Three Ways to Bring More Joy into Your New Year
The new year is just beginning and maybe you’re already wondering how you’re going to crush that lengthy list of resolutions you made. The hard truth is we can’t create lasting change in our lives if we aren’t having fun in the process or enjoying the fruits of our labors. Even wild animals take breaks from hunting and sleeping to play!
This week, I’m sharing links to three articles that I wrote that will help you kick off 2018 with optimism. Wishing you and your family a year full of blessings and happiness!
Many of us set intentions, goals and resolutions each year, but in our quest for redesigning or upgrading our lives we forget one crucial element —to celebrate each success along the way. Celebrating makes working toward our goals more fun. And if we’re having fun, we’re naturally going to create a life that we love.
In my article in the January issue of Vibrant Life Magazine, “Celebrate Everything: 3 Reasons to Add More Celebration to Your Life”, experts share why celebrating matters and how little celebratory rituals can infuse our lives with more joy.
Speaking of joy, do you ever wonder what the keys are to a happy family? While many of us work hard to provide for our families, it’s really the little moments of connection throughout the day that make all the difference to a family’s level of happiness and to a child’s resilience in a fast-paced world. In this month’s issue of KC Parent magazine, check out my article “Happy Family, Happy Life” and learn the eight simple secrets of happy families.
