Here are four of Dr. Oz's must have habits to live a longer and happier life:

1. Show up early: "Being 5 minutes late is a small thing that creates big stress, which in turn can cause chronic inflammation and high blood pressure. For instance if you get to work 5 minutes before 9, you're not stressed because you're ahead of everyone else."

2. Don't skip breakfast: "Our bodies have a biological expectation of a morning meal, so when you skip breakfast your body get confused and think there's famine. This decreases your metabolic rate and makes it harder to burn calories throughout the day."

3. Stretch first thing in the morning: "Stretching for 10 minutes every morning has a variety of benefits, including decreasing risk of heart attack, alleviating stress, and improving circulation. You can feel the effects in just 10 days."

4. Respect the 10 PM hour: "There's a sacredness to sleep that we overlook and it's a big problem in America. By 10pm, you'd better be getting ready for sleep, because the average American gets up at 6, and you need 8 hours."
