Occasional thoughts about life, books and news.

High fives

Quick thought.  I just read Jill Ruddock‘s “high-five” rules for good health (via an Evening Standard piece on health reform). Her book, “The Second Half of Your Life”, is aimed at women, but the memo works all round.

– Keep in touch with family and friends.

– Think of others.

– Cultivate a passion.

– Exercise

– Eat well

It reminds me of  Anthony Clare’s Seven Steps to Happiness.

Who cares if cliches are cliches, if they keep you going stronger for longer?
