Minutes to a Healthier You . . .

It's not the hours we spend at the gym that makes a difference in our health, it's the little things too.

Recent research has found that simply being happy can lengthen your life 7.5 to 10 years. So take time each day to relax and reflect on the positives. I like to write down five positive things that happened in my journal each night to remind myself of the joys I might easily forget the next day. It only takes a few minutes to do, but it provides a wealth of happiness for me — and apparently it is extending my life as well.
