Vía Zen Habits, el agradable punto de vista de Leo, que hace que todo parezca tan fácil.

“… And so I did a little research today — I found the top causes of death, then created a spreadsheet for the controllable risk factors for each.

Some things can’t be controlled (your age, family history of diseases, gender). But others can. And those things aren’t a huge surprise — you already know not to smoke, drink too much, or eat crappily.

It’s interesting, though, how all of the major diseases are caused by the same things: smoking, diet, exercise, alcohol and stress.

Below I’ll list the top habits you can change, and a simple method for changing them. …
1. Stop smoking
2. Lose weight (if you’re overweight)
3. Exercise
4. Drink only in moderation
5. Cut out red & processed meats
6. Eat fruits & veggies
7. Reduce salt, and saturated/trans fats
8. Reduce stress

… how to change these habits:
– Change only one habit at a time
– Create positive habits you enjoy
– Start as small as possible
– Make it social
