Five Don'ts and Five Dos for Better Health

When the Cleveland Browns picked Louisiana State University’s Greedy Williams in the 2019 National Football League draft, they were given an “A” for the acquisition by sportswriters at the local paper, the Nashville Tennessean.

But greedy isn't always a surefire route to success. Consider what's happening in today's healthcare universe.

Over the course of a decade, out-of-pocket expenses have risen more than 53%, while insurance company profits have skyrocketed.

It’s little wonder a study in the Journal of General Internal Medicine found that 56% of Americans report worrying about and having trouble paying for medical care.

Many say they forgo or delay care because of the high price of medicines and procedures. That's not good.

We hope someone or some group can implement a creative solution that protects people's health and covers preexisting conditions.

In the meantime, taking control of your health has never been more important. Here are the 10 most effective ways:

1. No smoking, nor second- or third-hand smoke exposure

2. No red or processed meats

3. No added sugars or syrups in food or drinks

4. No excess alcohol (maximum of one to two glasses of wine in a day)

5. No sitting down for longer than 60 minutes at a stretch

6. Yes to getting 30 minutes of aerobic exercise five days a week

7. Yes to strength-building activities for 30 minutes twice a week, and doing 20 jumps daily

8. Yes to seven to nine servings of fruits and veggies daily

9. Yes to managing stress with meditation or deep breathing

10. Yes to seven to nine hours of sleep nightly
