With a little bit of planning, you can keep your New Year’s resolution this year. Here’s how.
When it comes to the end of one year and the start of another, I always like to take some time to reflect on the lessons learned and think about the tweaks I need (and want) to make going forward. Having never been a big fan of the ‘resolutions’ mentality, but certainly a fan of change and improvement, my personal, annual upgrade list is taking shape. So, what’s on my to-do list this year? Less resolution, and more evolution, with an emphasis on the idea of not only being well, but staying well – and focusing the behaviors that encourage wellness in all aspects of life.
When I work with clients, they often think that the most important things to focus on when cultivating greater health are diet and exercise. While these are incredibly important for optimal health, stress reduction is just as important and often falls to the wayside. Meditation is one of the best tools out there to promote a relaxation response in the body and soothe your parasympathetic nervous system. Here are my top tips for developing a regular meditation practice.
