Get exercise for a minimum of half an hour each day although exercising for 45 minutes to an hour is even better!
Drinking water throughout the day will rehydrate your systems, replenish you and reduce appetite. Don’t believe me? Try it!.
Sleep for between 6 to 8 hours nightly making sure you give enough time for the body to heal, recharge its “batteries,” regenerate new cells, rest the mind and allow the immune system to function at its highest capacity.
Take time to appreciate life. Slow down. What’s the rush? Take a stroll in a park with nature. Walk slowly. Enjoy the natural scenery!
Exercise your brain. Allowing positive thoughts and happy memories to be predominantly the way you think and feel will bring about a much healthier you than one weighed down by negativity and unhappiness.

fresh vegetables, fruit, grains, beans and legumes, Healthy fats (extra virgin olive oil, nuts, avacado), Fish and seafood, other sources of protein (such as lean meats, eggs, chicken and turkey).
