30 Days – 30 Healthy Experiments

Major health change happens with 1000 modest efforts. 

While the "big basics" (e.g. the Healthy Way of Eating, resistance training, ample movement, quality sleep, etc.) universally hold, you’d be surprised at how much license you have to "play" on the path to good health.

Viewing our journeys through the lens of experimentation can underscore the truth that our commitments are made and remade every day - choice by choice. It can also encourage us to try on new practices that fit our interests and progress us further in our lifestyle change.

Next, of course, in any success story comes the reckoning – and the resulting turn around. What shook us awake? What recognitions opened us to see our lifestyles in a new way and helped us become willing to embrace new changes and attitudes? What did we learn to revise in our lifestyles that allowed us to lose the weight and gain a more energetic, healthier life?
