1. Breathing - As babies we know subconsciously how to breathe properly. But as we grow into adults our breathing patterns often become shortened and more shallow. This is mainly due to the hectic nature of our lifestyles, which often puts us into a "fight or flight" stress pattern for extended periods of time.
     
  2. Rest - Research that has made the connection between regular sleep patterns and your health is hard to ignore.
     
  3. Diet - Food is an incredibly powerful drug, which is why it`s important that each individual works out which combination of proteins, carbohydrates and fats for every meal is best for his/her optimal health and wellbeing
     
  4. Hydration - In order to maintain good levels of energy, concentration and digestive function it`s important to drink good clean, filtered water on a regular basis. Paul Chek of the CHEK Institute recommends the following formula in order to calculate the amount of water you need: 0.033 x Your weight in kilograms = litres of water to drink per day. In order for you to look and feel great on the outside you need to maintain a good level of hydration on the inside.
     
  5. Exercise - Regular exercise will improve your body shape, protect your heart from disease, strengthen your joints and bones and relieve stress. An essential factor to successfully incorporating any exercise program permanently into your lifestyle is enjoyment. Without the enjoyment your exercise program will be just another chore on your to-do list.
     
  6. Thoughts - The first thing you do when you wake up is think. It might not be anything profound other than realizing you desperately need to go to the bathroom. However, some would agree that your very first thoughts upon waking will determine your mood for the rest of the day - be it upbeat or downcast. This in turn will have quite a serious impact on the quality of the decisions you make.
