January is over, and we are one month into the New Year. How are your New Year’s Resolutions coming along? Sometimes it takes a few tries for a new habit to stick, or to reach a big goal, but that’s okay! Trying is important too, and when you can check a resolution off your list, you’ll feel even prouder if it’s something you really worked for.
We asked some of our coaches what they wanted to accomplish this year, and how they are putting in the work. Read below to see what some of them want to accomplish in 2018… and give them some encouragement! Then, add your own resolutions below in the comments…
Stephanie Mayer – Programs & Local Events Coach, Twin Cities and Atlanta (middle)
I would like to dive into the book series “Me Before You,” “Me After You” and “Still Me.”
I do enjoy reading but sadly I have let life get in the way. I need to take more time to “unplug” and unwind with a good book even if it’s just a few pages a night!
Amy Schwager — Crew and Volunteer Coordinator, San Diego (at right)
Our team each decided to choose one word to guide us this year, personally or professional.
I cheated a little, and chose two: “Love Better.”
If I love better, then my marriage, my children, family, friendships, crew program, community, body, mind, and spirit will all benefit and be better.
Staci Roos — Fundraising and Support Coach, San Diego
Live more purposefully!
I have focused on trying to make choices and plan ahead to accomplish the things I know I want in life.
Heather Snyder — Programs and Local Events Coach, Michigan and Philadelphia
Mine is to take better care of myself — physically and mentally.
I’m knocking the physical part out of the park! I’m loving going to the gym 3 to 4 times a week, but I’m still working on the mental part.
Marianne Masterson —Programs and Local Events Coach, San Diego
I used to read ALL the time. Then Facebook on my phone happened. A few months ago, I realized that I’m spending my time in the evening scrolling through Facebook instead of reading books. As a result, reading has become almost non-existent in my life, which makes me sad because it’s one of my most favorite things to do.
So, this year I have resolved to read more. One book down so far for this new year, hoping that many more are to follow!
