1. Get Up--Sitting less than three hours a day adds two years to your life. Other research found sitting leads to about 173,000 cases of cancer a year. Sitting also raises the risk for diabetes and obesity. If you have to sit, consider how to sit healthy and take short and frequent breaks to walk around.

2. Drink Coffee--Coffee can have negative side effects for some people, but it's generally not harmful. A  new report suggests drinking up to six cups a day can help you live longer.

3. Add Fiber--Anyone still eating gummy white bread or white rice is raising the odds of a shorter life. Whole wheat bread and other foods naturally high in fiber like fruits, vegetables and rice, lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, infectious and respiratory diseases, obesity and even some cancers.

4. Cut the Fat--But cut the right fat. The human body needs fats to function, but the problem is saturated fats — the fats from meat and other animal products. Polyunsaturated fats from nuts, avocados and other vegetables are a basic part of the Mediterranean diet, which is also low in meats. Saturated fats also lower sperm count.

5. Take a Hike!--Walking is good for you. A study found that elderly people who walked a quarter-mile had higher odds of being alive six years later. People who walk faster, regardless of age or sex, also live longer than others.
