This is a question many people have sought to answer. In the Bible (2nd Kings 20:1-11), Kind Hezekiah prayed when he was about to die and God added him 15 years. This is one way to have your life lengthened but even God needs your input if he is to lengthen your life.
Here are 3 ways to help you increase your time on the Land of the Living.
- Live gently!
Live a gentle life- in harmony with others and respectfully. Do not be enticed with the thrills of life that are dangerous to both your emotions and body. We were having a discussion some time back with some of our staff about how, in the recent past, successfully living through the ages of 18-35 has become a toll order because of the dangerous thrills of the youth. As a young person just live gently. Also, the Bible says in Exodus 20:12 ‘Honor your father and mother in the Lord, so that your days in the Land of the Living may be lengthened..’
- Take care of your body
It’s pretty simple; when you take care of your body you will successfully wade off many illnesses that may come your way prematurely. Eat right, exercise, rest and have enough leisure. Avoid overindulging in anything. Do things that you love and avoid stress. Eat a healthy diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, and substitute unhealthy saturated fats and trans fats with healthier monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
- Avoid alcohol and drugs
Smoking has been directly linked to cancer. Alcohol causes liver cirrhosis among other ailments. Doing drugs has been likened by medical personnel to ingesting poison. Avoid them like the plague. Besides destroying your body, drugs and alcohol ruin your relationship with your loved ones and can lead to depression and eventually death.
These are strategies that can help keep your body and mind on the loop but life is beyond human comprehension and sustenance.
