In the decades since, that lesson has resonated as Gupta has gone on to become an accomplished neurosurgeon and serve as CNN's chief medical correspondent.

Here are the five recommended actions, along with some of Gupta's recommendations on how to implement them in your life:

  4. Nourish ...

  5. Connect ...
