Eat more plants and fewer animals
Dr. Shin makes it easy: "Eat more plants, less animals, and try to avoid the processed stuff that would be part of a disaster preparedness kit, like instant noodles, SPAM, Cheez Whiz, etc. ... OK if you're in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, but then heart disease is probably the least of your worries." Though if everyone lives forever, isn't that something like the zombie apocalypse?
Don't become a party legend
Relieving stress and socializing are important aspects of a balanced, healthy life, but that doesn't mean you should reach for oblivion every weekend. "We recommend 6 to 8oz of alcohol per day," Dr. Shin says. "That doesn't mean you can 'save it up,' e.g., not drink all week and drink seven drinks Friday night. Anything more than that increases risk of high blood pressure."
