Sometimes we just need a “shot in the arm” to help us to feel and do better so we can find the motivation to make bigger changes in our lives. I’ve heard more than one person share that this time a year, it can be easy to feel a little down. The holidays are over, it’s cold and dark out much of the time and “buyer’s remorse” has set in on both credit card debt and the bathroom scale!
Here are 5 quick and easy things you can do today or at least this upcoming weekend to step into the next best version of yourself and feel better fast!
Letter writing is becoming a lost art in today’s technology driven society…writing an email is the fast, easy and cheap way and most of the time, its just the facts… not much else.

The definition of life is change. The economy, relationships, priorities, opportunities, health… the list goes on and on. In fact, the human body changes and renews itself all the time. Your taste buds regenerate every 10 days, your heart regenerates itself 3-4 times in your lifetime, the surface layer of your skin is renewed every 2-4 weeks and some of the cells in your intestines regenerate every 2-3 days! So whether you recognize it or not, You, yourself is constantly changing.
You have on average 50,000 thoughts a day. Some thoughts on your thinking and an easy to use technique to learn to keep the good ones and CANCEL CANCEL the rest! The National Science Foundation’s (NSF) research indicates the average person has approximately 50,000 thoughts a day. Many scientists believe the number is closer to 60,000. Regardless, that is a lot of thoughts! If you are anything like me, when I heard that number, my first thought was, “No way, I’m not smart enough to think 50,000 thoughts a day.”
