Numbers drive much of what we do in healthcare. We as caregivers use a variety of methods to assess our patients — blood pressure, respiration rate, pulse, body temperature, blood glucose, cholesterol, and the list could go on and on — with almost all of them based on numerical values that allow us to make a diagnosis and determine how to treat someone or what advice to give.
With that in mind, I’m here to offer 1 set of guidelines: “How to Live to be 90 with Life’s Simple 7.” The goal is to assist you in being healthy, having a sharp mind and having fun. And, of course, each of these 7 tips has numbers associated with it!
There are no guarantees, but if you incorporate these 7 tips into your daily habits, you’ll improve your chances of living 1 healthy life until the time you’re 90 or older.
