New York Times bestselling author Jay Papasan has had his fair share of health and wellness challenges throughout his life. Like many of us, he grew up understanding that working out and staying active was an important part of achieving optimal health, but he didn’t pay much attention to the other fundamentally important factors: diet and sleep quality, healthy habits and willpower.

That is, until he got older and began suffering from back problems. Today, on FitFluential Radio, Jay shares his transformation story with us as well as his actionable advice on how anyone can begin their journey toward optimal health and what inspired him to co-author the New York Times bestselling book, The One Thing.

The Takeaway:

Set your phone aside. Don’t let that be the first thing you do in the morning. Instead, have a healthy breakfast, meditate, read, do something simple that will positively impact your health. Let that be your morning ritual and see if that doesn’t set the dominoes down a different run.
