The 5 Best Books for Achieving Your New Year's Resolutions

Be the change you want to see in 2019. How is it only mid-January? I feel like this is always the looongest month of the year. Since it's right after the holidays (post-holiday syndrome is real) and the coldest time of the year, January is downright depressing, making it a great time to read some inspiring and motivating books.Plus, if you slacked off on your New Year's resolutions after the first week, the end of January is a great time to get back to work on those goals and solidify them into...

Needed Self Care for the New Year

As adults the holidays can be a blur and cause us to lose sight of good habits and healthy behavior. We rush here and rush there trying to make sure we find the right gift, visit with all the friends and family, squeeze in holiday parties and cookie exchanges, and all while trying to keep up the “holiday spirit.” It’s no wonder that by the time the new year arrives we feel exhausted, cranky and just done with everything. This time of year is supposed to be fun and full of joy and camaraderie...

Intention, Action and Accountability to Accomplish Your Goals

I don’t create New Year’s Resolutions  because, for myself and most others I know, they don’t last. As we have just crossed the threshold from 2018 to 2019, this topic is fresh on people’s radar. Diets, gym membership and smoking cessation programs take upticks at this time of year. At my gym where I work out 3-4 times a week, I notice that the machines are more occupied right before and right after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve/Day. Does motivation run higher at those times...

Nineteen Things I Want from 2019

Read on for the many goals I have heading into the new year! Here is one thing I am absolutely sure of: 2018 was a year of tremendous growth, it was also a year of tremendous ass kicking (mainly mine). I'm not usually one for making or keeping New Year's resolutions but here is something I can promise, I am ready to kick 2018's ass out and make way for an even greater 2019! *Time to celebrate!* Like I said, I'm not really a resolution girl; I'm more of a "general ideas and direction for the ne...

5 Sure-Fire Ways to Keep New Year’s Resolutions

The new year is here and you know what’s coming. Family members, friends and coworkers will ask, “What are your resolutions this year?” Usually it’s just an idle conversation starter.

Whatever your reaction, the questions do raise awareness of the yearly ritual. Maybe, just maybe, it’s time to do something to ...

Thrive in the New Year: How to Set Intentions Not Resolutions

Each new year we are encouraged by society to set New Year’s Resolutions. It’s a time that’s supposed to be filled with new hope of making things different in the coming year.

5 Quick, Free Workouts You Can Do At Home

Because who needs the campus gym? We are now well into the holiday season, and that means junk food galore, busy schedules, and becoming intimately acquainted with the snooze button. It's the time of year when we all put our health on the back-burner a little bit, because we just don't have the time or money for exercise.However, coming right after the holidays is the time of year when everyone starts to really think about prioritizing wellness, and how to do it even better (or at all) next yea...

4 Reasons to Show Off Your Style Online This Year

Here's why I’m style blogging in 2017, and why you should too. Photo Credit: Unsplash.com For a few years now, I’ve been pining after the quirky, mysterious, poised gateways fashion blogging seems to open.

There were many coming-to-grips and moving-cross-country and chang...

January is a time for resolutions and change. In the excerpt below, the authors of An Intelligent Career: Taking Ownership of Your Work and Your Life explore the role of change in how we start projects, finish projects, and do work. Thirty years ago, Jean-Luc Brès took an entry-level advertising position in Polydor records (now part of Universal Music group) in Paris, France.

This Is an Invitation

This is an invitation. I am inviting you to do something other than make a New Year’s Resolution. I am inviting you instead to make a New You Transformation. You know, the transformation into the “you” that you want to be, could be, and should be. You know, the “you” that you have been waiting for. The “you” that you have kept us waiting for.

Keeping Your New Year’s Resolution Is Easy in These Cities

Committing to a New Year’s resolution is a challenge, no matter how lofty (or vague—guilty!) the goal. A recent analysis by WalletHub reveals our environment—specifically, where we live—can lessen that challenge. According to the analysis, which ranks the best and worst cities for keeping New Year’s resolutions based on factors such as adult obesity and income growth, the top five best cities are: Salt Lake City, Utah Salt Lake City has the second-lowest percentage of adult smokers.

One Word to Define 2017: Ignite

I’ve got fire issues. What I mean is that I’m so urbanized and far removed from Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts training that I can’t effectively light a fire. I compensate by using helpful agents to assist. Like the day we moved into a new house in northern Canada with a backyard and a fire pit. BIG IGNITION, LITTLE REWARD My son and his friend couldn’t wait to light a fire in the new fire pit, so I obliged and we began. After several attempts to ignite a flame nothing was happening. No fire. N...

Psychology Around the Net: December 31, 2016

Happy New Year, sweet readers! For a variety of understandable reasons, I know many of you are glad to see 2016 end. The other night, I was talking (ranting) to my beau about how horrible this year has been and how I can’t wait for it to end because it just can’t get any worse when — BOOM! — common sense knocked me right upside the noggin mid-sentence. Sure, some bad things have happened, but so have some good. I am sad some of my favorite actors and musicians died. I am elated none of my...

My New Years Resolution for 2017

I want to be more generous with my fishing time in 2017. I wrote a little bit about this in November as well on this post:  I Guess I'm A Terrible Friend Then.I generally enjoy fishing with other people.   I just don't do it very often.  Out of the 233 days I fished last year I fished intentionally with other people on about 10%.  That is more than I originally thought it would be, but I'd like to do more of it in 2017.  I think I'd like to see the number be between 20% and 30% for 2017.  Havin...

New Year, New Chance to Raise Your Self-Esteem

It’s one of the most common concerns I hear in my practice. Clients worry that their self-esteem isn’t high enough for them to succeed in relationships, work, school — almost anything. Not feeling good about themselves, they feel that changing their direction in life is impossible. They want to feel better. They want to feel they deserve better. They want to feel confident and competent again. They want to talk about it in session so they will feel good enough to make changes in life. Pop p...
