The Assessment

Congratulations! Your purchase of 52 Small Changes: One Year to a Happier, Healthier You, means you are embarking on an incredible journey! Before starting the 52 Small Changes Program, I’d like you to take a moment to reflect on where you stand today. Doing so will give you a baseline from which to start the next 52 weeks. To help you establish your baseline, I have developed an online assessment which takes a picture of your health and happiness today. The assessment looks at your lifestyle as it relates to diet and nutrition, fitness and prevention, mental well-being, and green living. At the end of the assessment, you’ll receive a brief summary of where you stand on each of these areas so you have a baseline from which to start the program.

It is important to mention that the assessment is based on things you can control, and not on the things you can’t. Specifically, the questions do not ask about your genetics or medical history, but instead ask questions about your lifestyle choices.

To eliminate spammers, I’ve employed the following process:

Here’s how to take the Assessment**:

  1. From your computer (not your tablet or Kindle – it will NOT WORK through these devices), go to the “52 Small Changes” link on the Sheer Balance Facebook Page
  2. Click “like” if you are not already a fan
  3. On the tab labeled “52 Small Changes” on the Sheer Balance Facebook Page you will then be able to access the assessment

    Kirstie, you did not provide your email address. Please email me at the address listed: and I’ll be happy to help.

  13. I was given this book for Chrsitmas from my mother-in-law. I attempt all the time to better my daily life but tend to lose track or give up after a while. Some things stick but others do not. I am looking forward to reading this book and to see how my mind takes it in.

    Is there a printout of the full checklist that grows as the weeks go on? Would be handy to stick on my kitchen door and highlight each item each week as a reminder.

    All the comments are from 2yrs ago. How did everyone do. Reports on successes, testimony of your journey would be helpful to a newcomer like me.

    Dear Brett, I have just bought the book, so I wanted to take the assessment, but I couldn’t do it as the plugin on your facebook page doesn’t work. Could you, please, send me the link to the assessment via email? Thank you in advance! Have a great day!

  20. Evelyn says:

    Is there any way to take the assessment if I do not have a laptop or desktop, only tablet and phone?

      Hi Evelyn,

      I tried sending you an email, but it was rejected. The assessment is online, but you should be able to access it through your tablet. I believe you can access the info through Facebook (even on your tablet if you use “Standard” instead of “Mobile”) as the instructions state above. Please email me at bblumenthal [at] and I will send you further info.
