Worum geht's

Eat, Move, Sleep (2013) offers simple tips for improving your health and well-being in some very important ways. You don’t have to revolutionize your lifestyle to get in shape and increase your energy levels – little changes can make a big difference, and these blinks will show you how.

Small lifestyle changes can have a big impact and increase your chance of living a longer life.

A lot of people don’t start taking care of themselves until their doctor utters some fateful words, likely along the lines of “You’re out of shape,” or “You’d better start shaping up if you want to make it to your retirement.”

If you want to avoid this awkward conversation, heed this simple advice before a doctor gives it to you.

Living a healthy lifestyle isn’t easy. It can be hard to say no to a can of soda or a larger portion of fries, but resisting these temptations will bring you great benefits. The sooner you start treating your body right, the better your chances of living a long and healthy life.

In fact, researchers from the University of Gothenburg found that 90 percent of the population could live to be 90 years of age or older simply by making some important lifestyle choices. You can increase your energy levels, maximize your potential at work and sleep better just by eating the right foods, starting with a healthy breakfast.

It’s true that health is partly determined by your genes, but it’s important to develop healthy habits regardless of your genetic makeup.

You can’t change your DNA but you can change your lifestyle. And your lifestyle itself has an impact on your genes!

Tom Rath, the author, is an extreme case of this. When he was only 16, he was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Von Hippel-Lindau (VHL), which shuts off the gene in charge of suppressing tumors, leading to the growth of cancers throughout the body.

Instead of giving up, the author focused on what he could control: his diet, exercise and sleep. He learned how to decrease the odds of the cancers spreading and has managed to live a long and healthy life.  

Even if you have a genetic tendency to be obese, for example, exercise can reduce that predisposition by up to 40 percent.
