Why I chose to work smarter, not harder

Why I chose to work smarter, not harder

February 21, 2019

For most of my life, I have been the type of person who makes lists. I used to write things on my to-do list that I had already done, just so I’d have something to cross off. It feels good to put that line through an item, to know that you’ve accomplished something. But when I got a new job, this wasn’t the way the office worked.

Dealing with disappointment after an accomplishment

Dealing with disappointment after an accomplishment

A marathon takes months of planning, preparation, and anticipation. After more than a year of training and waiting, I ran the NYC Marathon on November 4. But, just a few hours after finishing, I found myself dealing with an unforeseen and upsetting reality.

Vision board do's and don't's

Vision board do's and don't's

January 3, 2019

Every January, we get a fresh start, so to speak. A clean slate. A blank piece of paper. But what are you going to do with that blank piece of paper? If you’re already thought about your resolutions and goals, why not take it one step further and create a vision board?

December 27, 2018

And just like that, the end of the year is here. I’m sure some of you (like me) are ready to put 2018 in the books and start fresh, and others are looking back fondly on what was a whirlwind twelve months. But, as we edge closer to 2019, we wanted to look back at our top ten posts of 2018 (in no particular order).

7 fun holiday traditions to make the season sparkle

7 fun holiday traditions to make the season sparkle

December 13, 2018

The last month of the year is busy. With all the holiday parties, dinners, shopping, baking, wrapping, and celebrating, it’s easier than you think to succumb to exhaustion. But, instead of getting rattled by all the things you have on your plate, take a little time to find joy in the season. After all, part of living a full life is appreciating the small moments and focusing on the positive aspects of your life.

Ask yourself,

Ask yourself, "What's the best that could happen?"

Society has a checklist of things we’re expected to do — graduate high school, go to college, find a job, get married, etc. And many of us feel the need to check off the boxes on that list before we can say we’re successful.

How much is our physical well-being impacted by something the majority of us do all day? Off the top of your head, how much time do you spend sitting down? Research shows that we spend 9.3 hours a day on average sitting down — which might not be a surprise to those of us that work at a computer. It’s what everyone does. But how can we counteract all the negative side effects of sitting for too long?

Growth is uncomfortable. It’s unpredictable, it has no clear path. As a classic Type A personality, I love my routines and plans. But as much as I value those things, I know it’s easy to fall victim to your routines.
