Mind Tip Don’t leave your health up to fate. People who believe they can control their destiny make healthier choices and are less likely to smoke.
Do you have faith that everything will work out? That’s great, but don’t let it keep you from living a healthy lifestyle. When it comes to living a long and healthy life, be as proactive as possible. Research shows that people who believe that they can influence their destiny are less likely to smoke or binge drink, and more likely to exercise and follow a healthful diet. The key to staying healthy, say researchers, is a positive, can-do attitude. If you’re ever feeling discouraged, remind yourself that each day’s choices can add up to a lifetime of benefits. Taking a 10-minute walk and choosing an apple over a brownie are small but meaningful acts that can grow into healthy habits.
