Simple daily habits to live longer?

Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
What simple daily habits can we adopt to live longer?

A: Practical and simple habits for living a long and healthy life include going to bed before 10 PM and waking before 7 AM, a brisk morning walk or exercise routine, a wholesome breakfast, and very light dinner no later than 7 PM. Generally, meal portions should not be larger than size of the two palms together to make a bowl. Beverages should be room temperature instead of ice cold, and should not include excessively sweetened, artificially colored, or flavored sodas. Proper hygiene includes washing hands, and brushing your teeth before and after meals.

Additionally, you can supplement a healthy lifestyle with the Traditions of Tao “Five Elements of Health”, “High Performance“, and “Enduring Youth” herbal formulas to promote physical vitality. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
