Here are some tips—take a class, learn a new language, work puzzles like crossword or Sudoku.  Join an exercise class that has aerobics, strength training and stretching.

Limit red meat and dairy but eat lots of leafy greens, fish and nuts.  Be social by getting involved in the community and stay active with friends.

Maintain normal blood pressure and watch your cholesterol.  Take a yoga or tai chi class to help your stress levels.

Until next week, have a good one!
