Yes, this seems like a lot of ground to cover in one article, but I am committed. It is going to happen for you!

Create healthy habits, not restrictions.


I want to show you how simple it is to get started improving your health in ten days, with ten very simple and effective health boosting practices. I won’t ask for more than ten minutes of your time each day.

You don’t need a gym membership, equipment, complicated instructions, or money.

Without further adieu:

  • Commit to a couple minutes of movement for every half hour you have been sitting. Sitting has been referred to as the new smoking. Your muscles and heart will thank you for the activity. Stretch, move, stretch.
  • Commit to drinking more water. I am not going to give a number. Do your best. Keep hydrated by slowing increasing your water consumption. Think of your dry droopy houseplants for incentive. You too will perk up.
  • Commit to a few minutes of deep belly breathing. Deep belly breathing relaxes, cleanses and rejuvenates. I could go on and on about the wonders of deep breathing. Try it.

If you know the art of deep breathing, you have the strength, wisdom and courage of ten tigers.

Chinese adage

  • Commit to a five minute daily stroll around your neighborhood or kitchen. It doesn’t matter. Five minutes for ten days and see where it takes you. You may start to form a healthy habit. You may even enjoy it.
  • Commit to banishing negative thoughts. Replace every bad one with a good one. Practice makes perfect. Make it a game. Make stuff up. Your outlook is guaranteed to improve
  • Commit to gratitude. Upon waking, think of five things for which you are truly thankful. Write them down if you wish. Do this every morning. It takes five seconds. It can be as simple as being thankful for your purple toothbrush.
  • Commit to giving your body a break. Once a week try an intermittent fast. Eat your dinner and don’t…
