Speaking of which, while lying on the couch yesterday, blowing my nose and generally feeling very sorry for myself, I watched the Jane Pauley show. There was a guy on the show talking about physical age vs. "real" age (decided by different health and lifestyle factors). You can take the test at realage.com. Very interesting stuff. The doctor on the show is actually 58 but his "real" age is 40. I’d like to say I am lots younger (hey, I’ve lost some weight and been working out) but it isn’t so. However, there are some very simple things I can do to change that, including upping the vitamins I take (and making sure I take them every day) and adding an aspirin a day to my regimen.
Here was something I didn’t know. Drinking coffee is actually beneficial for a number of reasons. Of course, I use Coffeemate Non-Fat French Vanilla creamer with all of its bad additives, so I bet I don’t get quite the benefits from my coffee habit. And did you know that flossing adds to your life? Yep. It’s true.
The things we learn when we lop on the couch.
