4 Secrets to Good Health

From an article titled ”Four Secrets to Boost Your Health” from Remake America, published on May 11, 2012

Good health is invaluable, but with the pressures of work and family, who has the time to maintain it? ABC News Chief Health and Medical Editor Dr. Richard Besser offers some quick and easy steps to self-improvement.

1. Eat a healthy diet: Cutting down on sweets and sugary drinks like soda could take 10 pounds off your waistline each year. Healthy diets have also been linked to reducing the risk of diabetes, heart disease and certain forms of cancer. Eating a healthier diet is emotionally and mentally stabilizing as well.

2. Exercise for at least 15 minutes a day: Finding time to exercise is hard, but carving out a 15-minute slice daily will create a noticeable boost in energy. Take a walking break with co-workers or climb some stairs — a little goes a long way.

3. Get plenty of sleep: Sleep improves mental processes, helps the body repair itself and jump-starts creativity. A good night's rest has also been shown to curb weight gain. I would include the occasional power nap. Sit in your favorite chair with a good book and magazine and doze off for 45 minutes or so. This does wonders for your mental health.

4. Take time to laugh: Laughing releases neurotransmitters called endorphins that produce feelings of well-being. Finding time for the things that make you laugh improves longevity and overall health. All good advice, especially to laugh.....even at yourself! However, I believe that taking quality nutritional supplements and avoiding the everyday toxins are essential to your health as well.

Oh!  Want a good laugh?  Read the Book "Shit My Dad Says".  I laughed so hard, my wife thought I was having a heart attack.
