E – nough sleep. According to a Sleep in America poll by the National Sleep Foundation, sleeping problems have increased 13% since 2001. Lack of sleep can be a major safety problem for people driving. Make it a goal to get enough sleep.
A – void portion distortion. Rather than worry so much about what you eat, consider how much you eat. Downsize your portions. Serve food on smaller plates. Eat from plates and bowls rather than packages and bags so you know how much you are eating.
R – eading materials. Consider the source before beginning a new drastic diet or exercise plan. Beware of plans that promise quick results, charges large fees and rely solely on testimonials and statements from professionals with unusual sounding degrees.
