  • Good health doesnt have to come at a cost. Ten of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to get physically fit include:

  • Walking 10,000 steps or 30 minutes a day, five days a week. A pedometer worn on your waistband can help you achieve your goal no matter where you go.

One thing I did this year was buy a membership to a golf course and plan on walking at least two 18-hole rounds a week.

  • Eating a balanced diet that includes the appropriate amount of servings from each food group. Refer to the food pyramid below

  • Getting involved in a community-based or work-related sports team and go to every practice. You dont have to be the best athlete to reap the rewards of doing drills or running around bases.

  • Setting small, obtainable goals regarding your health. Keep a journal as a way of tracking your progress

  • Partnering up with a friend or colleague and combine exercise with socialization. Catch up with one another over a game of tennis and increase your endurance. This is something else golf can provide. The key is to avoid getting a cart and picking up a six-pack of beer while on the course!

  • Maintaining balance. Resting up, drinking lots of water, and keeping a positive frame of mind will help you achieve your goals quicker

  • Having a yearly check-up with a physician. Prevention is always the best medicine. A trained professional can help you create the type of work-out that best suits your physique and personal medical history.

  • Eating at home at least five days a week. AConsumer Reportssurvey reported that successful losers choose home-cooked meals over convenience foods. We also have this going for us since we eat virtually every meal at home and use typically fresh foods, but its also just as easy to stray from the food pyramid when cooking at home if you arent careful.

  • Reducing the size of your plates and eating less at every meal. There is no need to clean your plate when you are no longer hungry. The Japanese people living in Okinawa eat until they are 80% full. You can use this strategy too.

  • Formulating lifelong habits that are not detrimental to your health and well-being. The time to give up your vices is today. You cant expect to lose weight or increase your life expectancy by drinking, smoking cigarettes, or bingeing on food
