- Use lists when possible. People love reading lists, especially tips lists. I know, tips lists seem like a simplistic way to present information. But people love them. I post a tips list every Wednesday.
Here are some tips for this week. They are medical. Please don't sue me if things go wrong.
Tip #1: Don't smoke. I work in a hospice. Most of my patients have cancer. The End.
Tip #2: Build up your bone density at a young age. As in, younger than people who read this blog****. That's not to say that a little weight-bearing exercise, calcium and vitamin D will do you any harm if you're post-pubescent.
Tip #3: Wear sensible shoes. This will help prevent falls, which will help prevent fractures, because you've probably left it too late to build up your bone density.
* I do have some lists about, being an obsessive list-writer**.
** I once wrote a list of "52 fun things to do." Number one was "Write lists." I think I ran out of fun things at number 37. This says a lot about me.
*** At work, not on this blog.
**** Unless you're really young. In which case, sorry for swearing.
