Happy New Year! Cheers to new beginnings as we round out the first full week of 2020.

I hope you all spent your last days of 2019 surrounded by your favorite people in your favorite way. Whether that meant hanging out at home with your dog and your best friend or at a party with people you know and love and some new friends.

As we get started with our New Year’s resolutions, it’s important to remember not to be too hard or demanding on ourselves.

If you’ve resolved to exercise more, start small.

If you’re dedicating to reading more this year, maybe commit to a new book every two months instead of a book every month.

The best new habits stick when you start with small steps. Trust me ... reading one book a month didn’t work out for me last year, because life can sometimes get in the way. So give yourself room to work around that and enjoy every moment life throws at you in between.
