Wellness and Healthy Living - What Does it Take to Live Well, Live Long, and Live Healthiest?

Have you immersed yourself in super food syndrome? Well, I have and it fills great. You see, I have a healthy diet of nuts, fruits, vegetables, spices, meat, and fish, then I follow that up with a very good group of supplements. Why, because I'd like to live like the Vulcans on Star Trek, a species of humanoids known to both; "Live Long and Prosper!" When I say super foods what do I mean, you ask? Well, how about foods with Omega 3, and all the best anti-oxidants, vitamins, and reputation for being super healthy. Foods like salmon, avocados, tomatoes, broccoli, walnuts, almonds, garlic, blueberries, dark chocolate, cinnamon, etc. Why not go do your own homework and look and find all the super foods and add them to your diet? You owe it to your body to do this. 
Next, figure out if you are getting enough sleep each night, don't get your body into a sleep deficit, as it can take a toll and often feels like it's a cumulative problem. Also, exercise is very important, and you need to find the time, even if it's only for 1-hour per day perhaps walking a few miles. There is an old Celtic phrase; "Be Well, Live Well, and Live Longest!" - and you know that sure is darn good advice. And speaking of advice; let me give you one more important tip. 
You need to consider perhaps a vitamin supplement program, as this will offset whatever you may be lacking in your diet, giving you more anti-oxidants, vitamins, and essential minerals and electrolytes. Look, I know it's hard to eat right, but you have to do it. Why not stack the deck when it comes to your future health? The ball is in your court, no one is going to follow you around and make sure you do it right. Eat right, exercise, get a good night's sleep, and pick a vitamin supplement program you can live with, live healthy with that is.
