Not all tips and suggestions here will benefit every reader. Before adopting any of the suggestions presented here, I encourage you to first embrace the act of change. Most items on the blog will require only small changes in your lifestyle; however, change of any kind can be very hard. Get excited, be optimistic, don’t make excuses, and find a personal reason to stay dedicated to your changes.

Some changes may be impossible for some readers to achieve due to location, cost, health, etc. Please consult a physician before making any major health or diet changes. And remember, topics discussed here are merely suggestions- not promises or cures. Information will be provided so you can do more research and make the decisions that are best for you.

I wish you the best of luck and encourage you to enjoy every change you choose to make – and please, join in the conversation here and spread the word to help others also make positive changes in our world!
