- Exercise is Essential- 'nuff said
- Eat Food, Not Pills- this is something I adopted from Michael Pollan
- Get Mental Health in Order- eliminating/reducing all potential stressors in your life works WONDERS
- Sleep Early and Often- my favorite in the whole list as it's the challenge I tackle regularly, and will continue to battle.

I was reading an email I got today from one of my mentors, Todd Durkin. In it, he talked about taking action, yet accepting imperfection. It was such a great email I wanted to share a piece of it with you, as it certainly motivated me! Check it out here:
"And while I prefer to do my daily 'To Do' List the night before, you get the idea of the importance of taking ACTION on the most important things on your list FIRST. Accept that you will be busy, but stay focused on what's most important. First, give priority to your workouts and eating right. This will help fight the stress and anxiety associated with the many other items you must complete. That's great advice as we continue to march toward the holiday season and year-end. For now, permit yourself to be imperfect, slow down, and enjoy this wonderful time of the year. And if you continue to find yourself busy: Be busy doing the right things!"

"Sustainable is about eating in season with foods grown naturally and raised humanely, ideally within a 100-mile radius of your home. Health benefits come with choosing locally-grown, in-season foods. Without the need for long transportation, fruits and veggies can be eaten just-picked, at the peak of ripeness, ensuring freshness and maximum nutritional value. Organic, pesticide-free produce may also be higher in antioxidants. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals and protect the body's cells from oxidative stress, assisting in disease prevention. Buying from a local farm also fosters a relationship between consumers and their food. See www.sustainabletable.org."
