Yes, I can – a small catchy headline in this month’s Prevention Australia jumped out at me. Probably because it is exactly how I think – I am 100% obsolutely certain that I can chang my life to whatever I choose it to be. However, this is not the purpose of this blog – this is not a rant about me – what caught my eye was the statements in the article, and how they were a perfect dovetail into the last blog I posted about choices people make – either to wait for a “break” or to jump behind their wheel of their lives.
The article goes on to talk about how a key to a healthier life, a “can do” attitude is someting that is a must have on your key chain. According to the article, the Melbourne Institute of Applied Economic and Social Research study found that of more than 7000 people, the ones who believed that they had the ability to change their own lives, ate healthier, exercised more, smoked less and avoided binge drinking rather than those who believed in “luck” who were found to eat less well, smoke and drink more and exercised less.
Hmmm, food for thought.
