Creating a New You – Wellness Journal
Set exercise goals, log your sleep pattern and eating plans.
Creating a New You is a creation by Dr Arun, and supported by Metagenics.
The only way to achieve your dreams is to write them down on paper. Journalling is a very powerful exercise and can help form new lifestyle patterns called – HABITS.
Habits, both good and bad, play such a huge role in our lives. Yet they might be overlooked in the day to day. However, habits often need early nurturing to develop into everyday habits.
Understanding how habits work – and how you can master habits to ensure your success – is crucial to living a life you love and having a healthy body after surgery. That’s where the “Creating a New You” Goal Setting Journal comes in to play!
“Wishing you success on your journey to optimal health!!”
