12 Steps to Wellness

I received this in an email from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and it's by Joshua Rosenthal, IIN Founder and Director.  He called them the 12 Steps to Wellness:

1.    Drink more water
2.    Practice cooking
3.    Increase whole grains
4.    Increase sweet vegetables
5.    Increase leafy green vegetables
6.    Experiment with protein
7.    Eat less meat, dairy, sugar and chemicalized, artificial junk foods; consume less coffee, alcohol and tobacco
8.    Develop easy and reliable habits to nurture your body
9.    Have healthy relationships that support you
10.  Find physical activity you enjoy and do it regularly
11.  Find work you love or a way to love the work you have
12.  Develop a spiritual practice

Do you agree or disagree?  Is there anything you would add to these steps?

  1. Desperately trying to get my husband to follow some kinda resemblance of most of these 12 steps. He's not cooperating right now. He eats doughnuts for nighttime snack. Ugh.

  2. My hubby's problem is NOT eating. I have that same problem some days, where the day flies by and I think... damn, I only had coffee today! Finding some kind of balance is so hard. I'm no saint, that's for sure! lol
