It has been a while since I've updated OutsideIN Life ... more on that to come.

For today I am sharing with you these ten stpes for a healthier, happier life!

True health is a journey that you can choose to go on or not. If you want to join this lifestyle quest here are some steps to help you on your way:

Step 1

Learn to Cook. The more you eat healthy home made meals the better.

Step 2

Eat back to basic foods - if you can't pronounce something on a label you probably shouldn't be eating it.

Step 3

Aim for 5 servings of fruits and 5 servings of vegetables each day.

Step 4

Walk at least 30 minutes everyday. It can't be a saunter, you have to walk briskly. Can't get up to brisk? Start off slowly and work your way up to brisk. Check with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime.

Step 5

Practice some type of stress reduction. Meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, deep breathing or going for a walk all are great choices.

Step 6

Socialize. People who have active social lives are in fact happier than their peers who don't socialize. Find a happy medium between work, family life and socializing is key.

Step 7

Practice an act of kindness everyday. It can be as little as offering your seat on the bus to as large as volunteering at an old age home or shelter.

Step 8

Practice gratitude. When we dwell on the things we're grateful for we become more positive people.

Step 9

Eat a small piece of dark chocolate every day. Research suggests that it may help reduce your chances of developing heart disease. We need a tiny treat every day. Emphasis on tiny.

Step 10

Get 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Your brain and body need to reboot every night. Getting enough shut eye will help your body fight stress and keep your immune system working on optimum.
