Ten steps to a healthy new you

As outlined in Medical Notes by Dr Mark Porter in todays Evening Standard.

1. Broaden your mind - do something completely different.
Trekking in Africa next month is pretty unusual.

2. Worry less about your weight and more about your shape.
This is about losing intra-abdominal fat.

3. Run for charity
Well, I'm trekking for charity

4. Identify any problems in your life, face them, and take action
Am doing

5. Join a Pilates class
OK will do

6. Have your blood pressure and cholestorol level checked
Did it 3 weeks ago

7. Quit smoking
Not relevant!

8. Take the right supplements
Not sure about this one. But a Brazil nut once a day can help. Rich in selenium.

9. Cut back on salt
Will do

10. Treat yourself to a regular massage
Frequently do. Ask for Eva at "Sheline" in St Johns Wood

Hey best of luck with the trek.

What a fantastic thing to do.

Just read these steps to a better you.

Have no Pilates classes in this part of the world so will have to just try and sit more upright at my computer chair.

The quitting smoking I plan to attack as from Monday.

As for the rest. I'm trying.

Each year more than 1 million people die from tobacco and Throat Cancer related illnesses. Because of advertisements and other forms of media that build up smoking, bounteous teens think it is hip and cool to smoke. Now more than ever bounteous teens are getting addicted to nicotine and cigarettes. http://www.chantixhome.com/
