Small Changes, Big Results: Your Journey to Physical and Emotional Wellness

Listen to a complete audio recording of this 2015 breakout session below.

This session won’t focus on cutting all the carbohydrates out of your diet, or replacing every single gram of sugar with omega-3 fatty acids, or urging you to do 100 sit-ups a day, or getting on the treadmill whenever you have a free second.

This interactive session will explore how you can introduce a series of small changes each week for the next three months in the three core areas of diet and nutrition, exercise and fitness, and emotional wellness. Learn how you can implement a practical action plan with incredibly doable tasks each week that will have you yield optimal results and achieve both physical and emotional wellness. Read More
