Martha Stewart Takes on Health Care

She also admits that, while she relaxes with yoga and insists on at least an
hour of exercise every day, she doesn't have a true personal formula for really
unwinding. "I wish I had one!" she laments.
Then she thinks about the question a little longer. "Although, when I
get on my horse and go out into the woods, the thing I always say is, 'It
doesn't get any better than this.' That's a good little motto. We all need to
look for those moments when we can say that."
It's all part of Stewart's personal philosophy for aging well, which she's
hoping to spread broadly through the center and her new multimedia health
initiatives. "You have to find the path to wellness. Drugs and medical
attention are a part of that, but it's also about diet,
and exercise, and a calm way of thinking about your everyday challenges.
"That's much more appealing to me."
