This is an old favourite that has been around for over 30
years and most coaches are aware of it as a tool to help people get into the
best, most productive state for themselves to be at their peak, either in the
work place, at home or getting ready to start work.

For example when I got more sleep, eat really well, stopped smoking, drank more
water and took time out to have proper meal breaks (not shoving a piece of
