The study that affirms that premature mortality is reduced with the daily nap (like the Spanish one), walking and meeting with friends

Pamplona / Getting together with friends for more than an hour a day, doing a physical activity equivalent to walking at least half an hour a day or running 2 hours a week, and taking a 30-minute nap are factors that reduce the risk of premature mortality according to a University study of Navarra.

It is about “Monitoring University of Navarra” (SUN), awarded with the prize for the best valued research at the XVI World Congress of Public Health 2020.

The work analyzes ten factors of healthy life and concludes that, at the same age, fulfilling at least seven of them reduces the risk of premature mortality by 60%.

These factors are also never smoking, maintaining a Mediterranean diet, having a body mass index less than or equal to 22, watching television less than 2 hours a day and working at least 40 a week.

The rest are moderate alcohol consumption (5 grams / day maximum for women and 10 for men, which is equivalent to half a small glass of wine and one, respectively) and avoiding binge drinking, never more than 5 drinks in a row.

Researchers from the University of Navarra and the CIBER-OBN of the Carlos III Health Institute, led by Dr. Miguel A. Martínez-González, analyzed these ten factors in 22,094 volunteers.

And they conclude that such everyday and affordable acts as those included in this scale substantially reduce the risk of premature death regardless of other risk factors, such as hypertension, diabetes, or high cholesterol, among others, says Maira Bes-Rastrollo, from the Department of Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the Faculty of Medicine.

For this reason, Liz Ruiz-Estigarribia, first author of the publication, highlights that this scale of factors “can be a very practical and useful tool to promote a healthy lifestyle and reduce premature deaths in the entire population.”

In this sense, she underlines that the results of the study “reflect the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles as pillars of medical care, and promoting health.” (November 11, 2020, EFE / PracticaEspañol)
