1. Know Your Numbers:
    • Regularly check your blood pressure, body weight (BMI), and cholesterol.
    • If they’re not at goal, consult a physician or nurse practitioner.
  1. Stay Active:
    • Aim for 30 minutes of moderate exercise most days (walking, cycling, swimming).
    • Keep it engaging: join a class (aerobics, yoga, spinning) or explore sports (golf, tennis).
    • Challenge your mind too: read, learn new skills, or join a club (chess, bridge).
  1. Eat Smart:
    • Focus on portion control and avoid overeating.
    • Include at least 5-9 servings of fruits/vegetables and 1 serving of lean protein daily.
    • Vegetarians: consider supplementing iron (18mg) and B12 (1000mcg) daily.
    • Stay hydrated: drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  1. Prioritize Rest:
    • Get enough sleep for optimal function (most adults need 7-8 hours).
    • Adequate rest enhances productivity and overall health. 
    • Many people fall into the trap thinking that they need to sleep less to get more done. The opposite is true. More sleep results in clearer thought and higher productivity.
