Very good health tips, Delores Liesner & Anne Galivan! Thank you!
My tip is “Eat what is really good for you, but include in your equation what you really love to eat!”
Nice, Tom! – thanks! 😉
“Laugh a lot, it keeps you in a great mood & helps with your general well being! Watch comedic movies or hang out w/ friends! @naturalhealthy”
Great advice, Holly! Laughing is the best!
Daily reminder to me: take vitamins, drink water, breathe deeply, walk briskly, laugh loudly, give hugs @natural healthy

Placing a new bar of Ivory bath soap under your bottom sheet (near your calves) will help control restless leg syndrome.

Thanks Barb! GREAT advice 🙂

We love it! Thanks Akanksha!
Savor your food-eat slowly! It takes your body 20 minutes to tell your brain that you’re full. Slow is sweet, don’t overeat! @naturalhealthy
Fantastic job Mathew! Way to rhyme at the end there too 😉
