- Eat dark chocolate. Make it > 80% cacao, make it raw, and definitely make it organic!
- Practice yoga. Here's just one pose that I happen to love!
- Take phosphatidyl serine, 400 mg once per day. While you're at it, take omega-3s, 2000 mg once or twice per day.
- Chi walking! This is a cross between Tai Chi and Walking - and it can help you burn more calories, bank your energy, and prevent injury.
- Light a candle and stare at it for 3 minutes.
- Put yourself on a screen curfew after 7 pm -- screens (TV, tablets, laptops) rob you of melatonin and disrupt your inner clock.

- Holy basil. I like to add the powder to my breakfast shake!
