Reader Poll: Formula for a Happy & Healthy Lifestyle!

healthy-questionsRecently, I’ve been thinking about what makes for a happy and healthy lifestyle. Is there some magical formula? A detailed set of rules to follow? What I discovered is that if a formula does exist, it’s probably a little different for everyone.

So, I started creating a list. Then, I reached out to my Facebook friends and family to see what items they would add to the list. Together, we’ve been putting together a list full of great ideas and suggestions for living our ideal lifestyle. Below is what we’ve come up with so far:


Formula for a Happy & Healthy Lifestyle

1. Eat real food.
2. Start the day with a positive thought.
3. Avoid diets with an end date.
4. Do moderate exercise 30 minutes 4 times a week.
5. Form social connections.
6. Avoid negative people.
7. Get a good night’s sleep.
8. Smile!
9. Try to focus on the positive.
10. Drink lots of water.
11. Laugh…a lot!
12. ….???

Here’s where you come in, wonderful readers. I would LOVE it if you would add to this in the comments section below! Add as many as you’d like. Comment on any of the items already on the list. Which are most important to you? Why?
