Weekly Wrap-Up

Hey friends, how are you doing this week? How is your #selfcare routine? Are you exercising? Making time for your own thoughts? Making time away from your computer to be with your friends and family? Maybe a goal for the weekend? Sunday I have 4 conference calls so on Saturday I am leaving my computer and phone and home and plan to get time outside! I also plan to take a nap, I can’t wait! Big hug and see you next week.

Happy New Year! 2018 was awesome, and honestly we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings. I started my year off by listening to the latest episode of the Nod, on setting your intentions for the year. I love the connotation of ‘intention’ because it allows for and encourages assessment and reflection at the end of the year - more so than ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions.’ What do you think? Do you set intentions? Make resolutions? Or do you have another tradition for starting out a new year?
