      I think it is interesting that no men have commented on your hub yet. I guess statistics are right.

      I would add, constantly researching health and longevity. New discoveries are made daily. Many people still do things that were believed to be healthy in the past that have been proven to be detrimental now.

      Well I am definitely failing on no.24. But thanks for reminding me that exercise every day is important. I was running 10 miles per week up until 3 months ago, and then I decided to start a new internet project . . . Great information.

      Great Hub Adriana. Simple things but people tend to forget these.I enjoyed the video too. It's very informative.

      By the way, just want to add that I eat fish a lot, I use peanut oil(fights bad cholesterol) and avoid High Fructose corn syrup which is found in most food and drinks today. I've done a few research and feel that HFCS is bad for the body.

      Lisa, acknowledging your achievements is a great way to give yourself a boost: it's important to celebrate the positive in our life.

      Great hub. It's an excellent reminder of where I need to focus: more nature, vacation, give up sugar, more water, more sleep more exercise...Maybe I should also acknowledge what I have acheived on your list--it's a longer list and feels better!!!

      I'm taking a class that's quite demanding and, while it's a little stressful, my mind loves working on all the new information--so I heartily endorse your paragraph on exercising the brain. It feels good.

      THumbs up!

      Another one is to live in the present moment as much as possible without reliving past pains or imagining worries for the future.
