What gets you out of bed every morning?
My goals. I am obsessed with accomplishing my life goals.
What is your #1 wellness habit?
Exercise. I just feel that the benefits are unlimited.
What is your favorite part about living a healthy lifestyle?
My favorite part about living a healthy lifestyle is the response I get from others. People are amazed I am as old as I am and as active as I am.
If you could give one piece of health advice to your kids, what would it be and why?
Stay active. Never completely retire or stop living and moving. Keep your mind and body young and fit by playing chess and exercising.
Who’s daily routine would you most love to see?
I would love to see Tony Robbins’ routine. To put on seminars back-to-back of 12 hour days is amazing.
Describe your sleep ritual.
I brush my teeth, floss, and I use a Eucalyptus spray on my sheets every night- this helps me relax. I sometimes eat a peppermint and that helps my mouth feel refreshed.
What’s your biggest wellness challenge?
My biggest wellness challenge is actually eating enough throughout the day. I am trying to gain lean muscle mass and I need to add more calories to my diet.
What about your “O” do you think is unique?
I think my schedule is unique because it shows that you don’t have to neglect personal goals while upkeeping work goals. There are enough hours in the day to accomplish what’s important.
