I have recommended this audiobook to many friends. There are multiple reasonsI have recommend this book: 1) The book is broken down in a manner that makes it easy to implement Tom's recommendations for living a better life, 2) The material is straightforward, easy to understand, and research based, 3) Tom does a phenomenal job of providing memorable phrases that immediately impact the reader and are easy to remember such as "if you want to do more, sleep more."
Tom does a phenomenal job of relating all of his material to his personal challenges with his health.
1) Everything I eat has an impact on how I feel and perform. Moving forward, when I want to perform my best, I will eat the best foods. I understand that many people may find Tom's recommendations to rigid to apply at each and every meal, but if you are able to make even small improvements on a daily basis then you will have accomplished a great deal. 2) Movement throughout the day is more important than I gave it credit. I am a health and fitness fanatic but I am guilty of doing all of my activity in 1-2 hour bursts 3-5 days a week and doing little at other times. I have begun implementing Tom's recommendation of regular activity at every moment possible and it has made a huge impact on my family. I take my dogs for long walks daily now, not only when it is convenient for me. This gets me out of the house enjoying nature and it is great for the health of my furry children. Speaking of children, I take every moment I can to play with my 15 month son. This has helped build an even stronger bond between my son and I that I appreciate so very much. 3) My favorite quote from the book is "if you want to do more, sleep more." Everyone has heard of the importance of a good nights sleep, and yet many people are getting fewer hours of sleep in order to "get more done." I am guilty of doing this and yet once I heard Tom's words something clicked and now I view sleep differently. I now view sleep as if it is one of my tasks on my to-do list and address it with the same sense of urgency I addressed those tasks.
