The reality TV series Extreme Makeover unveils jaw-dropping “life” transformations. These memorable makeovers are orchestrated by a skilled group of plastic surgeons, dermatologists, nutritionists, personal trainers, makeup artists and more. Television cameras document the various cosmetic procedures, counseling and aesthetic tutorials required for each new and improved life.

Why resort to such extreme measures? Instead, consider some simple steps to begin eating cleaner food, drinking the proper amount of water  and integrating movement/exercise  into your daily routine.

Instead of letting yourself and your appearance get lost in the grind of daily life, begin reconnecting with the person you really want to be. These ten steps are designed to help you begin to transform your life!

1. Set goals.
Walking around the block every morning, riding bikes with the kids, or hiking a trail, we all need to realize simple achievements. Making a commitment to change for the better is the first step, and you should reward yourself by taking care of your body, mind, and spirit. Setting goals motivates you to make dreams reality.”

2. Breathe.
Taking deep, long breaths is so important. To increase this skill, consider yoga and incorporate meditation into your life.

3. Take care of your skin.
This not only means sunscreen protection but also a nourishing skin care regimen that includes washing and moisturizing your face every morning and at bedtime… It’s healthy to invest in quintessential feel-good-about-the-skin-you’re-in treatments after all it is the biggest organ in your body.

Many physicians tout the benefits of regular massage. There are numerous techniques to choose from including stress relief, energy work, deep tissue, and reflexology.

5. Find your style.
Be a little daring and give yourself a new cut and style then go shopping and buy an outfit that you’ve  had your eye on and put your new look to good use with a night out.

6. Eat.
Your lifestyle must consist of clean carbohydrates and good protein. Eat several small meals throughout the day including breakfast, a mid-morning snack, lunch, an afternoon snack and dinner. Try not to eat after 7 p.m.

7. Exercise.
Just as your body needs oxygen, it needs movement to be vibrant, healthy, and happy. Exercising five to six times per week empowers you to improve every aspect of your life.

8. Lighten your load.
Look at your daily routine… Is there something that you can do to optimize your routine? Hiring an organizational expert will pay for itself tenfold if you’re feeling great and have more time to take care of yourself.

9. Rest.
Your body requires rest — it’s actually vital to your well being and helps repair muscle mass after strenuous workouts. Take a bath, read a book, enjoy a 30-minute nap and be sure to get a good night’s sleep.

10. Consider coaching.
Working with a professional coach is not therapy. Instead, you’ll have a trained professional helping you transform your life. Imagine someone holding the flag at the top of the mountain, encouraging you to press on and celebrate your victories!
