It’s the beginning of a new year and while many of us will focus on joining a gym and eating healthier, Exeter College is offering you the chance to change your life. So put down that smoothie, and be prepared to make an actual life change in 2018, and the best way to start is by planning early.
Some changes may take weeks, or even years, but at Exeter College they have courses starting throughout the year, with some starting in the near future and others later in the year. But if you start planning now, you can plan for success.
A crash diet will take a few pounds off for a week or two, but a life change can be forever. So be brave, as 2018 could be your year – and here’s how…
