Productivity Hacks

January 27, 2016


Well we’re nearly through January (I know, how did that happen?!) and this is usually the time when many of us have already given up on or gotten side tracked on our goals and intentions for the year. Totally normal. No need to beat yourself up. Just take a moment to check in and see if the goals and intentions you set for yourself were authentic and true to you. If not, let them go and perhaps hone in on some more genuine goals.

Happy New Year!

January 1, 2016


Here it is! New Years Eve! Another year has come to an end! And what a year it has been! Full, full, full!  Which is probably why I was so craving a quiet, NYE at home 🙂

Do you take time to reflect on the past year?  A beautiful friend of mine writes a letter to herself at the start of each year and then opens it on New Years Day, it’s how she check in on the hopes and dreams she had for the coming year, what she experienced, learned and perhaps neglected.  I love this idea so much!  While I haven’t adopted it yet, (perhaps this year) I always like to take some time in and around New Years Eve to reflect on the year past and what I want to create in the year ahead.
