Here are 10 simple tips that can help you to improve your health starting today!

1. Go for the best – There’s a lot of food out there: make the commitment to always choose the best from what’s available. Look for the freshest, least-processed, and healthier options.

2. Up your vitamin quotient – Eat at least one great big salad every day. Use vitamin-packed greens like romaine, arugula, tomatoes and carrots.

3. Focus on fruit – Grab different colored fruits and keep them out so you’re more likely to eat it. Or try dried fruit like apples, peaches, pears, bananas or raisins. Chop them up throw in some nuts and you’ve got great trail mix.

4. Oxygenate yourself – Chronic stress is depleting; when you’re under pressure, you tend to take short shallow breaths which deprive your body of the oxygen it needs. Sit still and take 10 deep, slow breaths. Mentally you’ll feel calmer. Physiologically, you’ll bring down both your heart rate and your blood pressure.

5. Exercise regularly – Regular exercise reduces your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of cancer. Think of it as a preventative pill.

6. Check in with your body – Avoid muscle strains by using this body scanning move. When you feel tense, close your eyes and do a mental scan of your body to find the areas where your body is reacting to stress. Move that area to increase blood flow.

7. Take it up a notch – People who exercise the most intensely have the lowest risk of coronary heart disease.

8. Don’t smoke – Come on, you knew this one already. If you do, pick and date to quit. You’ll improve your life expectancy and your breath too. Smoking is the single most unhealthy thing you can do.

9. Take it easy – If you tend to be stressed out most of the time, incorporate relaxation into your day. Five-minute breathing breaks can help you control stress.
