Experiment and tailor your lifestyle to fit your needs and objectives. Regardless, here’s where we recommend starting.

12 THINGS THAT WORK
1. Maintain quality body position (starting with posture).
2. Breathe clean air and drink clean water (especially filtered tap water).
3. In meals include vegetables of different colors (especially dark leafy greens and cruciferous) and healthy fats (from nuts, nut butters, avocado, and extra virgin olive oil).
4. Move every day, ideally including some intensity (breathing hard) and loading (jumping, weights, gymnastics).
5. Sleep 7-9 hours per night, ideally with consistent bedtimes.
6. Take responsibility to use technology well (including limiting screen time and to facilitate human interaction).
7. Take risks strategically, avoiding those with little upside (like chemicals that cause cancer or disrupt hormones).
8. Have decent hygiene (wash hands, handle food with care, sneeze into your elbow, etc.) without becoming a total germaphobe.
9. Brush, floss, and visit the dentist to prevent gum inflammation or cavities.
10. Pay attention to how things make you feel, where your food and other stuff comes from, and how your actions affect other people and living things.
11. Seek ways to minimize waste/pollution and to maximize the health of plants, animals, and soil.
12. Support others’ efforts in these areas to increase collaboration and impact.
