Shake your Body!
Every day find new ways to move your body. Use the stairs rather than

an escalator or elevator. Walk your dog (or a neighbours' dog if you

don't have one!) , chase your kids, play ball with friends, mow the

lawn. Anything that moves your limbs is not only a fitness tool, it's

a stress buster. Think 'move' in small increments of time. It doesn't

have to be an hour in the gym or a 45-minute cardiovascular class or

body pump or kickboxing. Move more and feel better!
Cut the Fat
Don't eat the obvious fat in your diet such as fried foods, burgers

and other fatty meats. Eat dairy products like cheese, cottage cheese,

milk and cream low fat versions. Nuts and sandwich meats, mayonnaise,

margarine, butter and sauces should be eaten in limited amounts and

even then in their low fat verions. Most are available in lower fat

Reduce Stress
Stress busters come in many forms. Some techniques recommended by

experts are to think positive thoughts. Spend 30 minutes a day doing

something you like. (i.e., go back to number one above!, exercise is a

great stress reducer, Soak in a hot tub; walk on the beach or in a

park; read a good book; visit a friend; play with your dog; listen to

soothing music; watch a funny movie. Get a massage, a facial or a

haircut. Meditate. Count to ten before losing your temper or getting

aggravated. Avoid difficult people when possible. Stop Smoking
All the experts agree on this one. Ever since 1960 when it was

announced that smoking was harmful to your health, people have been

reducing their use of tobacco products. Just recently, we've seen a

surge in smoking in adolescents and teens. Warn your children of the

false romance or 'tough guy' image of smokers. Find ways to quit

smoking hypnosis, support groups and even prescription medicine such

as Zyban is available to help you.
Reduce your exposure to Pollution
Not everyone can live in a smog-free environment, but we can all avoid

smoke-filled rooms, high traffic areas, breathing in highway fumes and

exercising near busy thoroughfares. Exercise outside when the smog

rating is low. Exercise indoors in air conditioning where air quality

is good. Plant lots of shrubbery in your yard. It's a good pollution

deterrent. If you ride a bicycle in traffic, where a small pollution

mask over your mouth and nose.
Clunk Click every Trip
Statistics show that the wearing of seat belts add to longevity and

help alleviate potential injuries in car crashes.
Floss Your Teeth
Harvard Medical School studied longevity and found one of the most

important contributing factors was daily flossing! Flossing and

brushing your teeth daily can make your RealAge as much as 6.4 years

younger. These studies make a direct connection between longevity and

teeth flossing. Nobody knows exactly why. Perhaps it's because people

who floss tend to be more health conscious than people who don't?
Maintain a Positive Mental Outlook
There's a definitive connection between living well and healthily and

having a cheerful outlook on life. Yes, keep on smiling and laughing!
Pick Your Parents Well !
The link between genetics and health is a powerful one. You can't pick

your parents, but just because one or both of your parents died young

in ill health doesn't mean you can't counteract the genetic pool

handed you. So follow the first 9 tips above. for more details visit:
