5 Is the New 10

5 Tips to Feel Great Today:
1 – Eat something green  at every meal. And by green we mean a vegetable. Limeade and green apple Jolly Ranchers do not count. Veggies fight cancer, help you lose weight, boost your brain, and just generally mean business.
2 – Eat something red, like a tomato. Tomatoes contain lycopene . This is great for your eyes, which are fresh now but often get blurry by day’s end, right? We humans may be endlessly fascinated by the latest office memo (sure), but fortunately, our eyes seem to know when to call it quits. Give them a little lycopene and lutein love, would ya? (Psst…cooked tomatoes are actually richer in lycopene than fresh tomatoes.)
3 – Jam out to some really sappy music  you loved in high school. Not that anyone here ever does that, but we hear it’s great for stimulating endorphins and other feel-good brain compounds.
4 – Call a friend. See a movie. Take a walk around the block. Anything that gives you a little respite from a long work week. Remember that caring for your emotional health is a major part of beating stress and staying fit!
5 – Get some good fatty acids in that body! Pick from Smart Butter  (yum!), avocados, nuts, fish, grass-fed meat, olive oil, or organic peanut butter.
