50 tweaks and truths for better living.

Here’s an honest-to-goodness truth – life becomes better as you start to think and feel more optimistically about life.

You should never underestimate the power of a little fine-tuning. A tweak here and there can have a significant improvement on your happiness, health and longevity.

Optimal living is not out of reach. You already know you have to work for the things that mean the most to you. It all comes down to the decision to do so.

Be attentive to your needs and desires.

Practice making small + daily adjustments that will help you create a better life for yourself. It can be as simple as going to bed 10 minutes earlier, eating an extra serving of salad or having a meaningful conversation without distraction. 

Take these 50 truths for a test drive and see for yourself.
