If I want to be on top of my game, energetic, happy, nice, patient, healthy, and clear-headed, I need to EAT HEALTHY FOOD, GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP, AND EXERCISE. It’s that simple.
I’m also a sucker for lists. So, when I came across these three seperate “Rules Lists” I wanted to “capture them” for future reference.
- Food Rules: Your Dietary Do’s and Don’ts by Michael Pollan, New York Times Magazine Food Issue, October 11, 2009. Earlier in the year Michael posted a request for readers’ rules on Tara Parker-Pope’s Well blog. He received 2,500 responses, and offered his favorite 20 in this issue. Click here for Pollan’s full list. He has recently published a short-useful-funny paperback–with 64 short simple rules–’Food Rules. An Eater’s Manual‘ based on his now famous saying; “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly Plants.” For a short interview about the book, click here. I’ve provided a “mash-up” of my favorites. Some from NYT’s readers and some from Michael’s book.
- Sleep Tips: How to Sleep Better, Lose Weight, and Live Longer by Mark Hyman, MD, practicing physician and pioneer in functional medicine. Huffington Post, Jan. 9, 2010. Click here for the full list.
