What’s Happening: Pause and Reflect


It’s been almost 6 weeks since the beginning of the year: if you made a resolution, how are you doing? Valentine’s Day can sometimes be a bump in the road, but remember: one bad day does not mean you failed. Just make sure it doesn’t turn into a week of bad days, and in a year you’ll never even remember that you caved to the candy hearts.

Stepping back to see the big picture can help you get back on the road to meeting your goals, but even if you’re going strong (or if you never made a resolution at all), it’s still useful to pause and take stock of how you’ve been eating, sleeping, and moving this year. What are you proud of? What have you been struggling with? And what concrete, specific things can you do to stay on a roll with your victories and work on your weak spots?
