10 Simple New Year's Resolutions for a Healthier You in 2024
As we bid farewell to the past and welcome the possibilities of the future, there's no better time than now to embrace a healthier lifestyle and initiate positive change in the new year and I remember when I was going through training, my instructors said it takes 21 days to make a change, to change a habit, to develop a habit and I challenge you to take this list and every month dedicate 21 days of that month to adding these powerful habits into your life. You will see an incredible difference in your energy in your spirit in your purpose, and in your own value of yourself.
