Blogging and Social Networking for your Health and Happiness

Sometimes it can be difficult to make major life changes such as changing your diet, exercising, quitting smoking, etc. without having a good support system in place. It's very common to feel like you're alone in your journey when most people in your immediate life have different priorities and goals. Fortunately, technology has now enabled us to connect with like-minded individuals virtually. Surrounding yourself with daily sources of inspiration will make your journey towards health and happiness a lot easier and much more fun. Everyday I connect with others that are on the same path as me through social networking sites such as Blogger, Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.  Even if you're not a tech savvy person it's very easy to understand how to navigate each of these websites, but just in case let me give you a quick run down of how to get started.


Blogger is like a free magazine customized  just for you. Although you don't need an account to view most blogs, creating an account allows you to have your own dashboard. Through your dashboard you can compile a list of blogs you'd like to follow, this is also where you can write your own blog if you'd like. When you follow a blog you automatically receive it's most recent posts in your dashboard (see picture on right). It's a great resource for anyone looking to stay motivated and connect with new interesting people. First you need to sign up by going to bloggers homepage (this only takes a second). I suggest you start by following this blog. Just click the follow button located in the upper right hand corner. I'll be happy to assist you with any questions you may have about getting started.


Facebook can be much more than just a way to connect with friends and family. Do a quick search for anything that interests you and you're sure to find a fan page for it. Although many of the fan pages out there can be a little ridiculous, there are just as many that are dedicated to their cause and contain a lot of relevant information and pertinent links.

Some of the fan pages I follow are:
