How do we plan for a longer, healthier life? According to an Annals of Internal Medicine study, there are four simple priorities people need to have in order to get healthy: quit smoking; eat five servings of fruits or vegetables each day; get to a "healthy" weight; and exercise vigorously for 100 minutes each week.
These priorities seem obvious, but Newsweek's Kate Dailey says most Americans are failing at following these four simple rules. Dailey discusses how this failure can actually be beneficial when it helps us discover where our weaknesses lie. We'll also hear from Dr. Andrea Price, an OB-GYN at Women's Health Alliance of New Jersey, who says although these priorities are important, they should be tailored to each person.
