Better Together is a Journey Together

Better Together is a Journey Together

On each individual journey, there are many destinations, each of which commences a new leg of the journey – a new trail with its own lessons, struggles, and unexpected beauty. As we mature past our fears, past our striving for perfection, we can be encouraged that mistakes can be followed up with the entrepreneurial maturity to keep going, knowing that we did the best we could at the time. Simply measure your steps according to your unique sense of internal balance and you are certain to keep moving forward.

Turn Your March Madness Into Joy

Turn Your March Madness Into Joy

Many of us are accustomed to a rugged variety of going it alone when it comes to healthy changes, a white-knuckled grip on a new routine, and becoming “better” (or even being “good”) – a lot of pressure, either way! When we say that “better together starts with you,” what we mean is that real change, especially when it comes to wellness, has to start within.

What keeps you up at night?

What keeps you up at night?

I don’t know about you, but I have not been sleeping well.  An anomaly perhaps, I get eight hours and wake without an alarm.  Even so, apart from the debates, certain things keep me up at night.  As the week progresses, I look forward to coffee a little bit more each morning and fall asleep a little bit later each evening.  The routine becomes unavoidable by Wednesday and a vicious cycle by Friday.  Before I know it, the week has flown by, and I feel exhausted.  I recoup over the weekend and begin it all over again.

Better Together Starts With You™

Better Together Starts With You™

Challenge yourself to be an agent of change for wellness – for yourself, your neighbors, your loved ones, your city and beyond.  Be part of a global effort to be better together.  If you can do this, you are willing to place a higher value on the work it takes to pay attention to your body, practice acceptance of its limitations, and extend affection toward yourself and others than you do on plunging head first into burnout.
