When’s the right time to change your life?

In case you aren’t signed up to get our daily Healthy Life Virginia newsletter, click here to read today’s version, which includes motivational words about changing your life, a taco salad recipe, a story about children’s imaginary friends and more. To sign up to get the free newsletter, click here.

And speaking of changing your life, I’m interested in gathering stories from readers about how and why they found the motivation to make significant, meaningful changes in their lives. If you quit smoking, what spurred you to do that? If you changed your diet after a health scare, what helped you make the adjustment? If you built up an exercise habit after years of being sedentary, how’d you manage that?

If you’re willing to share your story, please email me at
