Eat Move Sleep

Eat Move Sleep by Tom Rath

I bought this book, because it was recommended when I was in a seminar on stress management.  This might appear to be an odd recommendation, since the book is about eating better, moving more, and sleeping better; however the book points out that the combination of all three things improving is what helps you have a healthier life and be able to handle stress better.

What was one of the most appealing things about this book is the small chapters.  Each chapter gives an idea or suggestion on ways to eat better and why, ways to move more and how it is beneficial, and how sleeping can help both of those things.  I was pleasantly surprised with some of the suggestions and ideas.  There was hardly anything new or life changing that I had not heard before, but the way he packaged it made it seem manageable to change.  When you hear about new studies and the results of them, it also sounds like it would be hard to incorporate them into your daily life; however the author manages to make suggestions on how it is possible.

One of the small things I found myself doing after reading one of the early chapters was pacing back and forth while I was reading the remainder of this book.  The title of the book says it all, small choices can result in big changes.  The way the information was presented really makes it seem manageable to incorporate more ways to be healthier.

There are some mentions of other products that Tom Rath has, such as his app to help tack your changes (but it is free), you can either ignore those or try them out to see if it will help you make changes.
