The first month of the new year over, many of us have already renewed our gym memberships, brushed the dust off our running shoes, and talked about the "big" changes that we'll make in 2017.
Big changes, however, are not always the ones we're able to adhere to because they don't quite yet fit into our day-to-day lives. What many of us don't realize is that it's the small changes—simple hacks that we can make in seconds and within our own homes—that can provide us with a lifetime of positive impact.
For the past year, I've been working on a new project primarily in my home office, which means toiling away just a few feet away from my kitchen—a tempting prospect! But if you design your living and working environment to benefit your health, it all becomes easier.
