  • I agree with so much of this and it's not only in the physical heath arena - it would also help in my emotional heath by analyzing why I get allow myself to be distracted from important aspects of my life. - 2/3/2011 12:34:43 PM

  • Such a timely article!
    I was just thinking today about how I quit smoking 15 years ago. No matter what, I never smoke. There's a little voice that goes off in my head that says "I don't smoke anymore" and "I don't really want to wake up tomorrow knowing I smoked today," every time I consider it - even if I've got a few drinks in me. The same thing could apply to eating and exercising! I can't wait to make this happen for myself! Thank you :) - 12/28/2010 3:37:45 PM
