Do you read the word ‘change’ and think about those New Year’s resolutions you made full of good intentions that didn’t last into February! The nutrition program you would start, or the exercise program you would develop, only to slip back into your old habits!

Making changes stick for the long term is hard! Creating new and healthy habits takes time.

This short course can help you make long-term change, or you may use the knowledge to support another person to change. Click here for more information.

This is course is FREE for AFCNA members and for a limited time (until the end of November) Guests can also access it at no cost.
