Is it true that people who live in tropical climates tend to live longer, happier lives? If certain scientific studies are to be believed, it seems it’s true; moving to Panama and purchasing real estate in the delightful area of the Pacific Coast Beaches might just be the key to the fountain of youth!
A Japanese censor group recently did a survey when they noticed certain patterns throughout the world regarding lifespans and what affect them. Weather, culture, diet, physical and mental health were used as factors that determine the fact that people who live in warmer, tropical climates tend to live longer than those who live in more template climates.
Like in Okinawa, Japan, the place where the study originated, countries like Panama where the weather is tropical give people certain conditions that result in longer lives. Those who live in areas full of lush, green rainforests and nature benefit even more.
“What I notice more strongly,” Junji Takano says about his elders in Okinawa, “is that their lives are so simple and looks somewhat primitive, but they live in the modern world with “wisdom”. What do they mean? Most of them live in the remote areas or country sides, and worked as farmers, surrounded by trees, rivers, mountains, and farms. But their living condition was modern with electricity.”
Like in Okinawa, the people who live in Panama seems to live richer, fuller lives. The argument is that a country’s climate affects people’s mood in dramatic ways, and those who live in places where the weather is more consistent live to be 100 years old or more.
Diets also factor in, but there doesn’t seem to be a fixed diet that will help you live longer. “Their daily diets usually include kelp in miso soup (Japanese fermented soy bean paste), tofu (made from coagulated soybean extract), honey, and pickles,” Junji explains from the Okinawa survey; “There are no prohibited foods to eat, which means they eat anything they like. Their lives seem to be just the same or common.”
Other particular traits that attribute to healthier living are laughing, a good sense of humor and getting rid of anxiety by exercising patience, tolerance and diminishing reliance in strict patterns and schedules. Panama is full of warm, fun-loving people and Panama is no exception.
Moving to Panama is not the be-all, end-all to the “fountain of youth”, but it possesses all the conditions you need to live a better, longer life. Visit Panama today and see for yourself!
