Holistic Wellness is my game. Here are my New Years resolutions. I hope that they can motivate you to make a few of your own.

Social Health:

Goal #1

Meet new people! Being in a new city (even though I went to college here, I moved away for 7 years and moved back), I still feel a little lonely. I have to remember there is an adjustment period, but I also can’t complain about being lonely if I don’t put myself out there to meet new friends.

Goal #2

Cultivate deeper friendships. This takes time. I want to feel connected. I have my husband and he is my best friend. However, I need some ladies in my life to share and connect with as well! It is not a quick fix, but again I have to put the work in.

Physical Health:

Goal #1:

I play lots of sports (like soccer, ultimate frisbee, and running) that make me feel powerful! I eat pretty well- with some room for fun yummy indulgences! However, I want to have some more overall wellness, flexibility, and strength. So More Yoga, Swimming, Climbing, etc. (Things that use your whole body but aren’t super hard on your body).

Goal #2:

Falling asleep on the couch, only to stumble later into bed without taking my makeup off and brushing my teeth, is pretty typical when I’m exhausted (Don’t worry I do it ridden with shame in the morning). I want to take better care of my hygiene.

Mind Heath:

Goal #1:

Mental Health: I will go to therapy and make it a priority instead of saying every time,”I am a therapist. I can handle it.” I believe in getting and giving counsel. Let me practice what I preach!

Goal #2

Brain Oils: I have read a lot that oils are really healthy for your brain, memory, preventing dementia, healing concussions, etc. Coconut, Olive, Avocado, Sunflower, Safflower, Almond, Flaxseed, Grapeseed Oil… May the cooking fun begin!

Spiritual/Soul Giving/Emotional Health:

Goal #1

Find a church that I can invest in the community and find a friend with whom to discuss faith and real life as well as having someone to encourage/pray for/and pray for me. Pray more.

Goal #2

Be more encouraging and less critical of myself and others.  I am a developer, which means I have high standards and expectations. That can cause me to be critical and direct at times, but that attitude is not always helpful in my personal relationships.
