1. Be grateful - Start a regular routine of morning and evening gratitude reflections. Perhaps start a gratitude journal so you and reflect back on your accomplishments & challenges to hone in on areas of correction to reach your goals and dreams.
2. Get plenty of sleep - Sleep allows the body to regenerate at the cellular level. The more sleep you get the better you will perform the next day in mind, body and spirit.
3. Breathe deeply - Stop and make more conscious breaths over the course of your day. With brain retraining this will become a healthy habit.

4. Movement- Start a movement exercise such as Yoga, Running, Zumba, or Quoya and doing it regularly.
5. Install a shower filter - Chlorine is a poison. You don't want to inhale it or absorb it through your skin while showering.
6. Ground yourself - Literally. Plant your bare feet on the earth as often as possible. Go for a walk regularly, commune with nature, sit and reflect. Let Earth's gentle vibrational frequencies bring down and retrain your own biorhythms back to stress free homeostasis.
7. Eat organic when possible - Chemicals are killing pests on the crops. They are not good for you either.
8. Smile more - It feels great :)
9. Spend more time with loved ones - In our busy lives we need to make time for the people who matter to us most.
10. Live your passion - Do more of what you love and remove negative influences whether people, places or "things" in your life that no longer serve your health and well-being
11. Meditate- Set some time aside each day to sit still in silence to rest your mind.
