CLEAN HEALTH: Avoid Fad Diet!

The secret to weight loss is not to avoid carbs, fats, yellow foods, solid foods, or foods that start with the letter G. The real trick is to lower your daily intake by about 100 calories. You'll hardly notice, but it'll add up to a loss of about 10 pounds in a year.
Calorie restriction has been shown to lengthen life (in rats and monkeys). I cut back once a year to reset my appetite and tastebuds. Healthy food tastes great afterward. Frankly, any food would.

CLEAN HEALTH: Sniff Rosemary

According to some research, catching a whiff of this aromatic herb may increase alertness and improve memory.

Paper is up to 70 percent of a typical office’s waste, so simple measures to reduce unnecessary use can significantly lower your organization’s waste removal expenses--not to mention purchasing costs.

Use both sides. Keep a tray on your desk to collect any single-side printed scrap paper that comes your way and use it for note paper, or in the photocopier or fax machine. Format documents to avoid printing unnecessary pages and proofread carefully on screen to avoid printing multiple copies. Keep a paper recycling box next to your desk and encourage colleagues to separate paper from organic waste and recyclable containers.

CLEAN EARTH- Get Your Coffee Fix?

Small things can make a big difference. Consider your humble cup of coffee, the world’s second-most valuable legal commodity after oil, with environmental and social impacts to match.

Stir up some positive change by asking your barista and/or office manager to switch to organic and Fair Trade-labeled brands. Then do your bit to reduce the energy and waste involved in producing transporting, and disposing of more than 1.9 million tons of paper and plastic cups and plates thrown away in the U.S. each year: use your own mug. You need to wash it, sure, but life cycle analysis shows that over its life of about 3,000 uses a mug is associated with 30 times less solid waste and 60 times less air pollution than the equivalent drinks in a disposable paper or foam cups.

Laughing not only eases stress, promotes social bonding, and lowers blood pressure, it may also boost your immune system. 

So bring some humor into your life, whether it's through friends or even a new TV show (preferably mine).
