Part of the 52 Weeks of Healthy Habits for Bright Light Living Series. Set your intention for the day and then execute.
The Benefits of Making Your Bed Every Morning. A weekly habit--part of the 52 Healthy Habits for Bright Light Living series.
This week’s habit comes in the form of one word—prioritize. As much as we think we can, as much as we desire it. . . We cannot do everything at once.

This week's Healthy Habit is simple, but maybe not so simple . . . go to bed by 10 p.m. And if you don't think that is early enough for you, then adjust the timing to meet your schedule.

But, I did not always consider myself “a writer”. Instead, I considered myself to be someone who liked to write. … Continue reading Embrace Your Value
You will start that diet after the holidays. You will start working out next week. You will tackle your closet clean up next weekend. Does any of this sound familiar? It does for me. For those who have lofty intentions or have started working towards a goal but then "fell off the horse" there is … Continue reading Take a Why Not NOW Attitude
One positive thing that I have gained from this pandemic is the ability to let go of things--worries about what others think of me, FOMO (Fear of Missing Out), and people that, when pressed, would not have my back. I am not talking about my friends, who are all so amazing. What I am referring … Continue reading Surround Yourself With Those Who Have Your Back
