Top 6 HEALTH HACKS!!!


Let’s say you don’t floss every day and never will. Instead of simply accepting your periodontal peril, you can do something for your gums that’s almost as good. 

Or maybe you can’t be bothered to tally up the number of footsteps you take in a typical day. No problem: You can still enjoy the benefits in a way that doesn’t require counting to 10,000.
It isn’t just that the second-best strategies described on the following page are better than doing nothing {even though they are}. They’re so damn good for you that no matter what the champion is up to, you’ll still be enjoying your place on the podium for years to come.


1. If you can’t take at least 10,000 steps every day. . .
Put down the pedometer and start the stopwatch. You can reap the same health benefits by counting minutes instead, says Catrine Tudor-Locke, Ph.D., chair of kinesiology at UMass Amherst.
Can you manage three 10-minute brisk walks a day? In a Norwegian study, older men who did precisely that six days a week cut their risk of dying of any cause during the study period by 40 percent.

2. If you won’t apply sunscreen on your entire face. . .
At least cover the cancer magnets: Your nose, eyelids, and lips. Your schnoz is the most common place on your face for basal cell carcinoma, while 5 to 10 percent of all skin cancers occur on eyelids. And men are more likely than women to develop tumors on their smackers.
Swipe Badger Sport Sunscreen Face Stick, SPF 35 {$10, badgerbalm.com} onto all three hot spots. Then slip on some UV-blocking shades.


3. If you forget to floss on a daily basis. . .
You can either pick the detritus from your teeth or pick up a set of dentures. A dental pick removes food particles that swishing and spitting can’t budge, says D.C. dentist Brian Gray, D.D.S.
Try Gum Soft-Picks; the rubber bristles stimulate your gums and spelunk for gunk, Dr. Gray says. Research shows that these interdental excavators are just as good as flossing at reducing plaque and preventing gingivitis.


4. If you can’t have sex at least three times a week. . .
You’re not alone, and here’s what you’re missing {besides the obvious}: a reduced risk of erectile dysfunction, says Darius Paduch, M.D., Ph.D., director of sexual health and medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College.
His Rx: thrice-weekly orgasms. Hit the gym too. Men who log at least two hours of strenuous exercise each week have harder erections than less active dudes, report Duke University researchers.

5. If you don’t sit up straight at your desk. . .
Compensate by bending over backward. Slouching can decondition your back muscles, deplete energy, and cause a piss-poor mood.
Can’t walk it off? Then stand up and place your hands on your hips. Now slowly bend back. Do this a few times every hour to undo the havoc from your hunching, says Evan Johnson, D.P.T., director of physical therapy at the New York-Presbyterian Hospital Spine Center.


6. If you can’t rally yourself to cook your own meals. . .

Stop inviting extra calories to dinner. Folks who eat fast food three or more times weekly are 81 percent more likely to be obese than those who eat it less than once a week, the Michigan Department of Community Health found.
Plan ahead: In a 2014 Appetite study, people who checked a menu online before ordering chose meals with 145 fewer calories than the grub others grabbed without as much thought.
