In this video, Gracefully Greying health correspondent Lila Lazarus shares five health tips that most people don’t know about.

Want to lose weight?

Lila recommends the first step is to clear your kitchen counter clutter. A clean environment will lead to clean and better choices.

Want to lower your blood pressure?

Get a pet. It really does relieve stress and it is nice to have someone love you for who you are.

Want more energy?

It may seem like it is the last thing you want to do when you are exhausted, but the answer really is to add exercise into your day. Not only will you increase your energy level, you will also boost your mood.

Want better posture?

Grab a hula hoop. We may think of it as a kids toy, but it is actually a great way to increase core strength and use all your muscles to keep the hoop steady.

And finally: do nothing.

Learn why Lila says this is not a waste of time but a necessary part of life.
