Eat Better

Changing your diet is one of the easiest ways to improve your health and vitality. There are many different fad diets and thoughts about nutrition, but a few ideas appear universal. Eating fresh fruits and vegetables is good for you. Overly processed or synthetic foods are not good for you. A variety of foods can get you the assortment of vitamins and minerals you need. Please consult your doctor before making any dramatic dietary changes. 


Running, jumping, swimming, and weightlifting are some of the many ways to exercise. By exercising you can improve the health of both your body and your mind. It's not easy to hit the gym or to get out of the house for a morning run, but it will get easier and you will get stronger. Finding the right exercise is important, so consult someone knowledgeable like a trained professional or your doctor. 




There's nothing quite like reading. Books expand your mind and take you to other places. Some types of books include: Fiction, Poetry, Non-fiction, Comic, and Text. Whether you're looking to learn a new skill or to escape to a far away place, books have got you covered. If you have no idea what to read, you might want to consult your local independent bookstore.


Investing can be risky, and not everyone is into risk. If that's you, maybe saving money is your path to prosperity? There's less risk involved in saving money and it can make you feel really proud when you pass milestones. Whether you're setting aside some for a rainy day or building your nest egg, saving money is one way to make sure that your future is more prosperous. 




There's no better way to improve your life than to improve the lives of others. There are most likely places in your neighborhood where you could volunteer. Local parks, animal shelters, retirement homes, and community outreach centers are all great places to start. By volunteering you'll be passing along the Vulcan blessing through action, helping others to live long and prosper.
