1. Daily exercise. You’ve got lots of options: walking, jogging, biking, rowing machine, elliptical machine, swimming. But don’t feel like you have to be an athlete. Walking is great exercise. Get 10 minutes here and there during the day. It all counts.
2. Healthy Diet. Quit eating junk food and high-fat fast food. Your heart, brain, and overall health are harmed by foods high in saturated fats, salt, and cholesterol. There’s no getting around it. You’ve got to replace them with healthy foods: lots of fruits, vegetables, fish, nuts, olive oil.
3. Regular Physical Exams. Tell your doctor your family medical history. Learn your personal risk factors, and the screening tests you need.
4. Reduce the Stress. To be healthy, we need to set boundaries — and set limits on work hours. We should not be working so hard that we’re neglecting the things that keep us healthy. Make sure you’re getting proper exercise and sleep — and that you’re not trying to do too much.
