Challenge yourself…

… to eat at least one fruit or vegetable with every meal, every day for a week.

Then try it again the next week.

Go an entire week…

… without eating fast food. See if you can do it again the next week.

Ditch your devices at least one hour before bedtime…

… put your phone and tablet in the other room. If you need help winding down, listen to soothing music or read a favorite book instead.

Start parking…

…as far away as you can from your office, kids’ school, the grocery store, etc. You’ll be amazed at how much extra activity you can sneak in during the course of just one month with all of those extra steps.

Make a regular time to laugh…

Find a new TV comedy and set your DVR or beef up your collection of favorite funny movies.

Sit up straight

“The way you stand, sit, and walk is also a part of your well-being and health care. If you are always slouching or walking like a zombie, you need to take care of your posture because not doing so could result in physical deformities and other health problems. To maintain a good posture, place your body in a neutral position so that your pelvis, trunk, and head are in alignment. It is an optimal position that helps you to work efficiently even for long hours.

Benefits of a good posture:

  • Keeps bones and joints in correct alignment
  • Decreases stress on ligaments
  • Prevents fatigue
  • Prevents backache and muscular pain
  • Contributes to a good appearance”

Ditch coffee for green tea

Ditch coffee with green tea and juices**

I don’t understand the gratification people get by bragging about their addiction to coffee (or tea). Having a cup or two is fine, but gulping down seven to eight cups of caffeine isn’t doing you any good. To bid goodbye to coffee-addiction, replace coffee with green tea or natural juices. Loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, they can have powerful effects on your health.

Benefits of green tea and juices

  • Catechin in green tea prevents cell damage and promotes cell growth
  • Amino acid L-theanine improve brain function
  • Prevents skin aging and Alzheimer and Parkinson disease
  • Lowers the risk of Type 2 Diabetes
  • Helps you lose weight and lowers the risk of obesity”
