Site Administrator - 7th November 2013

This edition of Top 3 Thursday are the top 3 ways to improve your health today!

1. Find some Personal Quiet Time
“Stop and smell the roses” is not just a saying; it’s also good advice. 
When you “stop” for even a few minutes, the effects are immediate:
the heart beats slower, blood pressure normalizes, and your mind clears.

2. Eat a Piece of Fruit
Fruits are convenient snacks,
excellent sources of vitamins and minerals, low in calories and rich in soluble fiber that helps lower cholesterol and reduces the risk of heart disease. 
Vegetables also have the same effects and benefits. 
An apple or carrot a day just might keep heart diseases and the doctor away!
 
3. Laugh
Laughter may really be the best medicine. 
Laughing boosts blood flow by more than 20-percent, which is a similar effect to aerobic activity. 
A fast blood flow shows that your arteries are wide open and supplying
the heart and the entire body with blood.
