receiver and the giver a sense of pleasure that promotes mental health.
