Simplicity is Key for Lasting Healthy Behaviours in 2016
One week into the New Year and how are you feeling?
For many of us, the holidays represented a time with more opportunity to practice re-energizing, restful and reflective behaviours. However, now that the holidays are behind us, we once again, find ourselves immersed in the ‘daily grind’, meaning for many, less time for self.
What are you doing to ensure that self-care remains a priority over the long-term? Perhaps you’ve outlined several resolutions for the New Year? Have you been successful in maintaining those so far?
I thought I would take this opportunity to share a few resources and articles I have discovered that outline strategies for successfully implementing and maintaining healthy behaviours:
