Daylight-saving time officially starts tomorrow, so don’t forget to change your clocks. The time change can be a pain for some, but personally I’m looking forward to longer days. Today, we have different ways to help you live a healthier, more productive life. Let’s jump in. On the agenda today: Remember those $1 homes in Italy? One couple actually bought two of them. Look out for these red flags the next time you eat at a fancy steak house. The Oscars start an hour earlier tomorrow. We’ve got thoughts on who will win. Stretch your money: What $280 a night gets you in Morocco. But first: The longevity trends that are actually worth your time. If this was forwarded to you, sign up he re. Dispatch Tired or wired: Longevity edition Tired or wired: Longevity edition Since last year, the conversation surrounding longevity has been heating up, sparked in part by biotech founder Bryan Johnson’s multimillion-dollar quest to rewind the clock. But not everyone’s a Bryan Johnson — many of us are strapped for time and cash. I asked Mia de Graaf, Business Insider’s deputy executive editor of health, which anti-aging trends are actually worth it. Do it: Rucking: You don’t even need a gym to cash in on this trend. Rucking, or carrying weight over distance, can improve cardiovascular fitness and strengthen our muscles and bones. Oh, and Silicon Valley loves it. Sleep hygiene: High-quality sleep is imperative to longevity. Recent research suggests that a consistent sleep schedule may be even more important than how many hours you get. Skip it: Cold plunges: You’ve probably seen people on social media dipping into an ice bath. While it’s popular right now, Mia says “we haven’t seen very good evidence that a dip in cold or ice water does anything for your immune system.” “We all want a silver bullet — a pill or drink or habit that will be the elixir of youth,” Mia told me. But she said some of the most effective longevity tricks are actually simple, and well within our control: eating well, sleeping well, and connecting with others. This couple is living your Italian dreams This couple is living your Italian dreams Remember when a few small Italian towns were selling disheveled homes for $1? The deal, meant to help revitalize local communities and economies, drew a lot of interest when it went viral in 2019. One couple, Tam and Gary Holm, was among the people who actually participated in the $1 home deal. They wound up spending about $30,000 for two properties — but say it’s been worth every penny. The $1 home project, five years later . Also read: A 114-year-old Texan is now the oldest living American. Here are 6 lifestyle choices that may have helped her stay healthy for so long. High-end steak house red flags High-end steak house red flags Dining out at a steak house is an indulgent — and pricey — experience. But if you’re going to shell out the money, you want to make sure you’re eating at a good establishment. Two former “Top Chef” contestants, who also own a steak house, shared what differentiates luxury steak houses from more mediocre options. It turns out you can tell a lot about the restaurant based on how sharp their knives are. These are the signs to look out for.
