LOS ANGELES, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- Having sex and eating chocolate are the keys to a happy life, says actress Teri Hatcher, star of the U.S. TV series "Desperate Housewives."
The 43-year-old actress said in addition to her two main life recommendations, others should remember to floss their teeth and avoid stress if they want to have a happy life, People magazine reported Friday.
"Have great sex (and) eat the chocolate," the single mother-of-one said.
"Don't sit on public toilet seats and make sure to floss … . Life's too short to stress; you'll be able to get past anything difficult; the sun will rise tomorrow; you are beautiful; you are lovable."
People said the admittedly cynical actress said she maintains a to-do board in her home that helps her maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle.
"Against all my well-honed cynical beliefs; it's actually working," Hatcher said of her goal-oriented list.
