It’s your choice! How will you do with your wellness goals today? We are creatures of habit, and most of us do what we are familiar with because it feels safe. Even if it’s no longer serving us. Today, take a few moments and reflect on your habits (without judgment). Do those things serve you and help you sustain what wellbeing means to you? Will the things you do today move you in the direction you want to go? Choose one thing that is within your power to control and do that thing for yourself. Maybe it’s just taking two minutes to focus on your breath. Perhaps it’s drinking enough water, or making sure you take a walk. Whatever it needs to be for you, we hope you choose today to hold on to the things that serve you well and let go of a few that no longer help you.
