“Even after age 75 lifestyle behaviours such as not smoking and physical activity are associated with longer survival,” the study authors write. “A low risk profile can add five years to women’s lives and six years to men’s. These associations, although attenuated, were also present among the oldest old (≥85 years) and in people with chronic conditions.”…”Our results suggest that encouraging favourable lifestyle behaviours even at advanced ages may enhance life expectancy, probably by reducing morbidity,” the authors conclude.

Hypnotherapy can provide help and support in order to achieve the desired changes in your life routines. Not only by helping you integrate those new desired behaviours, but also helping you to integrate new ways of thinking (which you have researched, analised, chosen and structured yourself into your own language) into your subconscious mind. So that you may not only achieve doing the exercise or stopping smoking, but actually be convinced that what you are doing is good for you and have fun doing it, noticing the results and benefits of those changes and enjoy your new life, your new “you”. It is an empowering feeling and it is fun.
