Coming Soon: A Month of Little Steps to Health and Fitness

BlogHer Original Post

Soon it will be January. And you will be seeing 40 kabajillion posts on resolutions. And most of those will be about major life-changing regimens to get healthy.

I'm here to tell you, my friend. Major life-changing regimens are tough to stick to. I've learned a long time ago that some of us (ahem) need to ease into new habits. Drink a glass more water a day. Take the stairs. Et cetera.

So next month, BlogHer's sharing 31 tips on little things you can do to make your life healthier. Charlotte Hilton Andersen from The Great Fitness Experiment will contribute her little steps. So will BlogHer staffers and contributing editors. And we want YOURS, too!

If you have a post about a small step you've taken to get healthier -- whether it's a quick fitness hack that gets you more active, or a health issue you've learned to attack while it's manageable, or a shortcut to better nutrition -- we want to hear about it.

Here's what to do: Log in to your BlogHer account and write up a blog post containing your tip.  Explain why you started doing it, and how this small tweak to your day has led to big changes (or even small changes!).  Then email Mel with the link to the post to tell us it's there so we can feature it. (You can also ask her any questions you might have by clicking on that hyperlinked email address.)

We'll be shining a spotlight on your posts on the homepage, and around the BlogHer publishing network. We're also sending out a weekly email roundup of the week's tips.

And actually, let me introduce you to Mel who will be rounding up the small steps and sharing one a day.  She's a contributing editor at BlogHer, and a maker of resolutions she never keeps.  This year, her only resolution is going to be to introduce small, sustainable steps rather than make sweeping changes.  

Enter your email below to get to the sign-up sheet for BlogHer's Health & Fitness newsletter -- we won't sign you up for anything until you confirm on the next page. You'll get the weekly Little Steps newsletter in your inbox in January, and other health and fitness advice we think you'll like later in the year. (And of course we won't sign you up for anything else. We're good like that.)
