The past few years have been difficult for a multitude of reasons. It’s easy to get bogged down, especially with all of the craziness and change happening in our ever-evolving world.

And so, I encourage you to REFLECT, RESET and SET GOALS now while you’re taking shelter from the cold.
Reflecting is such a great way to see how many things you’ve accomplished this past year: it can be personal or work-related. I recommend that when you feel as though you might be at a lull or need some motivation; that you can use this as a tactic to encourage yourself, no matter the time of year!

Resetting is hard because people often do really well in the beginning, then something throws off the groove and people stop cold turkey. That all changes in 2023! It takes around fourteen days to create and stick to habits. Another creative thing you can do is make a vision board— whether that's a physical board or using an app like Pinterest. This sets the mood or tone at the beginning of the year you want to strive to achieve. Get inspired and creative and curate a little space of things that are going to be meaningful in 2023!
