06.12.13 Feeling Paranoid? Here Are 3 Things Actually Worth Worrying About

The problem is simple to diagnose: Adults today sit a lot, eat too much and stress out more than their parents did. "People are eating way more than they can burn off, resulting in an imbalance that puts on more weight and causes high blood pressure and high cholesterol," says Dr. Balu Gadhe, chief medical officer for CareMore Medical Services in Cerritos, Calif. Insufficient exercise is a major health risk. The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention advises all adults age 18-64 to get 150 minutes of moderate aerobic exercise a week. Gadhe suggests that adults launching an exercise regimen aim to exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day, three to five times a week, even if it's just walking. Adding weight-bearing exercises, at home or in a gym, will tone muscles, which helps burn calories beyond the workout. Finally, preserve your health by improving the quantity and quality of your sleep, maybe by spending less time worrying about shark attacks and more time relaxing in the knowledge that your shift to healthier habits will extend your life. "During good quality sleep, organs repair and rejuvenate themselves," Gadhe says, adding that coffee, alcohol, stress, cigarettes and a lack of exercise can all interfere with your rest.
