Whether as New Year’s resolutions, birthday wishes, or daily promises, most everyone vows at some point to make a major life change. But change is easier said than done, especially when it comes to better managing our wellness amidst the chaos of everyday living. Fortunately, wellness coach and award-winning writer Brett Blumenthal has devised a way to inspire and motivate her readers to live healthier and make positive changes in their lives. Although Blumenthal’s method is not a quick fix, it is a surprisingly simple one: make one small change per week, for fifty-two weeks, and at the end of a year, you’ll be happier and healthier. After all, it is the small changes that are the most realistic, instead of trying to overhaul your lifestyle all at once. 52 Small Changes addresses all areas of wellbeing, including nutrition, exercise, stress management, mental wellness, and even the health of one’s home environment. By guiding readers through these changes at an easy, manageable pace, Blumenthal provides an engaging roadmap to lasting results and “a happier, healthier you.”

Review:

A Q&A with Brett Blumenthal

Question:
Why did you decide to write 52 Small Changes: One Year to a Healthier, Happier You?

Brett Blumenthal:
I wanted to write a book that covers more than just diet and exercise and give readers a more manageable process to creating a healthy lifestyle.

Q:
What makes 52 Small Changes different from other wellness books?

BB: 52 Small Changes provides a holistic approach to wellness, and shows that by making small changes over a period of time you can achieve big results. By incorporating small changes every week you give yourself a better chance of sticking to these changes, and 52 Small Changes gives you the tools and tips to make that happen.

Q: Do you have a favorite chapter or section of 52 Small Changes?

BB: My favorite sections focus on components of life that we take for granted e.g. Laugh Out Loud (chapter 16), and Live with Purpose (chapter 20). I also like the unexpected chapters that evolved as I was writing the book such as Find Your Own Spirituality (chapter 52).

Q: Are the chapters of the book written in a specific order, or can you make each change in any order?

BB: The chapters are organized so that you don’t have to tackle one area of wellbeing, such as nutrition, all at once. Also, those changes that seem easier to most are at the beginning of the book, like drinking more water. My advice is to take the approach that works best for you and challenge yourself using the extra credit sections in selected chapters.

Q: 52 small changes seem like a lot! Do you have suggestions in the book for people who might lose motivation to help them get back on course?

BB: A great way to stay focused is by journaling--both food and exercise journaling. The book also provides a number of additional resources, such as an assessment tool that can be taken monthly or every few months, and checklists that you can use throughout your journey. By taking the time to make the 52 small changes, you have the ability to gain years of your life back. We all fall off the wagon at times, but if you think about why and be forgiving, you’ll have a better chance of succeeding the next time you try to make a change.

Q: Who is this book written for?

BB: This book is relevant to both men and woman of all ages. It’s also great for kids as you can make many of these changes at any age and still see results. This book would make a great family tool, or even a tool for friends--you can use the book and the changes to keep each other accountable.
