Best of Our Blogs: January 2, 2018

Well here it is 2018! How are you feeling?

Before you sign up for that gym membership or get swooped into another round of resolution-making, stop. Take a pause. Breathe. Reflect on who you were in 2017, what you accomplished (even if it was something you consider irrelevant like getting up in the morning and going for a walk), and be grateful for that person and all that he/she did.

We rush so fast to become someone else. We forget and neglect that self-love and acceptance our worthy goals as well. In fact, without them, we can’t get the things we really desire in life. Chasing after weight loss or romance is just another way of saying, I need something to make myself feel worthy. So slow down this year. Grab a mug of something warm and yummy, read our top posts to start 2018 and then carefully plan out what you want to create in the new year.
