Diet-wise, I don’t eat crap, and I don’t eat a lot of packaged foods. I could easily be vegetarian, but it’s not practical with my family. I try to be 80 percent good 80 percent of the time. Sometimes I’ll do a cleanse for three days, but I don’t do any of those weird things like, 'I eat only lychee nuts!' I drink green tea, but I had to stop drinking as much caffeine as I used to. I had stomach issues, so coffee—especially on an empty stomach—doesn’t really agree with me. Tequila, though, kills all the bugs.
There's no one thing I swear by with food, but I am a big fan of dry brushing. It exfoliates—you can see your skin flying off everywhere. It’s great if it’s the winter and you’re drier. They say it’s really good for circulation and lymphatic drainage, too. The bristles on a dry body brush are pretty firm so it takes some time to get used to, but I just love the way it feels.

You have it easily in your power to increase the sum total of this world’s happiness now. How? By giving a few words of sincere appreciation to someone who is lonely or discouraged. Perhaps you will forget tomorrow the kind words you say today, but the recipient may cherish them over a lifetime.
– Dale Carnegie, American writer
I used to go and hide in bed whenever I felt unwell or got bad news from a doctor, but I found that sitting alone with my negative thoughts really didn’t help me, so now I’ll book a massage, a facial, a restorative yoga class and anything else that will boost my body and mind. I go back to basics with my food and eat a lot of greens, drink a lot of water, etc. and just really focus all my energy on making positive decisions that will help my body. It’s not always easy, but feeling like you’re being proactive in your recovery does wonders!

Many people worry so much about managing their careers, but rarely spend half that much energy managing their LIVES. I want to make my life, not just my job, the best it can be. The rest will work itself out.
