The start of a new year often brings a sense of joy, motivation, and possibility. As an entrepreneur and life coach balancing work, wedding planning, and wellness goals, I know firsthand the excitement and stress the beginning of a year can bring.
With my birthday this month as well, January is always a reflective period for me. I feel immense gratitude for the opportunity to usher in another year of dreams and goals pursued. Rather than making lofty resolutions that quickly fall by the wayside, I’m focusing on small, sustainable changes that both honor and nurture my holistic health and well-being in 2024. This is grace.
The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough. — Rabindranath Tagore
Intentional Grace in Practice
With grace in mind, I want to share four simple practices I’m incorporating into my daily routine:
Making Time for Me
Carving out 30 minutes daily for activities like journaling, stretching, or sipping a cup of tea may sound trivial, but it makes a world of difference. This small act of self-care helps me destress, reflect, and recharge — priming me to show up as my best self in all areas of life.
For some reason, we feel we should be perfect and forget that we learn through our mistakes. - Susan Jeffers
Being intentional with my time and self-care allows me to run a growing business, plan an exciting wedding this year, spend time with my family and friends, and support others on their journeys. As a life coach, I’m here to listen to, encourage, and empower my clients, from individuals, teams, and organizations, to nurture their health and lead lives true to their values. It is only fitting that I authentically share my journey with you. Explore more self-care tips here.
If you could use some extra support sticking to New Year’s resolutions or making desired changes in your life, I invite you to explore how life coaching may help. Wishing everyone a phenomenal 2024!
