The world is getting smaller. Just look around you: skirt is getting shorter, pants is slimmer, T-shirt tighter. Let's face it, fashion has always been kinder to those with nothing to hide.

The world is getting cleaner too. Young people are smoking less, drinking less, pigging out less. People are taking the road less paved with nicotine, alcohol, and MSG. In supermarkets, we see them reading labels, comparing nutrition information, chunking preservatives in favor of fresh picked organics. Brands are introducing alter egos with reduced calories, no salt added, no sugar added, 50% less butter, 70% less sodium, 100% fat free!

Hey the world is getting healthier! Bodies are getting buffed, waistlines trimmed, muscles toned. Trips to the gym are now more common than trips to the cafeteria to grab a slice of cake. The "working out" class has taken over society. And if this trend continues, we're going to have one beautiful and cellulite free world, with absolutely breathtaking views and no sagging landscapes.

Here is a few list on how it works for most happy people...

Drink 8 glasses of water a day.
This is to replace water used and lost daily. The body will not function properly without enough water and can't metabolize stored fat efficiently. And when water is retained, it shows up as excess weight. To get rid of excess water you must drink more water. Water also controls the body's temperature, softens the skin, cushions and lubricates the joints.

Run 3 times a week.
Running is a rigorous cardiovascular exercise that allows you to burn an average of 100 calories per mile you run. It helps lower blood pressure by maintaining the elasticity of the arteries. As you run, your arteries expand and contract more than usual, keeping the arteries elastic and the blood pressure low. Running also helps maximize the lungs' potential, as it keeps them strong and powerful. It also strengthens the heart and helps prevent heart attacks. The large muscle exercise it provides helps keep the cardio system efficient and strong.

Sleep 8 hours a day.
Enough sleep is necessary for our muscles to grow and our nervous systems to work properly. Too little sleep leaves us feeling bloated, drowsy and unable to concentrate the next day. It also causes impaired memory and physical performance and reduced ability to carry out math calculations. Without enough sleep, we may develop hallucinations and mood swings.

Laugh as often as you can.
Laughter is one of the best muscle relaxants. Laughter expands blood vessels and sends more blood rising to the extremities and other muscles all over the body. A good bout of laughter also reduces the levels of stress hormones epinephrine and cortisol.
