Happy New Year!
The economic times are tough. But it is important for you to keep up with one key investment - YOU! Taking care of yourself means you will come out the other side stronger, healthier and happier. Resolve to invest in yourself in 2009. I do not have much to invest - but I am going to vow to invest in myself this year. It may be simple - like time for ME- alone. It may be a healthy investment like organic blueberries - which I love. It may be technical - like $5 a week on 5 iTunes songs to reward myself when I get my 5 miles in each day. Music inspires me and helps me to push harder when I am working out. You find what works for you and what you can do to invest in making you a better YOU! You will feel better and we should compare notes along the way! Email me with your "investment" and I'll share here on the blog!
Together we are better!
Change is good! I challenge you to change!
Do something you don't usually do -
or stop doing something you should.
Change it up!
Vow to do something different each day in the month of January.
Keep a list of what you do each day. Send it to me in February!
I'd love to see it! firstname.lastname@example.org
I'll post mine each day - here are some ideas off the cuff...
