“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver” – Mahatma Gandhi


1)     Eat more fruit and vegetables (mix colours)

These are the foundation in any great diet.

2)     Walk more

3)     Learn how to breathe properly

This one sounds obvious but many of us take breaths that are too shallow.

4)     Sprint once in a while

5)     Strength train

Bodyweight, kettlebells, dumbbells – whatever your preferred weapon of choice.

6)     If you eat meat/fish make it organic and responsibly sourced as much as possible

7)     Sleep well

8)     Make exercise a constant in your life

9)     Exercise mind and body

10)   Processed food is out, food in its natural state is in

11)   Take the stairs more

12)   Know when to take a break

13)   Lose yourself in your favourite music

14)   Smile more

15)   Rest

16)   Play

17)   Learn how to deal with stress

18)   Let love into your life

19)   Let anger, jealousy and resentment out of your life

20)   Compare less

21)   Find a hobby and make time for it

22)   Put the smartphone down for 5 minutes

23)   Make time for the important people in your life

24)   Less email

25)   More living and experiences


This is a quick-fire list so we may well revisit some areas in more detail in future.  You will also have your own areas to add and the list really only gets started at 25 but this should give you some food for thought.
