Reader's Digest International - - Contents -

IT’S THE NEW YEAR, and a time many of us look at our­selves and our life­styles, and re­solve to change: to ex­er­cise more, to eat less, to be kinder—the pos­si­bil­i­ties are le­gion. But all good in­ten­tions aside, it can be dif­fi­cult to live up to our res­o­lu­tions. In this is­sue, we have sev­eral ar­ti­cles that will help you achieve your goals and feel good about your­selves.

It makes good sense to eat healthily but it of­ten seems like too much ef­fort. But you don’t nec­es­sar­ily need go to a spe­cial health food store or pay ex­or­bi­tant prices to eat well; the foun­da­tion foods for a healthy diet could be very close to home. “7 Power Foods In Your Pantry” high­lights com­mon foods found in most kitchens that will start you on your way to a good diet.

It’s not all about what you eat, how­ever. In “The Heal­ing Power of You,” our writer ex­plores the idea that “how you feel” isn’t just about what you eat, do or think, but about what you be­lieve. The so-called placebo ef­fect is very real: When we have pow­er­ful ex­pec­ta­tions in our brains, this can af­fect what hap­pens in our bod­ies. And, in “Words to Live (Longer & Bet­ter) By” ex­perts re­veal 26 ways you could feel—and look— younger at any age.

We hope these ar­ti­cles, along with our other fea­tures and de­part­ments, con­tinue to en­ter­tain, in­form and in­spire you as we move into a New Year. May there be good­will to­ward all men and peace on earth.
