How to Live a Longer Life
You don’t want to know how to live a long life, because it’s not what you expect, you know?
Well, according to a new book, you can actually live a longer life if you’re not expecting to live much longer.
And that’s because it doesn’t really matter what life looks like after you pass away, according the book, entitled The Lad: How to Lead a Long Life, which is based on research done by a professor at the University of Iowa.
“We’re all born with a little bit of life ahead of us, and I think we all understand that,” professor Mark Buell told ABC News.
“And we don’t all expect to have it last forever.
It’s not that we don and it’s something we can do.”
The study, published in the journal PLOS ONE, found that while it doesn,t really matter how long you live, if you don’t expect to live long after your death, your life will be more difficult.
“This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because the longer you live and the longer the lifespan, the better,” said Bueell.
“But what we’re finding is the longer life expectancy is related to how you expect to spend your life, and that’s the more you expect that life to last.”
In the study, the authors found that people who expect to die within five years of the time they die had the greatest chances of living a longer, healthier life than those who expect their life to be shorter than five years.
In a study published in Science, scientists found that a person’s chance of living to 80, or about the age of 90, after death had been cut in half after they died, compared to people who lived a longer average life.
“Our data suggests that our expectations about how long our lives should last could play a role in how long people can expect to stay alive after death,” said lead author Dr. Joanna Schuster, a research fellow in health systems science at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
“People often say, ‘I can’t imagine being 70, and my life expectancy’s about 50,'” said Schuster.
“It’s not easy, but it’s achievable.”
The authors of the study noted that if you expected to live another 30 years, your average life expectancy would be about the same.
They also noted that the longer a person lived, the more likely they were to be diagnosed with some type of chronic illness.
“There is some evidence that people living longer have worse health,” said Schusters.
“That’s because they have less capacity to deal with stress, which in turn leads to higher levels of chronic disease.
People live longer, they have more stress and less capacity for adaptation to new situations.”
The researchers say people who live longer also tend to have lower levels of depression and anxiety, as well as lower levels for diabetes and high blood pressure.
The study also found that the more people expected to die, the less likely they are to die.
The researchers found that in general, people expect to be dead by the time the person who died is in their 90s, with those expected to be in their 80s and later.
The study found that even among people who had expected to have lived at least a year longer, the death was significantly more likely to be a suicide.
The findings are based on a meta-analysis of studies published between 2009 and 2015, and show that the death rate from heart disease in the US has increased by more than a quarter since the late 1990s.
It’s possible that the reason people live longer is because they don’t anticipate being diagnosed with chronic diseases, Schuster said.
But the authors say this study shows that life expectancy has a strong correlation with life expectancy, so if you think you’re living longer than you actually are, it’s best to take steps to lower the chances of death.
