The Fine Art of Diving Into a New Year


Diving into a New Year


As much as I love all the festivities and merriment of the holiday season, I deeply appreciate the clearer calendar, uncluttered living spaces and healthy start of diving into a new year.


Do you feel like January is the calm after the storm???

Like most of us, our holidays were filled with friends and family--festive and fun. We hosted, we traveled, we partied and we indulged. Now I'm craving fresh, healthy foods, regular exercise, proper rest and a more health-focused lifestyle for the new year.

I'm more about a theme and a focus for the new year than a list of resolutions. I am also a firm believer that sometimes the only true resolution is this.


They say writing things down will help us keep our focus so this is some of what I'm up to for the new year.


I am scheduling 3 weekly yoga sessions in my calendar as a commitment to myself.

I am keeping up with the monthly massages that I started last spring.

I am eating more fresh veggies and less carbs--being more purposeful about my nutritional choices.

I have booked a sunny escape for next month to beat the welcomed, yet rainy days of El Nino.

I am keeping my 'booty where it belongs'.


My theme for 2016:




2016 is about diving into new challenges and creating new dreams. I am excited about the possibilities.  Trust me, there will be more to come on this topic in the coming months. First step: I'm spending some time on reflection to start the new year.


I can get behind these Zen Habits for an Awesome 2016.

I found this post by my blog friend, Leslie of Gwen Moss, to be especially inspiring for the new year.

This list of healthy juices and smoothies sounds like the right balance from Spa Finder blog.
