    Fantasticly simple. With the addition of 3 cups of
    Espresso a day and music the list is complet. Thanks
    again for reminding me sit still and shed the day.

  2. Great list. I would also add “Move” or “Walk”. There are many times when I feel like just sitting around, writing or reading, but on Saturday I took two work breaks – one to rake the garden, and another to take a long walk. Both times I was left stimulated to do more work, and felt more at ease.

  3. Courtney,
    Great list post! I love the eat colors not calories!And it is so much more than just eat right and exercise. My goal is not to lose weight (although that would be a great side effect!) but to be healthy. I’ve heard it said that some people die by the time they are 50, they just wait another 10 or 20 years to stop breathing! I don’t want to be that person!

  4. Hi!
    I love this list. It is true a lot of these tips are common sense but it is sometime so important to be reminded of what is simple and yet important.

    Thank you


  5. Excellent list. I would add “maintain a beginner’s mind”. I think curiosity and willingness to try (and fail) without expectations of perfection do wonders for my mental well being. I recently heard Jane Fonda say that rather than striving for perfection, we should strive to be our authentic selves, which I think is exactly what your blog’s message is, too!

  6. I’d add the occasional glass of wine. Hopefully in the company of a good friend.

  7. You brought up some great points Courtney. It is amazing that if one would take heed to your list and put it into action, they would experience a welcomed lifestyle change.

    All valuable tips, Courtney. Thanks. For when the body or mind needs a little extra nudge, community acupuncture can be a great, minimalist way to stay healthy. This piece explains a lot about it:

  9. Thanks Courtney, I needed this. Had a craving tonight and baked a sugary white cake. What’s wrong with me? Back on track tomorrow. Except the darn thing is now sitting in my fridge taunting me. P90X tomorrow and I shall not have my cake and eat it too. You are an inspiration!
