A Guilt-Free Approach to the New Year

As we head into 2020, it’s important to be realistic about what individuals can and cannot do about large-scale challenges, like climate change. In his blog this week, Dr. Brian G.M. Durie shares helpful guidance about the healthiest way to move forward in the new year—without “freaking out” about the problems we cannot solve on our own. Try eating less meat, more beans, take walks, and have clear plans in place to manage your myeloma.
