Eat Move Sleep: How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes

If I were to tell you that you can enjoy big changes by making small choices, would you be interested? I would.

Even though I work from home and have the flexibility to manage my time wisely, I end up staying up late most days. I am conscious about a healthy lifestyle, yet there are times when I end up slacking off. And that can become an easy habit to cultivate. My first wake-up call was when I turned 50 last September. I thought, hey, here’s a major milestone in my life and I must deliberately make sure I eat healthy, stay active and get enough sleep.

But adopting a healthy habit especially when loaded with work can be challenging. Since I was generally healthy, it was easy to miss my walk and focus on some urgent work.

Then my second wake-up call came when I was diagnosed with diabetes. This time I listened. Fear is a crazy thing and can achieve what other feelings cannot, sometimes. I resolved to live healthy, eat healthy.Vidya Sury Eat Move Sleep (1)

The book Eat Move Sleep is that wake up call. It is full of practical ideas to better your chances for a longer, healthier and naturally, more fulfilling life.
Bestselling author Tom Rath has inspired millions over the last decade with his valuable advice and in his latest book “Eat Move Sleep” offers the reader a brand new lifestyle option.

When the reward is health via natural means and simple changes, who can say no?

You’ll understand the Eat Move Sleep equation easily. Here’s what it suggests:

Start the day with a healthy breakfast to stay active through the day. This boosts your appetite, helping you eat better.

Eating the right foods and staying active, in turn, promotes sound sleep.

Most of us can identify with the fact that when we don’t sleep well, we have this craving for unhealthy food that makes us sluggish and prevents us from being active. From there, the day plummets to new lows.

In his book, Tom Rath has some great tips to overcome these three elements – food, activity and sleep. When we tackle them together, instead of individually, the chances of success are high.

The book has 30 chapters and each one offers three research based findings and ends with three ideas that you can implement right away. Even if you use one idea a day for a month – that’s 30 days – it is a great start to making the right choices.

We’ve heard the phrase “health is wealth” all our lives. We know that to live a long, healthy life, we must eat well, be active and get enough sleep. But we are so carried away by our busy lifestyles that it is all too easy to slip up. Eat Move Sleep brings home how eating moving and sleeping impacts our health and offers specific action points to help us make small adjustments to our daily routine.

If you are ready to change how you think, feel, and act every day through better choices, this book is for you. It is all about how you eat move sleep well today to have more energy, better relationships, and enjoy more productivity at work and in your personal life.

I would summarize the book Eat Move Sleep with the following takeaways:

  • Ditch those fad diets.
  • Resolve to be more active
  • Slleep longer to get more done
  • Feast at sunrise, fast at sunset
  • Smaller plates, smaller waistline
  • Encourage everyone at home to appreciate the importance of sleep
  • Avoid the sleep medication so you can sleep better
  • More than just exercise or working out thrice a week, it is being active throughout the day is what keeps you healthy

    If I don’t have a good night’s sleep, my entire day goes for a toss. It doesn’t have to be too many hours, just some hours of good quality, deep slumber to feel refreshed. This book looks like a must read!!
