In the Book of Mormon, the prophet Alma teaches his son Helaman that “by small and simple things are great things brought to pass” (Alma 37:6). This truth can also be used as a guide to the personal changes we decide to make in 2019. The month of January can be a time for self-reflection and an opportunity to consider starting—or stopping—some of the small and simple things in our daily routines. Before beginning the year by jumping into a large and complex fitness-centered goal, it may be of long-term value to pause and attempt some smaller and simpler changes. These two easy suggestions can help you begin the process of building a more attentive, stronger, and healthier you.
