"… And so I did a little research today — I found the top causes of death, then created a spreadsheet for the controllable risk factors for each.
Some things can’t be controlled (your age, family history of diseases, gender). But others can. And those things aren’t a huge surprise — you already know not to smoke, drink too much, or eat crappily.
It’s interesting, though, how all of the major diseases are caused by the same things: smoking, diet, exercise, alcohol and stress.
Below I’ll list the top habits you can change, and a simple method for changing them. …
1. Stop smoking
2. Lose weight (if you’re overweight)
4. Drink only in moderation
5. Cut out red & processed meats
6. Eat fruits & veggies
7. Reduce salt, and saturated/trans fats
8. Reduce stress
… how to change these habits:
- Change only one habit at a time
- Create positive habits you enjoy
- Start as small as possible
- Make it social
