- Exercise your mind and body.
- Eat right. Cut red meat way back or eliminate it altogether. Eat lean poultry, or better yet, eat fish. Eat your veggies and fruits, just like your mom told you.
- Socialize more. Develop a large circle of friends with varying interests. Laugh, cry, and learn with them.
- Take care of your body. Quit smoking, reduce your alcohol intake, and reduce stress in your life.
