When you're one of the experts onThe Doctors, Travis Stork, Jim Sears, Andrew Ordon, Jennifer Berman, Rachael Ross, and Jennifer Ashton (check local listings or thedoctorstv.com), you give and get a deluge of health advice every day. These are the tips the docs themselves follow—daily. (Hint: none involve an apple.)
1. Bolster immunity.
I use one or two squirts of saline nasal spray every morning and night—it immediately moisturizes nasal passages and washes away congestion, allergens, and other irritants. Moist nasal membranes also act as an extraprotective barrier when a virus tries to invade. –Travis Stork, MD
A hundred push-ups! It sounds like a lot, but I break it up into 20 reps 5 times a day. If you're not used to push-ups, do them on your knees, or start with 2, 3, or 5 and add one each week. –Jim Sears, MD
3. Calm your mind.
I begin and end each day with a gratitude list and wind down with a guided meditation. I search YouTube and select whatever my need is that day: relaxation, love, or health. Changed my life! I wake up happy and go to sleep with a quiet mind and calm stomach. –Jennifer Berman, MD

4. Drink lemon-aid.

I start every morning with a glass of cool water with freshly squeezed lemon. It hydrates, gives me a dose of vitamin C, boosts the immune system, and has fat-burning benefits. And when skin is hydrated, fine lines and wrinkles are less obvious. You look better; you feel better. –Andrew P. Ordon, MD

5. Trick a sweet tooth.
I have a sweet tooth, so I created a healthy daily dessert: Take a slice of toasted whole grain bread, slather it with 1 Tbsp of almond butter, and top with sliced banana, blackberries, a drizzle of melted dark chocolate, and ground flaxseed. It satisfies cravings while providing protein, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, potassium, and tons of antioxidants. –Rachael Ross, MD
6. Make an oil change.
I noticed a huge improvement in my skin when I started exfoliating nightly, then applying either a retinol cream or coconut oil as a moisturizer.
