Today Todd and I shared some more ways to be better than average in less than five minutes!

The first thing we talked about is everyone favorite – weight loss! So, How do we attempt to be better than average? Lose four pounds! The Framingham (FRAM-ing-ham) Heart Study found that those who are overweight who lost as little as a pound a year for 4 years cut their risk of developing high blood pressure by as much as 30%. A little bit of effort can go a long way!

What are some easy ways that we can drop that pound a year? Here is a list of simple, fast and healthy ways to lose weight! Here is the list that we shared from:  How to Lose Weight Fast: 3 Simple Steps, Based on Science 

Next, we shared about how average driving habits are deadly.  Did you know Nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average that’s 3,287 deaths a day? How to be better than average? We all need to pay attention while we’re driving. Look both ways at green lights. Running a red light causes more than 75,000 fatal accidents a year, and with the increase in distracted driving caused by texting, these side impact crashes are on the rise.

We talked earlier about how running a red light causes more than 75,000 fatal accidents a year, so we need to be careful as we go through intersections. Another tip when driving to avoid accidents is to flare out your mirrors. Many people have their side mirrors adjusted incorrectly. When you can see the back corner of your car after leaning toward the mirror, it’s adjusted according to the American Automobile Association.
