Forget big Life Changes: Start with Tiny Habits

Most people fail to Stop Smoking, Start Eating the right food, or Fail to eliminate stress in their lives because they take on too big a challenge before they are ready.

Of course, this is the wrong strategy. Going “Head to Head” against inbuilt habits that formed over years of practice makes little sense…and change makes little headway.

Instead, go after change by making tiny changes to your habits.

Do something small that you can succeed with, then build from there.

So, take your health care advice to heart, listen to your Physician Assistant…and negotiate small steps that lead to your healthily lifestyle goals.

Your Physician Assistant takes the time to listen to you. Take your own time to change small habits. Let the small changes add up to renewed health and vitality.
