#STOP! There are 4 Characteristics of a Healthy Lifestyle

September 9, 2016


Even when faced with death, most people didn’t STOP stressing their bodies and minds. If you’re stressed out, your life may depend on how willing you are to STOP doing what’s gotten you into your current state. Einstein said the definition of insanity was doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results.


More than 97 percent of American adults do not meet four basic characteristics of a healthy lifestyle, researchers at Oregon State University found in a study published in the Mayo Clinic Proceedings at the time of this writing. Although two-thirds had at least one or two vital healthy habits—a good diet, moderate exercise, healthy BMI, and not smoking—researchers were stunned that so few people had all four.[i] We have to STOP and look at ourselves.


I welcome your feedback.


Joy to you!
