LIGHTEN UP AND LIVE LONGER!
ENJOY YOUR MEALS!
A 2016 study showed women over 50 who obsessively diet are 3.5 times more likely to have a fatal heart attack! Enjoy mealtime, but eat reasonable portions and balance your diet with healthy options.
GET SOME EXERCISE
Not only does exercise keep your weight in check, it also boosts your mental health and mood, while extending your lifespan and strengthening bones and muscles.
LAUGH A LITTLE!
Laughing isn’t only fun, it’s healthy, too! It lowers stress, which is known to trigger internal inflammation that can speed up the aging process.
REDUCE YOUR STRESS
Identify the negative trigger points in your life and cut them out. If your commute is a sore point, get up earlier and take your time to enjoy the ride!
DON’T HOLD IT IN!
People who hide their feelings are likely to become overwhelmed by them, leading to ulcers and even heart failure. Letting your emotions out is healthy physically and emotionally.
MAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF
Set aside at least 15 minutes a day to decompress and relax. Also, be sure to get enough rest. Both will relieve stress on your body and help you enjoy life more!
