Resolutions for Any Day

I was recently interviewed by a local television station on how to stay motivated to keep resolutions made on January 1. I admitted to the reporter that I believe resolutions can be made any day, not just at the beginning of a new year. That said, if you made resolutions a few weeks back and you are losing steam, find a friend to support you, remember your motivation for choosing the resolution to begin with, and try to make it fun. If it is health related, you will soon see the progress you are making and that will help motivate you, too!

This newsletter includes an invitation to our annual worksite wellness conference, information on using plain language to make your messages more accessible and ways to help your community be more accessible as well. If you have ideas or suggestions for future topics, be in touch!

Happy New Year!
