Why Devastating Moments Can Change Your Life — For The Better

Here at mindbodygreen, we're privy to some incredible stories about the power of wellness to change people's lives. Every day on our site, you'll read about people who have followed their passion, healed themselves from serious illnesses, and are feeling more happier and more vibrant than ever before. But how did they get there?
