Renewing Yourself

Don't think of your body as a car that's slowly getting old and rusty. WebMD guest expert Henry S. Lodge, MD, says that our bodies are made of living cells that are constantly renewing themselves. Don't think of yourself as an aging car. Think of yourself as an endlessly renewing organism.

The key, says Lodge, is making sure your cells come in stronger instead of weaker. That means exercising, eating healthy, and having good relationships with people. If you don't -- and live a life of inactivity, overeating, and boredom -- your body will decay.
