Windey avoids junk food and eats a healthy dietShe starts her day with a glass of water or fresh juice.  Drinking enough water is important to regulate body temperature, keep joints lubricated, prevent infections, deliver nutrients to cells, keep organs functioning properly and to improve sleep quality, cognition and mood, according to Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

Windey wakes up early and does regular exercise. She walks for 30 to 60 minutes five times a week. Regular brisk walking can help maintain a healthy weight and lose body fat; prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure, cancer and Type 2 diabetes; improve cardiovascular fitness; strengthen bones and muscles; improve muscle endurance; increase energy levels; and more, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Windey avoids alcohol and tobacco, as you might expect of a former medical professional.  Alcohol and tobacco use may lead to major health risks when used alone or together, according to the National Institute on Alcohol and Alcohol Abuse. Alcohol is associated with chronic liver disease, cancer, cardiovascular disease and other problems. Smoking is associated with lung disease, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Windey goes to bed early and tries to get a good night’s sleep. Public health officials advise adults to get seven or eight hours of sleep a night. Getting enough sleep can boost the immune system, prevent weight gain, strengthen the heart, improve mood and memory and increase exercise performance, according to SCL Health, a nonprofit health system in Montana.

Windey has a goldendoodle dog named Leonardo and said that any partner would have to take both her and him. Owning a dog makes a person more physically active, reduces feelings of isolation and loneliness, calms the nerves and lowers blood pressure and heart rate, according to Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
