Health = Wealth

Yoga Life Lessons
JEAN CHATZKY

Researchers have stumbled upon a supercool truth: People who lose pounds tend to also build wealth. Here, ways to harness the power of positive change 

James Prochaska, Ph.D., director of the Cancer Prevention Research Center at the University of Rhode Island—and one of the country's leading experts in the field of behavioral change—has helped tens of thousands of people quit smoking, reduce their stress, and lose excess weight by prepping them for the change. His fundamental belief is that the big reason so many people give up on their (goals is that they didn't do enough to prepare themselves to take action daily). "Change is a process," he says, "not an event. And 80% of people aren't prepared when they start."


How do you lay the groundwork? Getting ready = moving consciously through several stages. 
That might mean thinking about the cool vacation you could save for when you no longer have those big credit-card bills to contend with, or the thrill of fitting back into your favorite skinny jeans.
Then comes the next stage, "contemplation," when you are seriously thinking about making a change. When you're at this stage, it helps to focus on how the pros of taking some kind of action outweigh the cons.
Don't Try Too Much Too Soon (Take small action steps daily)
