Here is my top ten list of lifestyle ideals to work towards:
Sleep: getting 6 to 8 hours per night, as close to the natural circadian rythyms of the sun as possible, is almost a must for your body to function correctly. Shortchange yourself here, and the effects cascade throughout all the other improvements you are trying to accomplish.
Stress: reduce as much as possible – remember the book title “Don’t sweat the small stuff (and it is all small stuff)”. Yoga and meditation are two excellent strategies to help, but just keeping perspective will go a long way.
Sitting too much: this would appear to be the new big thing raging across the alternative health community and now bleeding into the mainstream health community as well. I think the jury may still be out and to say definitively it is as dangerous as smoking may or may not be going to far. I do think it prudent to limit sitting if you can, and try to stand up and move for at least five minutes out of every hour. This is one I have work to do on myself!
Value Relationships: every study I have seen on this topic indicates folks do better as they age when their social network is robust.
Keep mentally challenged: There is no doubt in my mind that it is a “use it or lose it” proposition. If you want to avoid dementia in your older years then always be learning or embarking on a new journey of some kind.
Diet: see the Diet Philosophy page
Exercise: see the My Exercise Program page. Bottom line, move some, do some strength, balance, and flexibility training, and your body will thank you for it and respond accordingly.
Play: have fun every once in a while, for Pete’s sake! It is important to just do something you enjoy, and not feel bad about it.
Create your life, don’t passively live someone else’s: TV, Movies, Celebrities and Sports seem to be the Great American Pastime, I suggest it may be wise to take them in moderate doses and not make them the focus of your recreational time.
Live for today: the past is gone, and the future may never come. It is important to be mindfully aware of your existence and maximizing your ‘today”, while still learning from the past and planning for the future in a constructive way.

"Tami and Michelle were very helpful in the difficult processes of selling my Mother-In-Laws home. We were looking for someone aggressive and that is what we got, I was impressed with Tami from the phone! She was great in setting up getting the house "show ready" as we had to go back to Michigan and leave the details to her and Michelle, we were not disappointed. We asked for a few pictures to be moved around on Zillow and Michelle took care of it right away. I liked how the team worked together to take care of all our needs. (We had a few) I would highly recommend Tami and her team and am confident they will take great care of you, just as they did us. "
