Welcome 2012! Last year I bought a book “The Happiness Project” by Gretchen Rubin that I just started reading. This gave me the idea to use this blog this year as my own Happiness Project. So, while the title will remain the same, the focus this year will be practicing various ways to make my own life happier. In my work, I assist people with their goals and outlining ways to make positive changes. Here, I will do the same with myself.
The first step is to outline your personal goals, and I am breaking mine up over the 12 months of the year. For January, I want to work on: clearing clutter & getting organized, eating clean and making meat-free meals two days/week, and eliminating negative self-talk. I’ll post how I’m doing and add to mu list each month. Let me know what you are doing for yourself to make this year a great one! Of, yeah, in the book, there are several lists of tips for various subjects. On exercise, I love the first three:
1. Always exercise on Mondays
2. Never skip exercising two days in a row
3. Don’t link exercise to weight loss. Exercise for sanity, not vanity.
