Motivation
As I wonder about all of your 2019 resolutions I ask you: Are you still able to keep up what you set out to do? Statistics show that about 80 percent of people stop doing their New Year resolutions by mid-February — yes, I repeat, mid-February. I want to talk to you about how to keep up that motivation for the rest of the year. Goal setting, for one, is not always easy. We tend to set goals that are too unattainable for what we are currently capable of, setting ourselves up for failure. I encourage you to look at what you are currently doing, and set some realistic “short-term” goals as well as “long-term” goals. The short-term goals should be closer to what you are currently doing.

Self Help
We tend to talk about self-care in terms of luxury and pampering, and that narrow definition might just be hurting us. It’s time to change our self-care definition to be a lot broader. Rethinking Our Definition of Self Care A friend shared an article about self-care by Tami Forman at Forbes recently, and it rocked me. Forman argues that, at its core, self-care isn’t about scented baths or 90-minute massages. It’s about making everyday choices that serve your physical and mental health. “It’s taking care of yourself in a way that doesn’t require you to ‘indulge’ in order to restore balance,” Forman explains in the Forbes piece. In other words, put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping others. Su...
