Make New Year’s goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you’re interested in fully living life in the year to come.
Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level. Goals give our life direction.
What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?
What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?
What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?
Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down – as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go.
The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.”

Resolutions come in many forms. Some people make a promise to change a bad habit, like cutting out junk food, or to make a commitment to develop a positive one like a new exercise program, or volunteering to support a good cause. I always say, my favorite part about this blog is helping connect my readers to just a few of the great brands that are out there!
If wellness is a part of your goals for 2017, then you’re in good company. Today I wanted to share a few companies who are doing things right and may aid in making this the best year ever!

FOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS, BY OPRAH WINFREY
It’s no secret that I’m a sucker for a beautiful, helpful cookbook. And really, if it has Oprah’s name on it you know it’s going to deliver!
Oprah Winfrey will be the first to tell you, she has had a complicated relationship with food. It’s been both a source of delight and comfort for her, but also the cause of an ongoing struggle with her weight. In Food, Health, and Happiness, Oprah shares the recipes that have allowed eating to finally be joyful for her. With dishes created and prepared alongside her favorite chefs, paired with personal essays and memories from Oprah herself, this cookbook offers a candid, behind-the-scenes look into the life (and kitchen!) of one of the most influential and respected celebrities in the world. Delicious, healthy, and easy to prepare, these are the recipes Oprah most loves to make at home and share with friends and family. From simple pleasures like Unfried Chicken and Turkey Chili, to such celebrations of freshness as Tuscan Kale and Apple Salad and Pasta Primavera, this is food as it should be: a taste of happiness, a ritual to be shared, a toast to life.
You can buy this in major bookstores or online!

Just Water is doing everything just right. Many commercialized water models are based on a “the more you use the less you pay for it” principle. That is sustainable when you have an unlimited supply of drinkable water. We don’t. An impact model can have the effect of conservation while creating a new revenue stream from an abundant, historically undervalued resource.
Who is Just? A group who came together to drive social and environmental impact through business. A business that rethinks how we source, deliver and consume the items we hold in our hands every day. A business that combines for-profit energy and non-profit motives with the goal of offering products with impact, affordably. JUST was created to be Better for Everyone®.
