NORTH OLMSTED, Ohio, Feb. 28 /PRNewswire/ — With busy schedules and lifestyles, keeping your mind, body and soul healthy can be a major challenge. Consider these 10 tips to help you live a happy, healthy, safe and balanced life:

1) Get Physical

Exercise not only helps you build muscle, lose weight, and gain self-confidence, but it's vital in maintaining a healthy heart. And, don't think you need to spend hours at the gym to achieve a new physical you. From strength training and cardio workouts, to walking the dog or taking the stairs – anything that gets your heart pumping will benefit your health.

2) Stress is a Mess

Over time, stress can lead to serious health issues such as obesity, depression and even death. When you start seeing red, instead think blue – as in blueberries. Antioxidants found in the tasty fruit fight stress hormones. Also, don't forget to breathe. Inhaling a deep breath for five seconds then exhaling for another five seconds can help clear your mind and enhance blood circulation.

3) Get a Grip on Safety

With wet, hard surfaces, the bathroom is your home's biggest danger zone. Find a fixture that complements your faucet and helps you get a grip on safety by adding a few stylish and safe products to your ensemble, such as grab bars, tub grips, bathtub tread strips, shower chairs or transfer benches. HomeCare(R) by Moen(R) offers a wide assortment of stylish, stable and durable bath safety products at Lowe's.

4) LOL, Laugh Out Loud

Build your immune system through laughter! Health-increasing hormones like endorphins are released into your body when you laugh. Additionally, laughter works your abdominal muscles.

5) Eat Healthy

We know we should eat healthy, and with new online tools it's a no-brainer. The new MyPyramid program (www.MyPyramid.gov), developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, allows you to choose the ideal proportions or foods and food groups to eat according to your body size and structure.
