Start Small

Here are 10 small steps to get you on the road to better health in 2010.

1. Take a 10-minute walk. If you don’t exercise at all, a brief walk is a great way to start. If you do, it’s a good way to add more exercise to your day.

2. Give yourself a lift. Lifting a hardcover book or a two-pound weight a few times a day can help tone your arm muscles. When that becomes a breeze, move on to heavier items or join a gym.

3. Eat one extra fruit or vegetable a day. 

4. Make breakfast count. 

5. Stop drinking your calories. 

6. Have a handful of nuts. 

7. Sample the fruits of the sea. 

8. Breathe deeply. 

9. Wash your hands often. 

10. Count your blessings.
