Health Tip / Be Lazy

Be Lazy, Live Longer 

Munich — A German health researcher is now prescribing aimless sloth as the antidote to professional stress and the secret to a long life. 

“People who would rather laze in a hammock instead of running a marathon or who take a midday nap instead of playing squash have a better chance of living into old age,” said Peter Axt, co-author of On the Joy of Laziness

Moderate exercise like walking, at least if taken at leisure and not snatched hectically from the working day, and avoiding overeating were nonetheless healthy. But overdoing it was not. 

“Research shows that people who run long distances into their 50s are using up energy that they need for other purposes,” said Mr. Axt. — Reuters
