Nobel's Great Discovery: It is not eating and exercising that determine one's life span, but …
Health and longevity have always been the pursuit and research direction of people.
Elizabeth, winner of Nobel Prize in Physiology, and others summed up the way of longevity, which once attracted people's attention, that is, to live for 100 years, reasonable diet accounts for 25%, others account for 25%, and psychological balance accounts for 50%.
How do you understand the "psychological balance", which accounts for half of the reasons for longevity? How can we do it?
"Stress hormones" can damage the body
Psychological research has found that when a person is furious, the body produces enough stress hormones to kill mice. Therefore, "stress hormone" is also called "toxic hormone".
Huangdi Neijing once said: "All diseases are born of qi. Anger leads to qi, happiness leads to qi slowness, sadness leads to qi stagnation, shock leads to qi chaos, and labor leads to qi consumption..." Therefore, the "heart" is treated first.
Modern medical discovery: Cancer, arteriosclerosis, hypertension, peptic ulcer, irregular menstruation, etc. 65%-90% of human diseases are related to psychological depression. Therefore, this kind of disease is called psychosomatic disease.
If people are restless, angry and nervous all day long, which keeps the level of stress hormones high for a long time, the immune system of the human body will be suppressed and destroyed, and the cardiovascular system will become particularly vulnerable due to long-term overwork.
When people are happy, the brain secretes "beneficial hormones" such as dopamine. Beneficial sex hormones relax people's mood and produce pleasant sensation. This kind of good state, which is very comfortable both physically and mentally, can coordinate and balance various functions of the human body and promote health.
So, what should we do in our life to secrete more happy "beneficial sex hormones" and reduce "stress hormones"?
Set a goal and be diligent in thinking
New research shows that "a strong sense of purpose" is good for health. Because whether there is pursuit in life determines a person's mentality and then determines his physiological condition.
The cerebral vessels of people who are diligent in thinking are in a stretched state. Therefore, regular use of the brain can promote the metabolism of the brain and delay aging.
After retirement, middle-aged and old friends can go to senior universities to learn calligraphy, dancing, singing, drawing and so on, so as to keep their brains active.
Helping others has therapeutic effect
Researchers found that giving others "material" help can reduce the death rate by 42%; Giving spiritual support to others can reduce the death rate by 30%.
Because you are kind to others and often do good deeds, you will have an indescribable sense of happiness and pride in your heart, thus reducing the level of stress hormones and promoting the secretion of "beneficial hormones".
Psychiatric epidemiologists even say that forming the habit of helping others is a good way to prevent and treat depression.
Family harmony is the secret of longevity
Two psychology professors in the United States have found that they have accumulated 20 years of research: Among the decisive factors affecting life span, the first one is "interpersonal relationship". They He said that interpersonal relationships may be more important than fruits and vegetables, regular exercise and regular physical examination.
Interpersonal relationships include not only relationships with friends, but also relationships with family members. Therefore, family harmony and happiness with friends are one of the secrets of longevity!
If you give kindness, you will get kindness
When we smile at others, others will greet us with a smile. Whether you are with friends or chatting with old classmates on WeChat, remember to be Keep smiling and be kind.
This friendliness includes: praise, humor, smile, respect, comity, easygoing, tolerance, forgiveness, understanding, sympathy, loyalty, listening, etc. Only in this way can we reap the kindness of others and feel better!
"Unhappy mood can lead to liver disease."
Some people have done such experiments: after the liver of an animal is removed, the portal vein, which should have entered the liver, is directly communicated with the abdominal artery, the heart immediately swells and venous blood deposits, and the animal dies soon, which shows how important the liver is in regulating blood circulation.
When you are in a bad mood and angry and depressed, it will also affect the drainage of the liver, resulting in qi stagnation and blood accumulation in the liver and liver meridians.
"If you are not angry, you will not get sick."
Emotion is human instinct, but in a highly competitive living environment, people's mental pressure will naturally increase, so various negative emotions will often affect people's health.
Professor Hao Wanshan said: "You are bullish on many people, complain everywhere, and look at nothing pleasing to the eye. How is the country like this, how is the society like this, and how is the unit like this. When you get home, you complain. How does your family look like this? Complaining is a negative emotion."
Professor Hao Wanshan also said: "At present, according to the statistics of the World Health Organization, more than 90% of diseases are related to emotions. Hey, as long as we control our emotions, we can not get sick, not get seriously ill, get sick less, and get sick later."
"The heart should be quiet and the body should move."
Nourishing the heart, meditating, cultivating the heart, and regulating consciousness and emotion are common sense of keeping in good health in themselves. Unfortunately, they are not taken seriously by everyone, so there will be "incurable stomach diseases" and "pharyngitis accompanying life".
Peace of mind leads to peace of mind, peace of mind leads to health, peace of mind leads to fewer diseases. Kinetic energy generates Yang, and Yang Qi is vigorous and accessible, so Qi and blood are smooth, muscles are plump, and bones and muscles are strong.
The heart should be quiet, the body should move, and the nutrition should be balanced and not excessive. These are the three magic weapons advocated by health preservers of various sects in the past dynasties.
In fact, it is not only eating and exercising that determine the length of one's life, but also a happy mood and a positive attitude. Let's tell our friends this great discovery quickly. I wish you all health, happiness and a long life.
