  1. Drink a glass of water with a squeeze of lemon in it as soon as you wake up.
  2. After your glass of lemon water jump up and down like you’re jumping rope for 30 seconds.
  3. Walk 5,000 steps minimum everyday, working your way towards 10,000 daily.
  4. Try adding some inconvenient movements to your day.
  5. Stop eating sugar and dairy for 14 days and tune in to the difference it makes in your body.
  6. Walk barefoot on the earth everyday.
  7. Swim in the ocean as much as possible.
  8. Eat as close to nature as possible. That means removing processed foods from your diet and increasing your intake of fresh, raw fruit and vegetables.
  9. Try Wim Hof breathing.
