For better or worse – existent lifestyle often grows around social media networks and virtual relationships. According to the latest studies of British researchers - so-called “friends” in social media might be influencing all the living habits... Moreover, this lifestyle may apply to both - negative and positive cases. [1] For example, those who believe that their social media friends have five daily portions of fruits and vegetables, eat one extra portion, in turn. However - they also have an extra portion of unhealthy food for every three portions of their online friends.

Such habits can be more typical for teenagers and those in schools. Adults have less addiction to virtual friends or publicities’ lifestyles. Moreover, one of the cornerstones for quality life includes good, mutually enjoyable and rewarding relationships with close people and friends. They are equally important to a healthy eating lifestyle and regular exercises. There is no such need to have own DNA sequenced yet to determine the genetics. The reason is that any analysis will never change the list of actions for having the healthiest lifestyle now. Every person has enough power for changing numerous things, which influence both health and life length. The following suggestions will help in pursuing the longest and healthiest lifestyle possible.
