The New Year is a symbol of starting fresh. It's probably not surprising that the two most popular New Year's resolutions are "Staying fit and healthy" and "Losing Weight." It is also probably no surprise that most people don't feel they ever reach their New Year's goals or give up before they do. This often happens because they don't set a plan on HOW to actually do that. They think, "I want to lose 15 lbs," and so they get a gym membership and show up without a real plan in place. Or they say, "I want to 'get healthy' this year," but they don't really know HOW to do that.
What are your resolutions that just don’t seem to stick? I MIGHT be one of those people who makes a long list of over-zealous intentions that seem to stick for about the first six weeks of the year. It’s just that some New Year’s resolutions are so! hard! to! keep! And I should know, I’ve been trying to clean up my vocabulary every January for YEARS now.
So, this year I'm not making any New Year's Resolutions. I am going to take small steps toward my goals. I know that I'll see a difference with a slow and steady approach. My goals for next year include continuing to grow this amazing, supportive tribe of people, and spread health + wellness all over like peanut butter and jelly. I'm also working on my mindset and learning more about Conscious Language and the Aroma Freedom Technique. Two steps towards living a more abundant life!
Here are some fun groups and challenges that I'm participating in to keep me accountable and learn some new tips + tricks >>>
Your Healthiest Year Facebook Group
Come join me in the Your Healthiest Year Facebook group and we can make 2018 our most physically and mentally healthy year together.
Your Healthiest Year is a group that offers a holistic health approach to wellness with complimentary practices. Deena Barselahh, Holistic Health Practitioner and friend of mine whom I trust completely with my family’s health practices, Miriam Rosettii, a specialized and incredibly learned yoga instructor, and Elizabeth Savelle Garciaa, make an incredible trio you will learn tons from!
A bit about what you can expect in the group:
- Recipes for remedies, snacks, desserts, DIY skincare, home-spa fun, and others
- How-to videos with everything from making bone broth to lip balm, yoga sequences, guided meditations, giving yourself a facial, various routines throughout the day, and many others.
- A community in which you can ask questions and share anything you like, knowing this is a private group and a safe space, free of any judgement.
Want to make 2018 ‘Your Healthiest Year’? You and your loved ones deserve your very best version—right?!?! Shout out and I will add you to this incredibly supportive group for men and women of all ages. Feel free to add others in your life that you want to join your journey.
