Rule 2: Take Care of Yourself

  • Start intermittent fasting. Fasting offers a bunch of health benefits. Start with something manageable like a 16:8 fast (16 hours fasting/8 hour feeding window). I’ve been doing this for about 10 years and have experienced great health benefits.
  • Walking. Walking offers health and psychological benefits. It’s the easiest and cheapest way to introduce exercise into your life. It’s also sustainable- something you can put in place for the rest of your life. I need to do more of this.
  • Reading/Writing/Learning. Give your brain a workout. Do mentally-demanding tasks. Like the previous tips, “use it or lose it” applies here. This is one way to do it, but there are many ways to keep the brain engaged.
