Eating right and exercising are the two main aspects of physical health that people focus on when it comes to getting healthy. And it’s probably true that someone who sticks to a plant-based diet plus exercises daily would live longer than someone who lives off of processed foods and is mostly sedentary.

Physical health is foundational, but if you want to live a longer and healthier life, don’t underestimate the importance of mental and emotional health as well. After all, most people can admit to having experienced mental states like stress, anxiety, depression, loneliness and even heartbreak negatively affecting their motivation to keep hitting the gym regularly or their desire to avoid bingeing on ice cream every night.

4. Feeling sexy.
