Everyone wants to live a long life so that they can spend time doing what they love doing and enjoy quality time with loved ones for many more years, don’t they? However, living longer doesn’t necessarily mean that you will age gracefully, especially in times when lifestyle diseases are on the rise. Due to greater life expectancies and shrinking birth rates, the population of people over 65 has increased faster than that of other age groups. Ever wondered why, despite this, more years are being spent in poor health?

The internal and visible manifestations of aging can be managed by focusing on holistic wellness. That’s the reason why longevity retreats today are shifting the emphasis to long-term health and vitality than fighting the natural aging process.

Miracle treatments, surgical facelifts, and magic creams have become the latest fad, from the moment the first frown line appears. While many people still place a high value on looking younger and have legitimate concerns about it, we at YO1 Longevity and Health Resorts believe in shifting the emphasis from battling aging to delaying the aging process and extending longevity through effective wellness programs that are curated as per your health goals and concerns

6 tips to ensure health and longevity

Do you know that a myriad of factors can have an impact on one's health and longevity? While it's true that a considerable portion of health and wellness is determined by heredity and environmental factors, many people tend to forget that our way of life also plays a big role. Long-term health and longevity can be affected by a variety of lifestyle factors, including sleep, food, physical activity levels, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages as well as smoking.

Those who want to live a long life, practice their seasonal wholefood diets and modest activity habits. At YO1, you get an opportunity to follow a healthy, nutritious diet while you engage in a variety of fun activities and opt for curated wellness programs, specifically for weight management, detox programs, pain management, restorative packages, and much more.

1. Your soul purpose

Have you ever spent time trying to find your purpose in life? It might seem challenging but it’s not impossible. Your motivation for waking up each morning is Ikigai. It has been demonstrated that knowing your purpose can significantly lengthen your life and increase your level of fulfilment. Having faith and engaging in spiritual practices generally lengthens life. People who have lived for 100 years or older have taken a spiritual path of some kind. Being mindful and practicing Yoga can have a long-term impact on your health. At YO1, we conduct Yoga and Meditation sessions that are aimed at helping guests connect back to their inner selves.

2. Staying connected

Many people have discovered that maintaining healthy connections and meeting new people leads to new experiences that ultimately help in leading a happy and healthy life. The world's longest-living individuals have good social networks and close friendships. The ones who live a long life are seen spending a lot of time in-person with others, eating meals together, and having open conversations. Another important aspect is a sense of belonging to a group of people who encourage you to lead healthy lives. Most longevity experts belong to groups that value straightforward healthy living. Finding your tribe and being a member of social communities that you connect with and find inspiring is a lovely way to promote your health and longevity. Studies have shown that adding new pals to your network can increase your happiness by 15 %.

3. Goodbye stress, and hello sleep

Most longevity experts also have two other important characteristics: these societies prioritize sleep as well as stress management. People often turn to nature and easy mindfulness practices like meditation and breathing exercises to reduce stress. Their life includes putting sleep first and paying attention to the seasons and natural cycles. A consistent sleep habit is created by rising to the sun and going to bed sooner. 7.5 hours of sleep each night is normal for them. According to studies, persons who sleep more than 6 hours a night have a stronger immune system, experience less stress, and are up to 30% more productive and happier. Are you looking for a perfect stress-buster? At YO1, we offer stress and anxiety management programs that are tailored to relieve your worries and improve your sleep patterns.

4. Find the child within you

When was the last time you laughed and giggled like a child? We all know that play also stimulates laughter, which is the finest cure for all ailments. Play awakens a wonderful force inside of us. We rarely give ourselves time to indulge in play as we get older. Interacting with children, grandchildren, or being in any way near youngsters can help reignite the spark within us. A fundamental aspect of human nature is Play. We are innately curious, playful, and intuitive beings. As we grow older, so much of this is left behind. When we play, just like when we travel, we use our bodies to move around and engage with our surroundings, and we use our minds to solve problems, be imaginative, and think outside the box. And these are but a few of the advantages!

5. Detox for longevity:

Have you taken a wellness break lately to completely detox? If not, the YO1 Longevity Resort provide an ideal atmosphere to restore your health and promote longevity. YO1's Detox Program prioritizes diet, physical activity, meditation, yoga, and other holistic approaches to wellness. By engaging in these curated therapies and activities, you can reduce your risk of chronic health issues, better your overall health, and slow down the aging process.

6. Appreciate the little things

The term "gratitude" may be popular in the health community, but for good cause. Multiple health advantages result from the straightforward act of showing gratitude. Gratitude enhances our relationships, physical health and happiness, improves empathy and compassion, improves self-esteem, increases mental strength, makes us more upbeat and resilient, increases productivity, and aids in the achievement of our goals. It also reduces stress, frustration, depression, and anxiety. Our happiness and lifespan can be greatly increased by the practice of setting aside some time each day to think about or write down the things in life for which we are grateful. According to studies, just five minutes a day can result in a more than 10% improvement in long-term well-being.

Every aspect of the retreat experience at YO1 naturally promotes holistic health, more happiness, greater fulfillment, and greater longevity, regardless of where you are on your wellness journey. Your inner child will be awakened, and the essential joy that is built into life will be brought to your attention through our revitalizing therapies and Long-Term Health Plans.

What is Ayurveda?

Practiced by the great sages of ancient India, Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old system of holistic medicine defined as Knowledge of Life (Ayu meaning life and Veda meaning knowledge). It describes the healthy and unhealthy state of life (mind and body) and describes the methods of balancing unhealthy conditions. Ayurveda focuses on the wellness of every person as a whole.
