PEP TALK – January 2018

Are You In It For The Long Haul?

The turn of a new year is a time when we symbolically hit the “reset button.” Within a few weeks most of  us lose our resolve. Instead of making resolutions, try making new rules for yourself. This month’s PEP Talk explores how adopting a new mindset will help you hold yourself accountable.

We’ll also explore strategies to help make healthy choices when eating out.
