Almost everyone wants to live a long life – perhaps to spend more time with their loved ones, travel to more places across the world or achieve new life goals.

There are five habits that, when done together, could add more than a decade to your life expectancy, according to a study released Monday by the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. 

Here’s what the study recommends you do:
• Eat a healthy diet
• Exercise at least 30 minutes or more a day
• Maintain a healthy weight (Specifically, a body mass index between 18.5 and 24.9 
• Don’t drink too much alcohol.
 For women not more than one 5 oz. glass of wine per day, and two glasses for men)
• Don’t smoke (ever)

According to the Harvard researchers, abiding by the rules can add at least a decade more to your life. They stated in their publication – titled, “Impact of healthy lifestyle factors on life expectancies,” – that men who adhere to all five rules live roughly 12 years longer, while women who meet the same criteria live an additional 14 years than those who don’t follow any of them.
The healthy habits that the Harvard researchers pinpointed may sound obvious, but they’re not easy to adopt.There are a few ways to slowly make them a part of your life

 according to the National Institutes of Health. Become aware of your bad habits, whether they’re dipping into the office vending machine at 3 p.m. or staying out late and giving the gym a miss the next morning.
Prof. Hu says that in the U.S., "adherence to healthy lifestyle habits is very low,"  that public policy should do more to create "healthy food, built, and social environments to support and promote healthy diet and lifestyles."
