It’s a question that everyone wonders: how do I live longer and happier? Fortunately, science has found the answer to this, too. But only for men:) you know, usually women live longer than men. You ask why? Maybe men need a little more help:) the average life expectancy of a man is 79, and women are 82. According to Medical Daily, the reason is purely genetic. While women have two X chromosomes, men don’t have that luxury. They only have one X chromosome. Lifestyle factors also affect how long a person will live. After all, there are 6 ways a man can extend his life span.

Look at beautiful things, think positive

When you say’ beautiful things’, you can think of a woman’s body, a cute animal… A 2012 study examined the effects of positive thinking on men’s health. Positive thinking turned out to have a strong effect on health preferences. In a study of patients with coronary artery disease, 37 percent of patients in the control group increased their physical activity and wrote down their positive thoughts in the morning. Even just doing them helped bring blood pressure down to normal levels.

More sexuality

I think it’s a suggestion every man wants to hear!.. A study found that sexuality can reduce a man’s death rate by up to 50 percent. Sexuality both promotes physical happiness and relieves stress. It also increases the secretion of the happiness hormone serotonin, which makes us feel better. Those who reported more orgasms increased their life expectancy by 3 to 8 years, the study says.


Marriage is not something everyone would agree on. But there is evidence that married men live longer! Depends, of course, on how old they got married… According to the study of more than 127 thousand people, men who marry after the age of 25 live longer. The researchers revealed the positive health impact of learning to relate to and strive for the opposite sex.

No kid can do

Men who marry and have children live longer. A study published in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health found that the life expectancy of 60-year-old men with children increased by as much as 2 years. When the person turns 80, they are expected to live 8 months longer if they have children.

Take responsibility

Even a tiny sense of responsibility can work wonders. In the Journal of personality and Social Psychology, it found that older people who were given a potted flower to look after improved their socialization, alertness and overall function. Maybe that’s why it’s good to have kids!

Dad, make a belly!

Most boys gain a bit of weight after having children, but that’s not as bad as you might think. A book called’ the age of men ‘suggests that men with’ father’s belly ‘ are less likely to have a heart attack or prostate cancer and are more likely to devote time to their children. Writer Richard G. Increased fat levels are also more attractive to women, Bribiescas says. Interesting!
