Eiight Rules for a Healthy Life

Ronni Bennett, of Time Goes By, offers these simple, common-sense rules for a healthy life:

Eat lots of fruits, vegetables and whole grains
Avoid too much fat, red meat and sweets
Take some regular physical exercise – every day
Exercise your mind too
Get enough sleep
Don’t smoke tobacco
Get a physical checkup once a year

If we all followed these rules, there would be no need for all of those best-selling books about staying young, about turning back the clock. Ronni suggests that we save our money. I agree. Like her, I am a realist.

Those are good points, but I personally believe "stay happy and positive" as the number one catalyst of good health and a good life.

I agree, Paul. Without being happy and positive, one isn't likely to be motivated to follow the other rules

So, I like to be stick with any type of natural food not only milk. I believe the most important part of our healthier living is healthier food.
