There are many parameters that can determine your length of life. However based on five researches, I will give you three simple techniques or a test that can be done at home to determine your total life span or how long you will live…
According to a 13 years long study published in 2014, in the British Medical Journal, it studied 1,411 women and 1,355 men, in 1999 , when they were 53 years old, and then reexamined them to see who were still alive in 2012 i.e. 13 years later.
The following tests were administered:
Being able to stand up and sit down back in the chair many times in a single minute, having a strong grip and standing on one leg with your eyes closed for 10 seconds or longer.
The researcher of this test clearly held the results to determine longevity of the subjects.
The subjects at age 53 who performed well in these tests were vibrant and healthy at age 66.
Furthermore, according to University of London, people who performed well during these tests are five times more likely to live long to be 66 years old, than the ones who couldn’t complete the test or ill-performed.
Conclusively, the ones who performed poorly were hit by higher death rates.
Officially these tests are known as:
• The balance test: you need to stand on one leg with eyes closed for 10 seconds or more.
• The grip test: your power to apply pressure of around 54.5kg
• The chair test: you need to stand up and down in a chair for a minute, 39 times if you are a male and 36 times if you are a female.
