Weekend Recap: Happy New Year!


Although my consulting firm had our holiday shutdown and I was technically off work all week, I had a different kind of work scheduled – ski instructing at Beaver Creek! I had an absolutely amazing time teaching seven classes, mostly levels 4 and 5 (linking turns and getting parallel on easy blue terrain), and even ended up with a high-ranking political official in one of my classes! (No, not Mike Pence, though he was apparently skiing in Beaver Creek all week.) I was especially psyched that several of my guests came back for repeat classes with me, so I got …

2020 New Year’s Resolutions


Last year, I kind of whiffed on my New Year’s resolutions. New Year’s is normally one of my favorite holidays because it reminds me to think about my goals and set some new intentions. But in January 2019, I think I was too exhausted from the election and caught up in trying to figure everything out with my new role as an elected official! I’d like to get my tradition of resolution-making going again, so here I present to you my 2020 New Year’s resolutions / goals. Read 100 books. This makes the list every year, as I track my …

App I Love: Stretchly


My January was a little bit of a bust – I was probably only about half successful with my New Year’s resolutions (which I still haven’t even formally blogged about!). But I’m taking the new month as an opportunity to recommit to my goals and habits, and one of those new habits is my use of the Stretchly app on my computer. Stretchly is a simple computer app that pops up periodic reminders on your desktop for you to take either a microbreak or a full break. You can program how long of an interval to go between each microbreak, …

Giveaway: Jaybird Freedom Bluetooth Wireless Headphones


Did you know that January 17th was “Ditch Your Resolutions Day”? It’s the day most people already give up on their well-intentioned New Year’s goals of getting in shape and working out more – which I think is such a shame. The research goes back and forth on exactly how long it takes to form a habit (21 days? 60 days?) but seventeen days is definitely not long enough. But what I like least about the made-up holiday is the fact that it makes it acceptable to give up on your resolutions – which is a really terrible mentality if …

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 …
