Can positive choices make you and your family healthier and happier? Is change really possible? It’s never too late to learn new ways to truly take care of yourself. English playwright John Dryden once said, “We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.” Our guests – Joyce Gidel, a licensed therapist and addiction specialist, and Patty Torza, a certified personal fitness trainer – share expert tips on making positive, lasting change. Because everyone can benefit from committing to healthier choices in 2016, our conversation explores:

  • what role the mind plays in the habits we have
  • reactions you may experience when you make healthy lifestyle changes
  • the ways we sabotage ourselves when committing to something new
  • what happens physiologically when you exercise, eat well, and reduce stress
  • how cultural norms and the media affect our attitude about ourselves and others
  • why having a spiritual focus can influence a healthier consciousness
