3. Eat real food

Real food is anything you can buy and consume in its natural state, it is unrefined and unprocessed and does not contain added ingredients, such as salt, simple carbohydrates, or fat.

Real foods are rich in nutrients, contain fewer calories and are more filling than most processed foods.

Everything from clear thinking to good decision making, proper digestion to high performance is heavily dependent on getting good quality sleep.

More than a third of adults get fewer than 7 hours of sleep each night, the minimum needed to keep your risk of health problems in check.

Most people need 7-9 hours of sleep per night. If you are getting less, slowly try adding a bit more - even just 30 minutes can make a difference.
