Finally, an answer to Queen’s query 英会話・英語 アミック
Scientists have identified five communities where the citizens regularly live to be over ninety years old. The people of Okinawa, Japan, Sardinia, Italy, Nicoya, Costa Rica, Icaria, Greece, and Loma Linda, California, USA are known to live longer lives than anywhere else in the world. Not only are they living longer, but they are also known to live healthier lives free of dementia or other general old-age illnesses.
What do these people do to live longer, healthier lives? It turns out they aren’t doing anything exceptional. Data has shown that these communities are more likely to eat a plant-based diet, do moderate exercise, and spend a lot of time with their loved ones. This means that these communities of elderly people are living semi-vegetarian lifestyles with diets rich in legumes. They most likely aren’t doing the latest HIIT workout, but probably going for regular walks and taking the stairs instead of the elevator. They are also spending time with their community and socializing. The families living in these communities are also usually multigenerational with children and elderly people living together. Engaging with others has been proven to increase happiness in people and to give life a “sense of purpose”.
It seems like living a long, healthy life is easier than we initially thought!
