One of the first questions I’m asked when health and fitness comes up is this: What do you do? However, it’s asked in a manner that people are hoping I have a live in personal chef, a secret helicopter pad where Gunnar Peterson flies into each day, and some sort of miracle pill that is flown in from Hungary. Well, I am sure someone out there actually does all the above, but definitely not me. Fortunately, one thing I am a firm believer in, is that it’s simple.

If you want to feel great, which usually has an awesome side effect of looking pretty darn great, well…I suggest doing the following regularly, until they all turn into a habit:

Get 8 hours of sleep
Drink lots of water
Be active
Life weights (aka do some sort of resistance training)
And finally…eat clean.

What tends to complicate things…is us. We all have a crazy, frequently used superhuman power: the ability to make an excuse. And we are all experts at it when it comes the the health and fitness department. Save the excuses for justifying a new bikini purchase. Not when it comes to justifying your 4th Super Big Gulp of the week (Guilty as charged.)

So, let’s raise our 8oz glass of water and say cheers to simple, steady, it’s a way of life, good health.

The more aloha print you have in your life, the happier you will be. Yes you read that. Aloha print guarantees happiness. Well, at least in my world it does.
Think about it. When you have an opportunity to wear something that is of the aloha print genre, it usually signifies the following: 1: You are on vacation, 2: You are doing something fun, 3: You are in Hawaii, 4: You probably do not have shoes on, or 5: you are in a good mood. That’s one winning combo of options there, in my aloha print loving opinion.
So if you are feeling blue, pick up a garment or accessory that is laden with plumerias, palms, hibiscus, or some sort of tropical flora, and feel that frown turn upside down…and one hand reach for a cold tropical drink.

Whenever in doubt, take the vacation. Please. And although tropical, hot, sandy vacations, with an abundance of freshly cut cold coconuts, are always appreciated, I know they aren’t always in the budget. But hey, if you have time off of work, take it. Go on a road trip, take a staycation, keep your eyes peeled on the travelzoo top 20 list (killer deals), subscribe to Groupon/Living Social travel emails (I found an all inclusive resort in Costa Rica…get this, 2 people, 3 nights $280. I missed the deal, but still.) Travel is possible, both near and far.

So, let’s all make an effort to take time to get away and relax. Even for just one day, or afternoon…or hour.

You know the saying, “I need some air”. Well, odds are, you really do. Humans are made to love being outside. Just think of how great you feel after going for a walk, taking a nap in a park, reading a book under a tree, a day at the beach (that’s a no brainer), eating outside, or switching up things so your workout is outside. Fresh air is kind of sweet like that. It’s an instant mood lifter.

So, make it a point to go get some fresh air, not just if you are feeling sick or have the spins, but as a daily way to make your overall well being better. Rain or shine, beach or no beach. Fresh air is fresh air. So get out from behind a screen, put that phone down, and go get some.
