A Few More Small Resolutions for 2017


Before the end of 2016, I wrote a 2017 New Year’s goals post – but also noted that I didn’t have all my resolutions figured out yet. But the more I thought about it (and talked about it with some great and inspiring friends), I ended up coming up with a short list that I’m really excited about. Some are daily habits and some are long-term goals, but all are things that I feel pretty passionate about and I also think are reasonable lasting changes for me to make. One of the toughest things about writing New Year’s resolutions is the …

2017 New Year’s Goals


For many people, the holiday season means Christmas, and they’re super excited. But to be perfectly candid, I don’t really love Christmas – it’s a pretty stressful time of year for me. However, I love what comes right after Christmas: the days leading up to New Year’s, when everyone is thinking about potential resolutions. What a great time of hope and possibilities! I’ve been noodling on various resolutions for a few weeks, trying to think about what I hope to accomplish in 2017. I don’t have it all figured out yet, but wanted to share some of my thoughts in …

Why You Should Set One More Goal in 2016 (It’s Not Over Till It’s Over)

Today is December 15th – which means we’re already halfway through the last month of the year. Where did 2016 go?! All across the blogosphere, people are writing their “year in review” posts and even beginning to discuss their goals for 2017. But 2016 isn’t over – don’t give up on it yet! Steve Kamb over at Nerd Fitness recently wrote a great post on staying healthy in winter, and he had this sage advice to offer for the month of December: “Think of it like you’re on the starting line of a race for a healthy life that starts …

February Challenge: Zen on the Road


February is Valentine’s Day, and so I think it’s as good a time as any to focus on some self-love. It’s no secret that I’ve been incredibly stressed out lately, and so I’d like to take the month of February to commit to doing something stress-relieving. I thought for a while about what that stress-relieving thing might be. Reading more? I feel like I am already doing well on that front (just brought my total books read count for January up to 11 this weekend). TED Talks in the morning? That petered off for me last year. And as I mentioned …

January Goal Progress: Week 3 Check In

It’s already the third week of January – how are your New Year’s resolutions going? I still love the concept of my twelve goals in twelve months, but I have to say that my discipline to actually accomplish my January goal is waning. Last week, I got done everything that was on my to-do list that needed to get done. However, I wasn’t doing it on the schedule I had set for myself in the morning. You might think that’s okay, since I was still getting done everything I really needed to do, but I didn’t do most of the nice-to-have items …
