I’m not going to make any friends posting this. Oh, well.
Try this. Sit down on the floor then get back up. According to the study cited below, the number of body parts you use to assist yourself foretells how long you’ll live:
Here’s the study:
Ability To Sit And Rise From The Floor Is Closely Correlated With All-cause Mortality Risk, European Journal of Cardiology, December 2012
Researchers followed 2002 adults for 6.3 years. They asked them to sit and rise. A perfect score was 10 points – 5 points for sitting and 5 points for getting up without touching knees, legs, hands, or arms to the floor. Participants lost 1 point for each body part they leaned on. They lost a half point if they wobbled.
“A composite score below 8 (that is, requiring more than one hand or knee support to sit and rise from the floor in a stable way) were associated with 2–5 fold higher death rates over the 6.3 year study period. By contrast, scores in the range of 8–10 indicated a particularly low risk of death during the tracking period. “Even more relevant,” reported the investigators, “is the fact that a 1-point increment in the [sitting-rising] score was related to a 21% reduction in mortality.”
