Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including a well-rounded diet is crucial to prolonging your lifespan.
You could also boost your lifespan by doing regular exercise. It’s the “miracle cure” we’ve all been waiting for, according to the NHS.
Making some small diet or lifestyle changes could help to increase your life expectancy and avoid an early death.
One of the best ways to lower your chances of an early death is to have a cup of tea or coffee every day, it’s been claimed.

“Moderate consumption of tea and coffee may benefit healthy ageing and longevity,” said medical website Healthline.
“Just remember that too much caffeine can also lead to anxiety and insomnia, so you may want to curb your intake to the recommended limit of 400mg per day — around four cups of coffee.
“It’s also worth noting that it generally takes six hours for caffeine’s effects to subside.
“Therefore, if you have trouble getting enough high-quality sleep, you may want to shift your intake to earlier in the day.”
Meanwhile, you could also increase your lifespan by regularly eating avocado, it’s been claimed.
The fruit helps the body to get rid of ‘bad’ cholesterol, while boosting the amount of ‘good’ cholesterol.
Avocados also contain lutein, which has a beneficial impact on prostate health, they added.
Everyone should consider eating half of an avocado three to four times a week.
