(Almost) A Whole New You

Ever wished you could have a fresh start?  I know I have from time to time.  What’s interesting is that we literally get a fresh start every few years and most of us never realize it.  Did you know that almost every cell in your body is replaced periodically?  Some have a faster turnover than others, but most cells are replaced every 7 to 10 years.  That means each day when you wake up, some part of you somewhere is getting that fresh start.  How cool is that?  The main exception to this is neurons – you have to take care of those babies, because they are the only ones you get.

Each time you choose to start or continue a healthy habit, you are nurturing those new cells – literally making them healthier than the ones before.

What will you do with your fresh start?
