      3. Do the things you love. Optimal health can be greatly influenced by our day to day activities. Try this simple excersice, today before or while doing something ask yourself how it makes you feel and make a note. At the end of the day see how many of your activities bring joy into your life, hopefuly at least half your day is spent doing things you love.

Nurturing your relationships is a great way to nourish your life.

      5. Be kind to yourself. Sometimes it is easier to be kind to others than to ourselfs but self deprecation can be as harmful as any disease. Before making an unkind remark or engaging in self destructive behaviors ask yourself if you would direct that towards a loved one, if the answer is no perhaps you should reconsider doing it. Treat yourself with love and all things will fall into place.
