The secret of longevity can be found in Greece

Greece ● 23 March 2017
 

Everybody is in search of the secret of longevity, everyone wants to live longer and happier. The truth is that the secret of longevity is a combination of a variety of things that can lead to longer and better life. All of these things can be found in Greece.

Greece is a European country with developed national health and education system, but these elements are the sine qua non prerequisites of a long life, but they do not constitute the secret of longevity. The secret of longevity can be found in small things that are associated with our mental, spiritual and physical health. Happiness is something easy but at the same time difficult to experience. This summer, maybe your chance to be happy is located in Greece.

Sunshine is an essential element of a long and happy life. The absence of sun can affect your joy and make you feel that life is meaningless. Greece is among the European countries with the most days of sunshine. Under the warm sun, of course with sunscreen protection, you can have the energy and find the motivation you want. Sun exposure is also beneficial for your life span because it gives healthy doses of Vitamin D. Furthermore, studies have shown a decrease in cancer and heart disease for those, who got the most sun.

Food products, which can be found in the Greek cuisine, are also related to longevity. Olive oil, honey, wine, vegetables and fruits lengthen your life expectancy thanks to their antioxidant, anticancer and anti-ageing action. For these reasons, the Mediterranean cuisine is considered to be one of the best diets worldwide.

Swimming is maybe the best activity you can do in Greece. Swimming in the sea water can improve your mood and health. The word "thalassotherapy", which first was used by Hippocrates, describes the healing properties of the sea. Among several benefits, thalassotherapy hydrates your skin, increases your immune system function, improves circulation and promotes your overall well-being.

The attitude to life is also a factor that affects your life expectancy. Stress is fatal, but it is never too late to see your life in a different way. The vacations in Greece will make you understand how life should be. Relaxing, cheerful and without worries. People in Greece have a lot of problems, but they know that worrying about things that can't change is useless. Their hospitality and warm heartedness can teach you the calmness and serenity that are essential parts of the secret of longevity.
