Having noticed a ton of “list’s for life” such as “Top 10 things to do in Denver” “Top 5 reasons your WOD’s are not improving” in all the media, we are going to piggy back off this sensation.
 
Top 10 Things to Keep You Healthy
 
1. Sleep!! Get 8 -10 hours of sleep a night. Your body rebuilds itself each night and needs rest to replenish those muscle fibers. Sleep also helps with memory, creativity, and reduces stress.
 
2. Sweat everyday.  In CrossFit or outside in our beautiful state, move your body.  It controls mood swings, eases pain, improves your immunity, and keeps you around longer for more fun.  
 
3. Eat to fuel, not to be full. Think of your body as a highly tuned machine. Are you going to put diesel or high octane fuel in your? All you need is: “Lean meats, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.” Eat you breakfast! Skipping breakfast has been shown to increase your LDL (bad cholesterol) level.
 
4. Mobilize and take care of your body. In laymans terms, your body is a system of ropes, pulleys, levers, and extensors that work in unison to move your body. If a “pulley” is bound up, you will have shortened your range of motion of a “rope”.  Whether it’s regular couch stretch sessions, massages, or bodywork every little bit goes far.
 
5. Be social. Whether it is looking people up on the book of Face, or being twitterpated on Twitter. But nothing beats a good old fashion meet up for coffee or having a little dinner party.
 
6. Goals, goals and goals. Have goals for the day: I will eat veggies at every meal today. Short term goals: I will deadlift 450# in 6 months. And long term goals: I will save enough money for a new car next year! Make sure that they attainable and achievable to be successful.
  
7. Have 1+ hour that is electronics-free per day. One study showed that people check there phone or computer 110 to 150 times a day. Crazy, right?!?
 
8. Stay hydrated. From flushing out those nasty toxins from happy hour to keeping your skin looking beautiful, water is essential. Drink at least 64oz a day.
9. Do the deed. Getting frisky in the bedroom is not only fun, but good for you?  It can reduce stress, blood pressure, and the risk of a heart attack. 
 
10. Do what you love in your profession and at home.  Spend time with friends and family as possible.
