What’s Your Wellness Focus?

bigstock-126045059Well, it’s 2017! Can you believe it?! I can’t. Where did the time go? Every year at this time I sit down, plan my focus, and set my intentions for the year to come. Where do I want to be by the end of the year? What can I do to enhance my life and live in the happiest way possible? For some people that’s losing weight, for some it’s finding love, for some it’s starting your dream career, for me it’s focusing on living with a mind and body in harmony. What does that mean you might ask…it means loving yourself, loving your flaws, and most importantly accepting yourself for who you are. To be comfortable with the space that you’re in with your life and to take each day as a new opportunity. That’s what I’m trying to focus on.

I have always been passionate about women’s healthcare. It’s so important to me that women take care of their body, as well as their mind. Last year I put together the Women’s Mind Body Wellness Summit. Throughout my life and career I have been fortunate enough to connect with many amazing female thought leaders. These are strong, empowering women and I couldn’t wait to share them with you! The WMBW Summit discussed all of today’s hard hitting health and wellness questions such as; signs and symptoms of heart disease in women, the best types of cardio exercise, how to feel comfortable with your child’s daycare facility, as well as easy ways to improve your nutrition on a daily basis.

5 Tips for Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions

bigstock-144036260It seems like every year I make all of these New Year’s resolutions and by the middle of the month I’ve already forgotten about them. Some years it’s to lose weight, others it’s to cut sugar, or sometimes it’s to devote more time to self-care. Well this year, I’m going to do my best to keep them. And I hope you do, too!  2017 is fast approaching! Here are 5 tips for keeping your resolutions this year!

Set realistic goals
It’s not realistic to think you’re going to lose 50 pounds by February 1st. Or that you’re going to make it to the gym every day for a whole month. Instead set a goal to lose one or two pounds a week and to get to the gym three days a week. If your goals are unrealistic they will be impossible to attain.

Make a plan
A goal without a plan is just a wish. Take time to figure out just how to execute your goals. Set aside a schedule for when you have time to go to the gym. Or meal prep on Sunday night to have all of your food prepped for the week so you can still eat healthy even when life gets hectic.

Don’t beat yourself up
Don’t be hard on yourself if you fail. If your goal was to cut sweets from your diet, it’s okay if you cave and have a piece of cake. Just start back after that.

Write down your goals
This will help you visualize exactly what you want to achieve. I’ve always found it helpful to create a vision board. Or get a journal and write stuff down. Keep track of your achievements and your failures. Write down how your day went. Write down what aspects helped you to meet your goals for the day, or what challenges presented that threw you off. This will be extremely helpful for the future.

Get your friends in on it
It can be hard to keep your resolutions if those around you are indulging in the things you’re trying to avoid. Ask your friends to skip cocktails with you. Or see if you can get a girlfriend to hit the gym with you.

It feels really good mentally, and physically, when you stick to your goals. Focusing on mental wellness is extremely important to me. If you think you need a little extra help with your wellness goals this new year pick up the exclusive Women’s Mind Body Wellness Summit!
