5 Signs you're healthier than you think . . .

From Woman's Day - June 16, 2009

1. You have several cups of coffee a day. A recent Swedish study found that people who drink 3 to 5 cups of coffee at midlife are less likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer's later on.

2. You say 'thanks'. A new study reveals that expressing gratitude may be the key to happiness and overall well-being.

3. You laugh a lot. Research has shown that laughter expands blood vessels and might even lower your heart attack risk.

4. You tidy up the house. Just 20 minutes of sweeping, scrubbing, and doing other household chores can boost your mood, not to mention burn calories.

5. You surf the Internet. UCLA research shows that it stimulates brain activity.

Well, according to this list - I'm healthy! (lol)


And a thought to leave you with -

In the midst of movement and chaos, keep stillness inside of you. - Deepak Chopra

Ha! Guess we're all healthier than we think, thank heavens.
If you're quiet inside, all is well I believe.

That's an incentive to keep tidy and keep laughing and keep blogging. I love coffee and can't remember a day without it in my adult life.

The funny thing about lists is this - who makes them, are they valid, and do I want to do them.

I like this list better than some others I've read, but am I really that healthy (lol)?

I do need my coffee!
