Mid-life Without the Crisis

It really isn't the destination, but the journey. May be cliche, but it's true.

Happy Valentine's Day

Grow old with me!  The best is yet to be.  ~Robert Browning  

On this day dedicated to love and all things of the heart, I thought I'd remind you to take care of your actual heart.

Looking at several health sites, I find that the top advice for a healthy heart are the following:

  1. Eat plenty of fiber and whole grains.
  2. Avoid cholesterol and unhealthy fats (trans fats & saturated fats)
  3. Maintain a healthy weight.
  4. Exercise regularly.
  5. Find effective ways to deal with stress.
  6. Stop smoking.
 If you have someone special in your life, enjoy your day together.  If you don't have a significant other, then do something nice for yourself.

Whatever you do, I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day.
