12 Health Habits: 2014 Challenge Forget the grandiose, impossible New Year's resolutions: The path to a healthier lifestyle begins one little habit at a time. Welcome to the Cooking Light 12 Healthy Habits program. Each month this year focuses on one healthy practice that you're probably already doing but want to do a bit more (usually food-related, but there are a few focused on exercise).The plan challenges you to add a new habit each month, and by year-end, the accumulated effect will be a much healthier you. Sign up anytime by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org Each month turn in your tracking forms to Human Resources to qualify for prizes! In addition to the online tips, quarterly weigh in and workshops are offered on campus.
