1. Drink More Water – 2 to 3 liters a day

2. Eat Protein for Breakfast (rather than carbohydrate based foods) – Think eggs and ham rather than pancakes or cereals

3. Walk 5 Days a Week for 30 minutes minimum – Move fast with purpose to get your heart rate up and a little sweat flowing

4. Strengthen your Muscles – Simple squats holding a chair, pushups and crunches is a great start

5. Avoid Fad Diets – Americans spend more than $30 billion annually for weight loss programs and products looking for a quick fix. There is NO quick fix

6. Avoid Fast Food Restaurants – Americans spend more than $100 billion on fast food. Try a salad with grilled chicken. Your heart will thank you and you won’t have that miserable urge to sleep at your desk

7. Get your Spine Checked – Subluxations (misaligned and stuck spinal bones) is considered by many experts to be one of the most commonly misdiagnosed issues leading to headaches, pain, low energy, poor sleep and more. A well-adjusted spine = a well-adjusted life

8. Take a Break – People in the U.S. are continuing to add more time to work and taking less time for leisure. Get off the grid on occasion so you can decompress and renew your energy and passion for work and life
