INTERVIEW WITH SSJ
Susan Smith Jones, PhD, hasn’t been sick in over 30 years. She doesn’t receive flu shots or take medications. Some people may call it clean living, others may credit luck, but Jones attributes her phenomenal health to the wisdom passed down from her grandmother who taught her to rely on nature’s nourishment—food, spices, herbs and healthy lifestyle choices— for total wellness.
Jones has made it her life’s mission to spread this wisdom, first as a teacher for more than 30 years at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and by establishing herself as a foremost expert on diet, nutrition and natural remedies, writing more than 2,000 magazine articles on health and 27 books, including Walking on Air, Healthy, Happy & Radiant...at Any Age, Living on the Lighter Side, The Curative Kitchen & Lifestyle, The Joy Factor, and for children, Vegetable Soup/The Fruit Bowl.
When it comes to creating vibrant health season after season, Jones said we should look to the “super foods” and other lifestyle choices for healing the body, boosting immunity, and feeling energetic and youthful... at any age. Each day when you wake up, she says, can be a new beginning, a fresh start where you commit to the healthiest lifestyle possible. She reminds us that we are the President and CEO of our body and our life and we need to make our health a top priority day in, day out.
Here are her top tips for staying well — mentally, physically and spiritually — this season and beyond.

Excerpts from The Joy Factor: 10 Sacred Practices for Radiant Health
In Chapter 5 (Exercise — Fast and Slow, Alone and Together: I Choose to Move) of The Joy Factor, I cover in detail the best exercises to look younger and tune-up your body, and also share many amazing stories from my clients' experiences about how exercising regularly changed their lives, from individuals to families. This chapter will inspire and motivate you to embrace a life of fitness, especially the personal story about my first marathon and how my grandmother, Fritzie, rallied me on from the other side, a year after she passed away. Here's a brief excerpt from the chapter. And if you need help staying motivated to exercise regularly, please click here.
Excerpt from The Joy Factor — Chapter 5 below:
We all know exercise is a key component of vibrant health, yet statistics reveal that only about 25 percent of Americans make exercise a regular part of their lifestyle. My hope is that after reading this chapter, if you’re not already a fitness enthusiast, you’ll be helping to increase the percentage. Whether you have several children and are busy with them from morning to night or are CEO of a Fortune 500 company who puts in 12-16 hours a day, seven days a week at the job, you must find time to exercise.
If you can’t carve out an hour each day to exercise, or even 30 minutes, then break the time up into 10- or 15-minute allotments. It should be pretty clear by now that I don’t believe in gimmicks and potions and magic pills, and I promise you there is no substitute for exercise. The old “I don’t have time to exercise” excuse just doesn’t work with me. You must make fitness a priority — a nonnegotiable part of your day.
You need — we all need — to find some type of physical activity that fits into your lifestyle and that exercises not only your body, but also your mind and spirit. If there is one self-help idea that has really caught on and that I’m sure will stay with us, it’s the idea that physical fitness transcends the physical body and benefits your mental and spiritual fitness as well.
