The researchers suggest a few explanations – higher education usually correlated with higher income levels, which meant the partners probably has access to better food and health care. The researchers also propose that educated women might have set healthier examples for their partners by having time to exercise and plan healthier meals.

Researchers have, of course, also found that daily calorie restriction lengthens life, so this research comes as something of a relief – taking some classes definitely sounds like a more enjoyable way to stretch out a lifetime.

What’s your approach to longevity – are you doing everything you can to tack on extra days?

    I always felt this was true, but you must do it, in a healthy. My name is Joanna I am taking part of a program called LIVE LIFE LIGHTER @ the GREEN SPA & WELLNESS CENTER in Brooklyn, NY.
    What I love about the program is I a getting guidance from a nutritionist as well unconditional support from the fellow member of the program. I can also take yoga and pilates classes in The Green Spa & Wellness Centers movement studio.

    It is still hard though weight loss is not easy even if you see and know the benefits.
