The Ultimate Beautiful Day:
Daily Care and Maintenance Day
We all know the classic definitions of a beautiful day. Some may say —it's spent at the beach. Others may say —it's spent in the sack. Some may say it must involve some sweat or a salmon dinner or a round of 18 at Pebble Beach. Others may say that the minimum requirements for a beautiful day should include the word pedicure. Any of those things may very well fit your criteria for a beautiful day. Now, however, —we're going to present you with a different kind of beautiful day—a day in which the things you do reflect on the core of improving your inner and outer beauty. Remember, if —you've made it this far, your ancestors (and you) have already made the major leagues when it comes to beauty. Now your choices can make each day better for you. A beautiful day —doesn't have to be a day in which —you're removed from reality; it can be a day in which —you're immersed in it.
That's why —we've built this beautiful day around a typical weekday in most —people's lives; we left time for you to do your job, whether —it's at an office or running a family, and we snuck in those tactics that you can seamlessly include while —you're working your job or shuttling your kids. After all, improving yourself and your health —shouldn't overwhelm your life; it should be integrated as a vital part of it.
