What are your “go-to” activities for health and wellness?
John J. York: “My go-to activities for health and wellness are playing golf with friends and I walk pretty aggressively for about 2 1/2 miles from two to four times a week. I go on a hiking trail.

Why is wellness important to you?
John J. York: It’s important to me because I want to be able to enjoy spending time with my grandkids, my family, and friends for as long as possible!

How do you keep a healthy mind?
John J. York: I try not to think too much. (Wryly) It hurts my head. I try to stay as positive as I can about whatever is going on in my life and I try to keep stress to a minimum as best I can. If you can do something about something you might be facing, do it…if there’s nothing you can do, let it go and move on! Granted, that is sometimes easier said than done.

What workout tips do you have for people?
John J. York: I really don’t have any tips or tricks for wellness other than to eat as healthy as you can, try to exercise even if it’s just walking around the block a couple of times, and keep stress to a minimum. (Wryly) I’m sure you’ve never heard that anywhere before.

As always, consult your physician before embarking on a new physical or diet regime. General Hospital (GH) airs weekdays on ABC. Check your local listings for airtimes.
