Here are some tips for living a long and healthy life:
-Be physically active. Incorporate 30 minutes of activity into your day, every day.
-See your physician for regular preventive check ups and screenings, such as the PSA test for prostate cancer.
-Learn the symptoms of heart attack and stroke and if you have them, get help fast. New medications are highly effective if given quickly.
-If you drink alcohol, do so in moderation, no more than two drinks per day.
-Eat a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
-Have your cholesterol checked. If your total cholesterol is more than 240, your risk of heart and stroke is greater.
-Remember to laugh. Find the humor in life. You'll be happier, and so will those who love you.
