With five months to go, Jacobs has already compiled a list of five pieces of advice to help others adopt a healthier lifestyle. They include keeping track of numbers (from calories to the number of steps taken each day with a pedometer), always be moving, treating the elderly kindly, designing a healthy environment and actively supporting one another. AJ Jacobs has discovered that being healthy is a full-time job that is time-consuming, but also very rewarding in the long run. Stats for Lessons for Self-Improvement Trending: Older & Chilly
