Tips for wellness

As 2015 begins, I want to share a simple plan to help you be more consistent in the days ahead. Use what I call the “PLAN method.” I have designed it to help me stay consistent—for example to run every day for the rest of my life. The PLAN method reminds us to: PRIORITIZE first by focusing on what matters the most to us personally; LIST the steps we can take and the people we will associate with to help us—Use an app or pen and paper; ACCOUNTABILITY makes all the difference; Say “NO” to distractions. It is that simple–PLAN; now just do it!
