The 'Eat, Move, Sleep' formula for better health

February 24, 2012 8:01:40 PM PST
Experts say that a simple formula may add up to better health: "Eat 5, Move 10, Sleep 8."

The "5" is eating at least five servings of fruit and vegetables each day.

The "10" is getting at least 10 minutes of moderately vigorous activity each day.

And the "8," of course, is getting about eight hours of sleep each night.

It's all part of the Mayo Clinic's "Eat, Move, Sleep" strategy for better health. You can find it in the clinic's new book "Healthy Heart For Life."
