Lifestyle habits


 Here is a list of some lifestyle habits that we need to adopt?  So far the researchers have isolated nine:
  • Stop eating when you’re 80 percent full  (try not to walk away from the table feeling stuffed)
  • Eat more veggies, less protein and fewer processed foods  (although I like protein-needed to build muscle)
  • Drink red wine, in moderation  (I drink white)
  • Have a sense of purpose in life
  • Maintain a spiritual or religious belief system
  • Work less, slow down, take vacations  (this could be a hard one)
  • Make physical movement a vital part of each day  (this is hard also but must be done)
  • Create a healthy social network   (have friends)
  • Make family a priority 
A pretty good guideline.

Ladies, what do you think of this list?  What would you add?

  2. Hi Ann,
    That is an excellent one!!! We are always so afraid to say no. We have always been conditioned to have to say yes.
