Put good food which is balanced and nutritious into your body.

Love sleep

Get enough sleep each night 6-8 hours.  Sleep is crucial for strengthening memories.

Love moving

Make sure you move every day – take a walk, stretch etc.  Have a regular balanced exercise programme – cardio, strength and core, and flexibility.

Love rest

Take time to rest, relax or have some quiet time each day.  The benefits of meditation/prayer/thoughtfulness have been well researched.

Take fresh air every day. Studies show that being out in the countryside can cut recovery times from illness, fight against cancer and boost your mood.

Love friends and family

Research suggests people with strong social ties live longer than those who don’t.

Love yourself

Smile, laugh and have a positive mind.
