Are you eating healthily and exercising regularly but still feeling like you could do more to enjoy a better quality of life?

Strong scientific evidence points towards a smoke-free lifestyle where one practices healthy eating habits combined with regular exercise.
The tongue-in-cheek ultimate recipe though, is to marry a “happy-go-lucky outdoors-loving sex-mad hippy party-girl in senior management with a cat.”
