WESTCHESTER, Ill., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Research shows that about 80 percent of people who make New Year's resolutions fall off the wagon by Valentine's Day(1). If this is true, why do we give ourselves such lofty expectations in the first place? Old London, the makers of America's favorite Melba toast snack, is helping consumers become more "well-rounded" with their everyday health habits by launching "A Toast for Everyday Health" Web source and sweepstakes. Old London's Melba Snacks(TM), Melba Toast(TM) and JJFlats Flatbreads(TM) are low-calorie, low-fat crackers made with all-natural ingredients and whole grains.

Celebrity host Samantha Harris and a team of fitness and nutrition experts have teamed up with Old London to offer up easy-to-manage health and fitness tips and kick-off an online sweepstakes where one lucky winner and guest can win an all-expense paid trip to the luxurious Enchantment Resort & Mii amo Spa in Sedona, AZ.

Samantha Harris Shares Non-Jarring Tips

Most of the time, the changes needed to enhance your well-being are not only manageable but can be downright enjoyable. Old London's team of experts will supply consumers with the tips they need to make progress one day at a time, without an overhaul or burdensome commitments. To get started, here are a few of Samantha's "Top Ten Healthy Living Tips", also featured at

  • Take naps. Napping is my ultimate guilty pleasure - yet healthy! Just being able to catch up on sleep is so important for overall health, especially because it keeps me alert.
  • Take fitness classes, such as yoga. Being part of a class helps motivate me to work out regularly and have the support of others.
  • Soak in a steam bath. I do this after working out. It's so relaxing for muscles and provides a natural boost to your immune system.

"Toast to Everyday Health" Team of Experts

Enchantment Resort is home to Yavapai Restaurant which won the AAA Four Diamond Award for 2006.
