An everyday guide to happiness

By Lisa Marshall | Director Wild Women On Top

10 things to do every day for 10 weeks:

  1. Wake up and spend ten minutes in a quiet place stretching and breathing, focusing only on the moment and keeping your mind clear of all thoughts.

  2. 10 push ups, 10 crunches, 10 squats x 2 rounds.

  3. Drink 10 glasses of purified water a day.

  4. Do not eat/drink these ten things and get rid of them if they’re in your pantry and fridge: sugar, white flour, preservatives, bottled sauces, take aways, margarine, fizzy drinks, anything with a number in the ingredients, processed meats, anything containing thickeners.

  5. Eat a selection of the following power foods: blueberries, oranges, almonds, plain yoghurt, spinach, tomatoes, fish, celery, cacao, coconut, good quality fats/butter.

  6. Write down your most important goals for the next ten weeks and read them every day – stick them somewhere you can’t miss them!

  7. Give someone you love a hug – for at least ten seconds!

  8. Exercise every day and make it count by being present.

  9. Wake up and commit to ten hours of being positive – avoid telling yourself you feel tired, angry or lazy – because that’s how your day will turn out!

  10. Read something inspiring for ten minutes a day.

You'll be amazed at how good you feel.
