Ready to improve your life big time? Check out these 23 easy eays to feel better and live longer from one of TV's most

famous docs

ROTF, LMAO
Laughing not only eases stress, promotes social bonding, and lowers blood pressure, it may also boost your immune system.

So bring some humor into your life, whether it's through friends or even a new TV show (preferably mine).

Women's Health Tip
Besides laughing, certain foods have been proven to soothe stress and can counteract the damage that chronic pressure does

to your bod. Stock up on these eats and beat down stress for good.

Don't Skip Breakfast
Fiber in the morning means less hunger late in the afternoon, when you're most likely to feel tired and gorge yourself on

sugar. My morning dose comes from steel-cut oatmeal, usually mixed with raisins, walnuts, and flaxseed oil. An early start

on eating also keeps your metabolism more active throughout the day; breakfast eaters are thinner than people who just rush

out the door.

Hit the Sack
Conan and Dave are funny, but they're not worth the strain on your system. Seven hours of sleep a night not only helps you

live longer, but also lowers your stress, sharpens your memory, and reduces cravings for pants-splitting foods. Set a

bedtime and stick to it. My target is 10:30 p.m. I record the late shows and then watch them the next day as I pedal a

stationary bike.

need.

Admire Your Work
Don't be so trigger-happy with the flusher. Turn around and take a look at your poop, which speaks volumes about your gut

and overall health. Poop should be smooth and S-shaped, like your colon. If it comes out too lumpy, or drops into the bowl

like marbles, you're constipated. Increase your fiber and water intake. This happens to me when I travel, so I fiber-load

before a trip to avoid getting irritable.

You don't need Metamucil—here are 30 great-tasting ways to add fiber to your diet.

Don't Pamper Your Bad Back
Even if you're hunched over in agony, taking to your bed will only make a bad back worse. The latest research shows that

bed rest weakens back muscles and prolongs the suffering. Married men may suffer more than single men because of all the

pampering. I used to love milking the care from Lisa, but the best solution is to get up, take a pain reliever, and be a

soldier.

Women's Health Tip
Try these safe and simple yoga moves to prevent and relieve back pain.

Taste the Colors
Foods with bright, rich colors are more than just nice to look at. They're also packed with flavonoids and carotenoids,

powerful compounds that bind the damaging free radicals in your body, lowering inflammation. (Sadly, skittles do not

count.) Eat nine fistfuls of colorful fruits and vegetables each day and you'll reap the benefits without having to give up

other foods. Whenever I shop the produce aisle, I'm reminded that these foods are often more powerful than the drugs sold

in pharmacies. My favorites are arugula and blueberries.
