I read an article from Reader’s Digest (July 2010 issue) and I thought I’d share with you these four things that you should monitor daily to make sure that you are living healthy.
Produce (fresh) – the amount of fruits and vegetables you ate that day
Exercise – whether you walked and were active
Relaxation – whether you got at least 15 minutes of laughter and fun time for yourself
Fiber – whether you got enough beans, grains, and other high-fiber foods
If you can say you did well on all four, your day has been extremely healthy.
(Needless to say, this doesn’t apply if you spent the rest of the day, say, drinking, smoking and eating chocolate).
