If you’re not sure where to start or feel overwhelmed when it comes to real food and whole living, know that you are not alone.

Making big lifestyle changes can be daunting and often difficult to sustain over time. 

So what’s the best way to make lasting changes?

Instead of making drastic changes and unpleasant overhauls, consider adopting just one new healthy habit each week.

One new, weekly healthy habit to build momentum; start to experience the positive effects, and to create a healthy, joyful life. 

Sound good?

I know it does to me. And I’m not the only one.

In fact, there’s a building body of research to support the notion that focusing on one small change at a time is the best way to meaningfully adopt healthy habits that stand the test of time. 

So let’s get started.

To kick things off, I’ve partnered with Prevention for their #SpreadTheHealth Healthy Habits Challenge, to show how simple making small, healthy changes can be.

The Challenge couldn’t be easier—just a commitment to short, one-week challenges focused on attainable health changes in key areas: Nourish, Connect, Move, Grow and Relax.

No matter your goals—from eating real food, to moving more, to getting a handle on stress—taking these little steps can really add up.

Adopt a new healthy habit for a week and before you know it your small changes will add up to big results, helping to make this year your healthiest, most joyful yet.
