    Lightbulb Better yet have

    Hello dear teachers,
    I've just composed some sentences which contains some grammer structures and expressions in bold type, so could you please correct them for me? and let me know if I've done any mistake?
    1.Using English while talking with people is what makes me able to practice my spoken English.
    2.The more you eat healthy food, the longer you live and the better you will feel.
    3.the more I find solutions to my problems the more I feel relaxed and at my ease.
    4.It's well worth it to keep just thinking about your own business.
    5.You might take some days off or better yet have to take a vacation and go away.(could you please give me other examples using this expression or make me understand how we corecctly use it?)

    When you use "better yet" you are offering another solution to a problem...it is almost like you think of the second solution as you write the first one.

    I will pick you up at 7:00pm in my car or better yet, why don't I hire a taxi instead. That way I won't have to worry about drinking alcohol at the party.

    Here comes the check for the meal. I guess I can pay for it or better yet, you can pay for it and claim it on your expense account!
