Eat Fat to Avoid Fat
If you’re working on getting leaner, don’t cut out good, healthy fats like omega-3 fatty acids. Lack of these nutrients can negatively impact the speed (and how) you age. To keep feeling and looking younger, incorporate more oily fish, walnuts, and flax seeds into your diet, which also help the skin stay supple and wrinkle-free. Omega-3s also help boost brain health and keep the heart in good shape. 
 
 
Wash Up Before Bed
Don’t go to sleep without thoroughly washing your face. Over the course of the day your skin and pores collect dirt and oil. If you don’t wash it all off before you hit the hay, the dirt will clog your pores overnight and you’ll wake up with irritated skin that is quite the opposite of a healthy, glowing complexion. 
 
 
Prevent Injuries with Yoga
Most yoga classes begin with a reminder to honor your body’s particular needs and limits on that particular day. This basic ability to scan and assess yourself as you practice will help reduce the incidence of injury when running or playing other sports. Plus, flexible, well-stretched yoga muscles can heal and recover more quickly after working out or getting strained. 
 
 
Limit Processed Foods
You may have to eat a frozen meal now and then, but don’t make it a habit. Certain packaged foods can be loaded with sodium and other preservatives. The FDA suggests sticking to no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium per day—that’s one teaspoon of salt. A typical frozen entrée can easily pack more than 30% of your sodium intake for the day, so check the label before plopping one in your grocery basket. 
 
 
Take Health Screenings Seriously
“Cars get routine check-ups. So do planes,” says Daniel Cosgrove, M.D., medical director of the WellMax Center in La Quinta, California. “But for our bodies, the most precious thing we have, we wait for symptoms. And unfortunately, most diseases are far advanced by the time one gets symptoms.” Schedule an annual physical exam with your primary care physician to stay healthy.
 
 
Limit Salt Intake
The average American consumes more than double the American Heart Association’s daily recommendation of 1,500 mg. Excess salt can up your blood pressure, putting an added burden on your poor old heart and may also hide your hard-won chiseled abs behind a buffer of bloat, give you some busted looking bags beneath your eyes, and cause your fingers to swell up.
 
Improving your 'health and wellness' generally refers to promoting good health and reducing risk of disease with a holistic approach which takes into account many factors including physical and emotional issues.
