Barefoot Ted revealed his simple recipe for longevity.
Damian: What for you would be the three, lifestyle or health or fitness things you could do that would have the greatest impact on your health, wellness and longevity?
Barefoot Ted: Ok this is easy. Believe it or not, the first one is one I think you'll find to be about as simple as one as you can hope for.
Learn how to to spend more time, including when you're sleeping, breathing through your nose with your mouth shut. Give that a look, give that a little look. To get you inspired about that topic, go read a book in the 1890's called "Shut Your Mouth," written by a guy who went and painted every Native American tribe in North America.
He became very observant of all of them and their culture and their ways, and this one interesting behavior was one that was basically apart of all of them. Training children and people to keep their mouth shut, and it's just now recently, breathing, you know breathing is becoming popular as a topic. And there's reasons for it, and there's new data coming out covering all kinds of interesting things. Learn how to breathe through your nose, thats number 1.
Number 2, take your shoes off more often, as often as possible, and find that you feel better when you do. And finally number 3, every day combine the first 2 ideas, breathing through your nose and standing with bare feet, outside in fresh air with sunlight shining on your face.
If you do those 3 things everyday, I guarantee you, 100%, you are going to feel better than you did than when you didn't do those 3 things. There you go, that's Barefoot Ted's 3 things in a nutshell.
