Molly Watts: This week on the podcast I’m talking to Dr.’s Jim and Janice Prochaska. The Prochaska’s are authors, speakers and consultants who have spent most of their professional lives studying the behavior or change. Together they founded their company Pro-Change Behavior Systems, which they sold in 2015. In 2016 they published, Changing to Thrive.
Our conversation focused on the book as it applies to the top threats to your overall health and happiness. The book focuses on the five areas recognized by health professionals as the key to chronic diseases: Overeating/unhealthy diet, smoking, drinking alcohol and lack of exercise, and overarching above all of those is stress.
