Your most valuable liquid asset

Water is the single more important dietary nutrient you take into your body. It lubricates your joints, aids your digestion, promotes healthy circulation, clears away harmful toxins, and regulates your temperature.

These benefits are just scratching the surface of what drinking water will do for you body.

Dieting in reverse

Eat Fresh

Our bodies are designed to derive our nutrition from fresh foods. It's as simple as that. There is much more to the food experience though, and exploring our relationship to the foods we eat is illuminating.

Fortunately, you can easily shift your relationship with food. With just a few simple additions here and there, you can zing with the energy.

Movement is the ancestor of exercise

Move Your Body

The function of our bodies depends on movement. Movement promotes the health and function of every cell through enhanced circulation and the delivery of oxygen and nutrition. Take the stairs. Walk to the store. Move your body as much as you can each day!

Sleep and Reset

The fact is, needing sleep is almost seen as a sign of weakness in our society. Sleep deprivation is a badge of honor in progressions from medicine to computer programming.

But here's the truth: if you exist on stolen naps at your desk, or gallons of coffee and a prayer, you may be seriously harming your health and taking years off your life.

Stress is the disease, oxygen is the cure

Breathe Deeply Every Day

How do you know you're breathing deeply? On a daily basis, most of us breathe shallowly, using only a small percentage of our lung capacity and getting just the part of the oxygen our bodies require. It's kind of like holding your breath all day long.

If you lead a busy, demanding life, you may spend a lot of time breathing shallowly while you're not under stress. That creates a habit – so even when you're not under stress, you may still breathe like you are.

Breathing is about training your mind to think in a different way, making purposeful optimal breathing a daily habit.
