5 quick fixes for a better you in 2015

Be introspective.

"Take the time to think about what you want ... write it down ... manifest it," offers Anthony. "I write down what I want ... what I want to accomplish, what I want to do, where I want to go, what relationships I want to foster. The written word has much more power than your own thought in your own head."

"I have a tattoo on my wrist of a raven, which has a symbolic meaning of introspection; this is important to me, and when I feel life taking over, sometimes a quick glance gives me a good reminder to take some time to myself and put my priorities back in order."

Be passionate.

"Everyone should be passionate about something ... at least one thing," believes Anthony. "When I meet new people, it is one of the first questions I ask: 'Hey, what are you really passionate about?' Too many people can't answer this question."

Take the stairs.

"It's quick, it's a good tip, and it will jump start that workout plan," quips Anthony.

Control your tech.

"I am as guilty as anyone here," admits Anthony. "The phone dings and I am all over it: Email, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, text messages, email, phone calls ... I'm getting sick typing this!"

Anthony recommends controlling your inputs. "Very recently, I have shut off all my notifications for social media," he shares. "Beyond social media, I put my iPhone on 'Do Not Disturb' 30 minutes before I go to bed."

Put down the drink.

"If you want a quick fix to losing weight, sleeping better and jump starting your health kick, there is nothing better than NOT drinking alcohol," says Anthony. "Do a six- or eight-week abstain and I guarantee you will see the results. And let's be honest, after the holidays and holiday parties, we could all use a break!"
