The most important thing in your life is your health: without it you have nothing else.

Why wait until the second to last day of our journey to focus on it? Because we had to declutter our lives first. That’s the point of this entire journey: to strip away the superfluous so we can focus on what’s important. Now that we’ve stripped away the excess, we’ll focus on the most important thing in life: our health.

To improve our physical health we must focus on two main areas: diet and exercise. Check out both links below to read our detailed plans for each area:
