I’m not making New Year’s Resolutions….instead, I’m upgrading my Wellness Lifestyle Routine!

Good evening and Happy New Year!

This is an exciting time of year, where people get revved up to make New Year’s Resolutions and all kinds of new goals…..which often get left by the wayside a few weeks into the new year. According to research, only 8% of people actually achieve their New Year’s Resolutions and Goals! That is pretty pitiful, considering we have the capability to completely change our lives. So why aren’t people achieving their goals?

A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, most common in the Western Hemisphere but also found in the Eastern Hemisphere, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self-improvement or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning from New Year’s Day.[1]

I myself have made New Year’s Resolutions many times, only to realize later that I tried to do too much at once, instead of focusing on one goal at a time, or one step at a time.

Now, in the start of 2016, I’ve decided not to make resolutions. Instead, I’m focusing my attention on MAKING MYSELF A BETTER VERSION of who I was yesterday. After all, what are we achieving if we are not taking action to learn, grow, and excel towards our goals?

This year, I am going to spend time working towards my goals by taking actions that are specific to my goals. For instance: I love to read. I want to read more often, so I plan to read things that will further my knowledge in things like cooking and exercise because eating clean and getting fit are two of my big picture goals.

I also plan to exercise more often and get outside to try new trails for hiking, snowshoeing and running to help me get in shape and increase my fitness level.

I want to educate myself on techniques to simplify life and eradicate mental illnesses such as anxiety and depression so I can better help my clients who want to change their lives.

I’m working on a 28 DAY HEALTHY HABIT CHALLENGE to start the year off right by creating positive habits that will last 🙂

Going Vegan – why do people judge?

I am going through what I think is a fabulous transition to become Vegan. Why? Because I support a better way of life for animals, and humans. There are many reasons why I think this is beneficial for me, and most importantly – I am trying to lead a better life.

So why is it, that people want to judge me so often for trying to be better? Is it because I don’t support animal cruelty? because I don’t want to eat chemical and hormone filled products? Or perhaps it’s because I just want to eat healthier? Continue reading

Improving Life – week 3

This week has flown by so fast!!! I have been extremely busy at work, so I feel like I have barely had any personal time to focus on myself. I was able to get a few relaxing baths in before going to bed, which helps me sleep better. I also have started reading a new novel, and I reconnected with friends I haven’t seen for a month. I’m really enjoying posting positive things and turning my life around. Continue reading
