green tea [1]With only two more weeks left in our Better Body, More Energy challenge [2], I hope a lot of exciting things have started happening for you! Maybe you’re experiencing abundant energy (or at least more energy), a new outlook on health, or a brand new consciousness about your body. Maybe your day starts with a glass of water [3] instead of caffeinated soda, and even if that is the change you take away from all of this, then I am happy you have made that progress!

Week 9 assignment: Embrace the three T’s

There are lots of little things that can add up to better health and well-being. Here are three — all beginning with the letter T!

1. Drink green TEA a few times a day. If you are a big coffee drinker, try swapping some of your coffees for green tea, which has less caffeine [4], making it less stressful on your body (while still giving you a boost). Green tea has many benefits, and one of them is that it can aid in raising your metabolism. It also contains antioxidants which strengthen the immune system and slow the aging process. And, green tea can help combat food cravings [5]. All wins!

2. Get some TANJA! I know it sounds silly to plug myself, but I promise it’s all to benefit you! What I’m suggesting is that you get one of my DVDs [6] — or any of Gaiam’s fitness DVDs [7] that you don’t have — to add a new challenge to your workout routine. You can also find hundreds of fitness videos on GaiamTV.com [8]. Make a change, get inspired, turn it up a notch!

3. TRY something new. Invest in a new book or a DVD about something you are curious about. How to read horoscopes, Asian cooking, how to build a tree house — anything that tickles your intellect and makes you think [9]. Sometimes even 20 minutes is enough to give your brain cells a boost. Learning creates insight and strengthens your self image in so many ways.

Congrats on making it this far — You’re almost there! Let me know how it goes and Live Life Loud [10]!
