Great question!

1. Aerobic exercise 3x per week (dancing, kickboxing, running or swimming).
2. Leisure walk in the evening with family for fresh air.
3. Strength training/weight lifting 3x per week
4. Laugh often! I spend lots of time with my son & husband who both make me laugh every day...boys are silly!! :-)
5. Spend quality time once/week with friends and (at least) once/week alone to re-energize.
6. Only eat red meat once per month and have changed my regular weekend omelets to egg white-only
7. Pay my bills on-time! I avoid late fees which reduces my stress!!

Dear Kinnis,

Meditation twice a day... (Mastery of Energy Healing... if you're interested...)
Bicycle riding to take in the fresh air every day...
Running... Push ups... Sit ups... Two to three times per week.
I love to run from class to class when at school. It makes me look busy... LOL.
& finally, green tea once a day...

Could anyone say that the usage of our fingers is good enough to be considered good for the heart. I don't know but that might sound like an extra sentence. Hmmm... Anyway, keep in touch with your heart people! Yeah!!!

Raw greens and fruits with high Omega 3 and gluten-free diet
CoQ10, minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium) and garlic supplementation
4oz of red wine 3-4 times per week (with dinner)
Polyphenols (green tea)
