You are worthy! Make self-care a priority.


Sarah’s Rap: As I decide what positive habits I’d like to foster in the New Year, one thing I really want to focus on is self-care and ensuring that I make it a priority in my life. This is very important to my healing, sanity and happiness at home and work. Although the habits we each want to cultivate differ based on who we are as individuals and what our needs are, I believe that everyone needs to make time for self-care to be healthy. Self-care, as the name implies, is “care provided for you, by you. It’s about identifying your own needs and taking steps to meet them. It is taking the time to do some of the activities that nurture you. Self-care is about taking proper care of yourself and treating yourself as kindly as you treat others.” *

Does this sound like a foreign concept or an impossible task? As a working mom, I totally understand that setting aside time for relaxation, fun, exercise, meditation, massage or whatever activity one considers as downtime can be impossible to fit in. Well read-on, my friends, and learn more about why self-care is so important and how we can use habits to incorporate more self-care into our day. Continue reading

Healthy Habits, Here We Come!

Happy New Year everyone! If you are like us, you have started past years with a list of things you want to start (or stop) doing in order to be a better person or shape a better life for yourself. And, if you are like us, that list was all but forgotten by February 1st. It’s about time we tried another approach, don’t you think?

Instead of making a list of actions or behaviors you wish to implement or change, consider creating healthy habits that can help you achieve your goals. According to the Encarta English Dictionary, a habit is a “regularly repeated behavior pattern: an action or pattern of behavior that is repeated so often that it becomes typical of somebody, although he or she may be unaware of it.” A healthy habit is one that benefits our health, physically and emotionally.

Over the next few weeks, we will help you learn steps for creating healthy habits and provide tips on self-care, self-talk, sustenance (physical and mental nourishment), fitness and more. Stay tuned for posts on how to create a plan, track your progress, rewire your habits, create intention, raise self-awareness and respect your resistance, prioritize self-care, and so much more. If you are tired of reliving the same resolution cycle each January where you end up right where you started, then we hope you will join us this month for a series that can revolutionize your habits, help you achieve your goals and jump start your year.
