It is a brand new year. Where did 2015 go?
We have had a whirlwind year. There have been a lot of exciting things happening at Well.ca and things have been equally busy at home with five kids between us (all under the age of five!). Balancing busy careers with family, life and our own health and wellness…well, it can be challenging. We know from our Well.ca customers that we aren’t alone – life is busy, but it is a good busy. Both of us are incredibly grateful for the lessons 2015 taught us, and we have goals for 2016. Do you?
The New Year is a great time to renew and refresh. We surveyed you, our Well.ca customers, and learned that more than 80 percent of you do make resolutions and of those who have made resolutions in the past, over 60% said they had made a meaningful change in their life through a New Year’s resolution. That’s exciting, right?! Why not choose 2016 as the year to finally make changes you long to make? And why don’t we all do this together? You have already told us this year you want to eat healthier, exercise more, reduce your stress and make greener choices. Good goals!
We want to help you achieve your goals!
We’re going to start 2016 with a bang! Our team has pulled together everything you need to get started with great product toolkits for top resolutions and we are thrilled to launch a resolutions series of exciting articles coming at you in the next few weeks jammed with information about healthy living, exercise, reducing stress, cleansing and detoxing, all you need to know about vitamins and how to make your routine greener – tips, interviews, research, recipes and more to help you on your journey towards health and renewal. We will be drawing on some of our favourite experts to help answer all of our questions about health and wellness for 2016!
We are jumping in with our own resolutions, too: Erin wants to up her workouts and figure out ways to exercise at home-Rebecca wants to get her vitamin intake (and knowledge) up to speed, and to figure out a way to do more yoga. We both want fresh ideas for cooking and eating healthy, and ideas to go a little greener at home and with our families.
Finally, we have one resolution we are working on together…trying to achieve more balance in 2016 (if you have the secret, please let us know!). Balance can be a bit of a loaded term but for us, in 2016, it means things like not sweating the small stuff, carving out a bit of personal time in our busy lives or just savouring everyday experiences with our growing children. The beauty of working so closely together is that we can share what’s working and what isn’t and keep each other honest!
Resolutions are easier to keep when you are accountable. You, our customers, have told us that your resolutions have been most successful when you share them with friends and family and when you break them down into small attainable goals. So we invite you to join the discussion – share your own goals on the Well.ca Facebook page, post your healthy meals on Instagram and tag us, and Tweet to us and the Well.ca community using the hashtag #WellNewYear – about the pounds or inches you have lost, commitments you have made and kept, goals you are reaching, one step at a time. We hope that committing publicly is going to be a game changer for both of us…and for all of you.
Be Well. We are all in this together.
Happy New Year and Happy New You!
