The 8 Simple Rules

SLEEP

I have been chronically sleep deprived for…forever maybe? I have never had healthy sleep habits. If you have kids or are a performing or touring artist, or are most people, it’s likely you are sleep deprived, too. I’ll go into more about sleep later.

WATER

I know I know I know I know how important water is. WHY is it so HARD for me to actually drink it all day? More about water in detail to come.

MEDICATION

Again, this seems obvious and probably “should” be easier than it is.

EXERCISE

This topic is a doozy. I love exercise. I alternate between not making time and trying to do way too much. Starting very realistic and planning tiny incremental changes.

EAT WELL

The biggest question of them all. What does eating well mean? For this rule, I am also starting with small changes.

REDUCE STRESS

Trying to calm myself and ground myself is new to me. I’m only asking myself to do 5 min to start.

TRACK/JOURNAL/BLOG

My accountability tool and record of my progress. I am committed to do this, even if it’s a bit clunkier than I would like as I form the habit!
