Exercise is a Must!
Hate the gym? Don’t like anything too hard-core? Have no fear there are many choices out there and something for everyone. Take a 30-minute walk, climb some stairs, put on some great music and dance around your living room. Just get moving! Of course here in South Florida you have wonderful options like swimming and walking on the beach all year long! Don’t forget strength training to build bone mass and some core work for a healthy back! Pick up some light hand weights and find simple routines for weight training and core work on-line. Aim for at least 3x a week to start and build from there!

Keep Sugar and Caffeine to a Minimum.
Yes that means cutting back on alcohol and caffeine. Moderation is key! Decreasing sugar actually increases people’s energy, by minimizing the highs and lows that sweet food triggers. Different people react differently to caffeine, but most of us are probably overstimulated already — adding a stimulant just adds to stress and anxiety levels.
