Hard to say, fact or fiction, the stories of the longevity of Tibetan monks. But perhaps the legends are true, and behind the walls of ancient monasteries really are people whose life on earth much longer life of the common man.

According to official statistics, among the living centenarians and centenarians of the past, there are representatives of France, America, Canada, Japan, Denmark and Italy. Moreover, unconfirmed record among centenarians is the Chinese Li Ching-Yuen, who supposedly lived for 267 years. But there is no representative from Tibet. Perhaps the secret lies in their lifestyle and worldview.

The monks of Tibet lead a solitary life, most of the time devoting to prayer, meditation and work. They rarely let anyone in your abode, and tend not to disclose their secrets. We can only guess that it gives to Tibetan monks strength, health and longevity.

One of the secrets of the Tibetan centenarians can be called the correct mode of the day. Truth inspires doctors from childhood – healthy sleep is 8 hours, not devoid of meaning. It was during this time the body has time to fully rest and recover. Moreover, to go to sleep for 2-3 hours before midnight and rise at 6am. Thus, it is possible to normalize your biorhythms and make your body to work more vigorously and effectively.

Another secret lies in avoiding the hustle and bustle. Those who tried to communicate with the Tibetan monks, regardless of the purpose of his visit, noted the terse and unemotional his interlocutors. The correctness of this approach can be confirmed, and modern psychologists. In this case, the well-known expression "all diseases of the nerves" takes on new meaning. It is necessary to remove from his life all the negativity, the anxiety, the vanity, and set yourself that feelings are meaningless and only harm, as a life change. You will be much calmer and physically feel better.

The third secret is constant, but moderate exercise and fresh air. The monks of Tibet are constantly working in the monastery, providing themselves with food. The ordinary person doesn't have to make the grueling daily jog and to spend time in the gym. Such torture is contraindicated for people suffering from cardiovascular diseases, and the elderly. It may be more useful walking and charging several times a day. This will increase the blood flow to the muscles and organs will help to keep the body in good shape.

Another secret can be called moderate food. Food should do as much as it is necessary for the normal functioning of the body. Overeating "stretches" the stomach, leading to obesity, metabolic, cardiovascular and many other diseases. In the daily diet should include foods rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

The spiritual life of the Tibetan monks is beyond the grasp of ordinary people. How many people are able to retire in the mountains, deserts, or voluntarily immured himself in a tiny room without light and fresh air, with only a small gap in the wall, through which is passed a scant bit of food? Such a force is not for everyone, but perhaps it is in such exercises of spirit is the secret of longevity. Although, there are cases of long life, most of which people spent lying on the couch.

All modern "Tibetan technology", "special" exercises, "special" voice vibration and so on – not more than speculation based on scant information about the little-known group of people who are not going to share their secrets. Myths about levitation, teleportation, telekinesis, life of 300 years or more – just a figment of the imagination of the fans of Eastern cultures. None of the group "followers of Tibetan medicine", none available to the General public technique does not have any relation to the real Tibetan monasteries. In addition, such practices have many contraindications, and sometimes even life-threatening.
