Pay attention while you eat.  For one meal today…Turn off the TV.  Don’t look at, talk on, or read your phone…resist the ding.  Sit at a table.  And eat.  Pay attention not only to your levels of hunger and fullness, but also to your satiety.  It does not matter how many calories you have eaten, if you didn’t eat anything that really satisfied you, then you may find yourself continuing to think about food and searching for another taste of “something”.

Think about your posture.  If you spend a lot of time hunched over a desk, make an effort to stretch your back in the opposite direction for a few minutes periodically throughout the day.

Take a moment to be grateful…it is the antidote for anxiety.

Plan for a good night’s sleep…that means 7.5 – 9 hours.  A tall order this day in age and in our culture, but worth every extra minute in increased productivity, improved mood, better concentration, increased energy, decreased sugar cravings, and a better quality of life all around.

Your Mountain is waiting. So… get on your way!
