Walk ev­ery day. Walk­ing has been as­so­ci­ated with low­ered risk for heart dis­ease, de­pres­sion, can­cer, di­a­betes and obe­sity.

Do some form of med­i­ta­tion, grat­i­tude work or jour­nal­ing. About 80 per­cent of the ti­tans of in­dus­try, en­ter­tain­ment, sports and tech­nol­ogy in­ter­viewed by Tim Fer­riss in his book, Tools of Ti­tans, med­i­tates or does some­thing sim­i­lar. Sim­i­larly, grat­i­tude work and jour­nal­ing will help you fo­cus on restora­tive emo­tions that re­duce stress, calm the soul and may ex­tend your life.

Have your hor­mones eval­u­ated and op­ti­mized. You can ac­com­plish plenty with diet, nu­tri­tion, and life­style, but why not have your hor­mones work­ing for you rather than against you?

Take sleep and stress se­ri­ously. Sleep is restora­tive and vi­tal. Lack of sleep is a stres­sor that will add belly fat, shrink your brain and con­trib­ute to an early death and a shitty life.

Take the ba­sic sup­ple­ments. At the very least, sup­ple­ment with fish oil, mag­ne­sium, vi­ta­min D, pro­bi­otics, cur­cumin, resver­a­trol and a form of vi­ta­min B3 that pro­motes cel­lu­lar health and healthy ag­ing (nicoti­namide ri­bo­side).

Eat real food. I’m talk­ing about food your great grand­mother would rec­og­nize as food. Food that spoils. Food that was hunted, fished, gath­ered or plucked. “Eat real food” is the sin­gle best and most im­por­tant nu­tri­tional strat­egy for health and longevity.

Nur­ture Re­la­tion­ships. Who you spend time with — and what you spend time do­ing — is a crit­i­cally im­por­tant vari­able in the qual­ity of your life. Find ways to make a con­tri­bu­tion to oth­ers — it’ll pay you back way more than it costs you in time. Eat meals with fam­i­lies. Vol­un­teer. Make a dif­fer­ence and feel good about it. Nur­ture friend­ships.
