  1. You are so right... Stress does play a huge factor in health...Your best health care plan is a no brainer, then again, there are some out there.....

  2. May I add "don't smoke" to your list?

    I couldn't agree with you more. People need to take responsibility for their lifestyle choices and realize that there are real consequences. I see those consequences each and every day in my line of work.

  3. So true. Are you sure exercise is on the list? LOL

  4. I simply loathe the idea of being 'old' and unable to function well for an extended period of time. Therefore, barring any major accident or unforeseen limitation, I will continue to follow your prescribed list.
    Have always been strong and active, even when I was a bit too overweight. You're right. There are absolutely no excuses.

  5. KBF: We are in sync.

    5thsister: You are so right. The info is now in. We used to speak in terms of percentages of the chances of lung cancer. Now, it is clear that the percentages of something, be it cancer, emphysema, lung disease, heart disease, or some other God-awful thing is virtually 100%. Want to live longer? Don't smoke. It beats the heck out of a good insurance policy.

  6. *^_^*: Thank you. It is just common sense.

    Karen M: Get off that couch right now!

    'Yellow Rose' Jasmine: Keep it up and you might get older, but you will function just fine all along the journey.

  7. I agree with all, heartily, and love no. 3 best.

  8. Suze: I figured you would, because you are a positive person. There are many folks who do not exercise very much and eat many of the wrong things, but with great attitudes, they live long, healthy lives. Negative attitude is BAD!

  9. You are totally right JJ. I agree with 5thsister and would add "no smoking". All is much easier to achieve than many think it is.

  10. Yay and amen. Keep it simple but often we (I) tend to make everything so complicated.

  11. FanaticoUm: I agree. It is difficult to break any habit, but it all comes down to will power.

    Manzi: I absolutely agree.

  12. Here, here! I have so many friends and family members who turn to bottles of pills and expensive doctor's opinions when all they need for health (physically and mentally), is a healthy diet, excersize, and a good night's sleep every night.

  14. Yes, very true. No excuses and no short-cuts!

  15. Doctor Botta ... you are oh so very right!
    Eat Well + Sleep Well + Move Well = Living well

  16. Akseli: Excuses really prevent many people from doing the simple things that are necessary for good health.

    Katherine: Thank you. The simple process does work, and as several people have commented, I probably should add no smoking to the list.

  17. Be sure to choose from the three major food groups--salt, sugar, and preservatives!!

  18. Judie: Good idea. Once the basic game plan is adopted, the rest is easy.

    ReplyDelete
  19. KB: I know from following your blog that you have certainly adopted a healthy lifestyle. Good for you!

  20. We are now back to our healthier way of eating after having had way too much fried seafood on our vacation. I think Rod was a little disappointed that there was no fried shrimp on the salad we had for dinner last night!

    Whenever we find ourselves walking along the beach, Rod and I entertain the thought of moving back. Once we get home, though, the lack of bugs and the low humidity here in Tucson seem to blur those thoughts. Still...

  21. Judie: I like Tucson. Arizona was one of my hangouts in my past life that I never discuss. Before we moved to New Hampshire, we were domiciled in Vermont, but we moved around the country, and when I completed each work assignment, we returned. We moved 29 times. My kids all went to four different high schools - each!

    Tucson is one of my favorite places, but it is missing one element - the ocean.

    ReplyDelete
  22. JJ, that is it in a nutshell--no ocean! And now that western Mexico/Sonora is such a dangerous place in which to travel, we can't even visit the Sea of Cortez, which is only 4 hours from here, at Rocky Point! Of course, San Diego is only 6 hours, but walking in the surf there is like walking on crushed ice! Brrrrr! The Pacific is way too cold for me!!!

  23. Judie: I took a straw poll and everyone wants you back. Just do it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's right. No excuses. I'm trying to be more mindful of all three.

  25. Galen: We all are. It is much easier to write about it than to practice it.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hmmmmm--I'm thinking maybe, but then again...

  27. Judie: 90-100 degrees is not hot enough for you?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Simple and always the best ;D Link it up over at monday madness? http://wordsinsync.blogspot.com/2011/08/monday-madness-linky-plus-poem-cyclic.html

  29. It is wicked hot here, and Rod came close to passing out yesterday while taking the dogs for a walk. Little Liz would only walk in his shadow, and when they got home, I put them in the pool to cool off.

    It is almost too hot to eat, and we have been having salads at night for dinner. VERY healthy, wouldn't you say?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Shah: I will today, if I can figure out how.

    A-M: Absolutely!

    Judie: "Wicked Hot"? Are you sure you're not from New Hampshire?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Elizabeth Young: What would you add? Granted, there are many items that could be added, such as avoiding tobacco products, but most people I know struggling with health issues do not maintain those three elements. Am I incorrect?
