3 Resolutions For 2016:
One: Worry less and enjoy the present
Two: Take time to nourish all relationships in my life
Three: Try (that’s the keyword!) to get more sleep
My Mantra For This Year:
Make that sh*t happen!
The Best Choice I Made In 2015:
Becoming a mother of two. The joy that has been added into our family is better than I ever imagined. I feel unbelievably blessed!
Meditation is a must for me. If possible, take time for yourself by taking a nice bath, getting a facial or anything that makes you feel recharged. I also love using an essential oil when I can feel my stress levels skyrocketing. Lavender always does the trick!
I’m Going To _____ Less:
Worry less. I’m always thinking steps ahead and I need to make it a priority to take the time to slow down and appreciate what’s all around me.
I’m Going To ______ More:
Spend more time nurturing my friendships. Even if I’m busy, I’m going to take that time to make that phone call and be present.
Easiest Daily Health Tips:
Make time for yourself. It’s so easy to make yourself the last priority, especially when it comes to your health and wellness. Even if you just have ten minutes here and there, it adds up. When you take that time for yourself, it makes you a better wife, a better mom, a better friend.
My Go-To Recipe:
I’m huge into my meatless Mondays. I’m not a vegetarian, but I try to eat as plant-based as possible. My favorite dish to make for my family is a eggplant stuffed with quinoa. It’s healthy and fresh but still filling!
Exercise every day – even if it’s only twenty minutes. Home with your kids? Strap those babies in a stroller and take a walk around the block. At work? Do lunges in your office on your lunch break. Just get moving!
Books On My Reading List:
Why Not Me? by Mindy Kaling is definitely on my book list. She’s hilarious, so I can’t wait to start.
To Get Motivated I:
Even if I feel tired or unmotivated, I try to bite the bullet and get moving. It’s never enjoyable at first, but after five minutes when my endorphins kick in, I’m good to go! A great playlist is also a good motivator.
On My Bucket List For The Year:
Finishing my second book. Stay tuned!
Vow To Myself For 2016:
Be present and nourish every relationship in my life.
My Best Advice For You This Year Is:
Pick a lane. If you do something, give it your all!
