Where did the summer go? Once again, it's September, which always feels like the start of a new year—that going-back-to-school mentality (or reality). As we leave behind the carefree days of summer, there's an opportunity to reevaluate and readjust our health habits, whether that involves getting fitter, losing weight, eating better or improving other everyday habits—all of which add up to reducing our risk of disease and disability.

For people with chronic pain, life can be hard. The unrelenting pain may make you feel uncomfortable, cranky and even hopeless at times. But your pain may be more within your control than you think. Switching bad habits for good ones can help ease the pain and improve—and potentially prolong—your life. It's never too late to reverse your bad habits or adopt some new, healthy ones. It can be done if you give yourself some time and patience.

Around the time I reached my late 40s, I started having issues with shoes. Before then, I couldn't wait for Lord & Taylor to have its fall shoe sale. Each year, I would race to the store to pick out three pairs so I could get 30 percent off. Sometimes I would buy more than three. My closet racks were filled with shoes.

Losing weight is easy. Keeping it off is not. Why else would people be searching, time and time again, for that "perfect" diet?

My family vacation to Italy with stops in Rome, Florence and a full week's stay in Positano was already the best it could be—so how could it possibly get better?
