This week I dive into what my 10 non-negotiable practices are daily, weekly and monthly to help me THRIVE.

(23.16) Number 8, I discuss how alcohol impacts my body and how I feel, so minimising its consumption definitely makes me THRIVE in my health and vitality
(25.00) Number 9, is doing some productivity work each day that I love with passion and purpose (of course having rest days)…but not working myself TO the bone, and not doing nothing day in and out…so a nice balance between the two
(25.58) Number 10, is having acupuncture once a month for my health and wellness
