Many books and programs are available to help people who want to quit smoking, reduce stress, become more organized, spend less money, start an exercise program, begin to diet, or make any other lifestyle change. Unfortunately, many of these resources focus only on what to change, but not how to change. Living SMART provides readers with the missing piece that can make the difference between success and failure. Developed by behavioral psychologists Dr. Joshua C. Klapow and Dr. Sheri D. Pruitt, the SMART program offers a set of evidenced- based, practical tools that go beyond "common sense and motivation." It is designed to work with any diet, exercise, stop smoking, or other health change program, and is built on the idea that successfully changing any behavior requires more than a degree of motivation; it requires the five behavioral skills embodied in the acronym SMART: Set a goal Monitor your progress Arrange your world for success Recruit a support team Treat yourself In this simple step-by-step program readers will learn how to positively change their health habits forever. Filled with helpful tips, checklists, resources, interactive exercises, and "The Chart" - a tool to track progress, readers will equip themselves with the know how to successfully change any unhealthy behavior. Special features include: - User-friendly format that enables readers to read the book in sections based on immediate needs, instead of from cover-to-cover - Action tips to increase and maintain motivation levels - Game plans for common health-related problems, including diet, exercise, sleep, and properly taking medication - A companion website that provides additional information, tips, and downloadable forms Living SMART will empower readers to stop fantasizing, take control of their life, and positively change their health forever.
