Habits: Set your routine: We are creatures of habit, so make them good ones.
Elimination: This pertains to metabolic waste as well as toxic aspects of your life, such as relationships, work environments, and excuses: There are a million excuses for why we can’t do something, but none of them are as good as the reason to do it.
Activity: Stay in motion: We are not meant to be sedentary so get your butt moving! It doesn’t have to be 30 min 3X per week but it is about the discipline to stay in motion; conditioning will come with this habit.

Thinking: Link your thinking to your actions and your actions to your thinking:
- a. Your body’s patterns of behavior are linked to the way you think and the opposite is also true.
- b. If you’re not feeling great that day, go do something that makes you feel great, i.e.: hobbies, exercise or reading read a fun book
Heal: Let your body heal and rest. Take the necessary time off and take the time to rehab an injury correctly. Jumping back in too soon only leads to further injuries and less productive performance. Don’t forget to get enough sleep: Sleep is the time when your body heals
Y: “Why” & Comply
1. Don’t just accept that you have an issue; ask yourself and your doctor why is this happening and what are we doing that is causing/has caused health issues to occur.
2. If you don’t get a satisfactory answer, fire your doctor! “Satisfactory” does not mean the answer you want to hear, by the way.
3. Comply! Once you have received your answers, follow through with the prescribed treatment plan. That is your obligation as the patient.
