Healthier Happier Life

52 Small Changes {Review + Giveaway}

Healthier Happier LifeAnother new year and 52 weeks to make it the best year possible. So why not have some help along the way. Brett Blumenthal has a great book called 52 Small Changes, One Year to A Happy Healthier You.

Let’s face it: change is easier said than done, especially when it comes to managing your health amidst the chaos of everyday living. 52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You is meant to inspire and motivate you to live healthier and make positive change in your life in an easy and manageable way. This is no quick fix, but it is a surprisingly simple one:
Make one small change per week, for 52 weeks, and at the end of the year,
you’ll be happier and healthier. –SheerBalance Website

I was thrilled to get this book for review. I am trying to make 2012 better for me and small steps is what I need to do to accomplish that.

My Thoughts

Okay I will be honest here. I haven’t completely read the entire book because when I skipped ahead, I found myself doing about 4 weeks worth of stuff in one week. Have I mentioned I have no patience? I did skim the entire book and I have to say, there are some great things happening in this book.  Some of the challenges include foods such as choosing whole grains to spending time with nature (I might see a problem with that one)

I will also be honest to say I haven’t really been doing these weekly challenges. I did the first 4 weeks and kinda sizzled out.  The thing is my weight loss was showing the improvements. Here were the first four weeks.

  • Week One- Drink that water
  • Week Two- Get some sleep
  • Week Three- Get moving
  • Week Four- Keep a Food Journal

All of these are key items to a healthy life. I need to get back to this book. Doing this post is a good reminder for me. This book is really impressive. It’s well organized and laid out. If you aren’t one of the lucky winners to get a book, I highly recommend adding it to your “to buy list”.


I am so thrilled that I was sent THREE extra books to giveaway to my readers.  This is open to US/Canadian residents and ends 2/16/12. Good Luck!
