Lindsay Evans & Danielle McGrath | NOURISH LIVE FLOW It’s nearly 2018 and now is the time many of us start to feel the pressure to sit down, put pen to paper and write our list of New Year's resolutions. However, instead of thinking about resolutions this year—which implies that we are not doing things well enough and we, therefore, need to change—we want to challenge you to instead think about intentions and how you can reboot, renew and enhance the things you are already doing right in your life (because we bet there are a lot of things you are doing awesome at!). The fact is that many of us create resolutions that are so over-the-top and unachievable, it’s no surprise when they fail miserably, leading to feelings of guilt and self-resentment. By making this small switch from a pressured outlook to a more empowering one, we can alleviate the burden...
