Los Gatos Personal Trainers' Surprising Tip to Help You Live Longer

Los Gatos Personal Trainers' Surprising Tip to Help You Live Longer

 

Our Los Gatos personal trainers have a weird question for you …

 

When was the last time you got together in-person or even virtually with friends or family and had some fun?! We know with this pandemic, it's likely been WAY too long!

 

Our Los Gatos personal trainers wanted to ask because there’s important research we have been reading that shows that social time can help you live longer.

 

First, a little background. Our Los Gatos personal trainers know that you know stress isn’t good for you, right? That includes feeling lonely and disconnected. Something we've all been feeling this past year!

 

Well, research shows that chronic stress impacts you right down to the cellular level, making you more susceptible to dangerous chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and even some types of cancer.

 

That’s because stress seems to contribute to shortening the “caps” on the ends of your DNA (called telomeres), which play a major role in the aging process. 

 

Longer telomeres = longevity!

 

Scientists say you can start protecting your telomeres right now by living a healthy lifestyle by focusing on eating plant-based foods and exercising regularly. 

 

Here’s the part that our Los Gatos personal trainers think is so cool...

 

Your social connections also play a major role! Especially positive relationships that help you feel supported. They are also associated with longer telomeres!

 

Is it time to get together for a game night with your besties? 

 

If this is an area you struggle with because you don’t have any nearby social connections or you're trying to stay socially distanced, here are some ideas:


  • Join a walking or hiking group
  • Join a local book club in your community that meets online
  • Find a fitness studio/group that caters to people like you (same age, interests, etc.), and build a new network based on shared goals- Looking for a group? Join our Thrive in 35 Program that starts on June 13th! You'll make some amazing connections in our community while working towards your health/wellness goals! Spots are limited so click here to sign-up today!
  • Take a class (in person if at all possible) to learn a new hobby or skill that you’ve been wanting to try.

 

On top of being a great stress-busting outlet for you, it might also help improve your long-term health!
