When I am invited to make small choices so I can enjoy big changes in my life, I accept—especially if it comes like an answer to a prayer.
Burning the midnight oil has become a habit with me and though I am conscious about healthy habits, I was obviously losing my grip. I recently turned 50, and I knew I must worry. I wished for a strong nudge to motivate me to revert to a healthy lifestyle.
Eat Move Sleep offers exactly that and delivers on its promise with practical ideas to improve your odds of a longer, healthier and more fulfilling life. Bestselling author Tom Rath, who has a reputation for inspiring millions over the last decade with his words, presents the reader with a whole new lifestyle option. Who can say “No” to making simple changes when the reward is natural health?
The Eat, Move, Sleep Equation is easy to solve and interpret. You start your day with a healthy breakfast to increase your odds of being active. This helps you eat well. When you eat the right foods and stay active, you sleep soundly.
If you don’t sleep well, you crave unhealthy food and can’t be active. This adds up to making your day go downhill.
Tom Rath shows how you can ace all three elements in a number of ways. By tackling them together, rather than only addressing one at a time, you increase your chances of success.
There are 30 chapters in the book. Each chapter has three research-based findings and concludes with three ideas that you can apply in your life. If you challenge yourself to use even one idea per day for a month [30 days] you can be well on your way to making good decisions for yourself.
With hectic lifestyles being the order of the day, every individual has to make wise choices and good decisions to ensure a long and healthy life. That we all need to eat healthy, be active and get enough sleep is no secret. We all understand that health is wealth. Eat Move Sleep shows us the impact of eating, moving and sleeping on our life and offers specific action points to help us make small adjustments to our daily routine.
This book can change how you think, feel, and act every day, regardless of your age and help you make better choices.
Eat, move and sleep well today to have more energy tomorrow, better relationships, be more productive at work and in your community.
