New Year

by Sheila

Happy New Year everyone!  I’m looking forward to 2013 and all that the year has to bring.  Do you have any New Years resolutions?  Here are a few of mine:

1. Walk to More Places  I was in New York recently and loved how everyone walks everywhere.  I’m going to try to do the same whenever.  I live near a downtown and so far, I’ve walked to do my errands, whether going to the grocery store, farmer’s market, and even my chiropractor appointments.

2. Juice – I love drinking fresh veggie juices, they’re energizing and so healthy for you.  Unfortunately, it’s been difficult for me to keep up a routine long-term.  This year, I’ve resolved to have fresh fruit or veggie juice once a week, by either going out and getting one or making it at home.  I think once a week is a more doable goal that I can keep up with in the coming year.

3. Integrate both sides of myself – This may sound like a strange goal, but it’s about self-acceptance and letting go of a black/white outlook.  I always see myself as having two sides, one is very spiritual and holistic and ‘woo woo’, the other is very ‘of this world’ and is career/success driven and loves to indulge.   I used to think that I had to pick one or the other, but I’ve resolved to integrate both sides of my personality in 2013.  I can eat tripe creme brie and still follow a healthy lifestyle overall.  Or I be a high-tech career women that is spiritual and practices Reiki.  I’m going to embrace being multifaceted.
