Let It Be Good!

Let It Be Good!

I have a contentious complainer that lives inside my head, who is really good at pointing out everything that is “bad” about everything. When my inner critic is the only inner voice I listen to, I feel grumpy, reactive, stuck and judgmental. Sound familiar? It turns out that it’s normal and even adaptive to have a loud inner critic designed to get our attention.

Sunday Blues

Sunday Blues

Thank god it’s Friday! A sigh of relief descends over the island of Manhattan. For the next 48 hours, we are free! We can forget about the micro-managing boss, the nagging client, the deadlines, and reports. We are free to sleep late, go to the gym after the sun has risen, and stay up past 10:30. Weekends, I love you so. If only every weekend could be three days long!

Broken Resolutions?

Broken Resolutions?

Resolutions are tricky. They come with such promise and most of us are brimming with conviction and motivation to stick to them after spending the holiday season brimming with excess food and alcohol. It seems the perfect time to buck up, bear down, do right, break those bad habits and finally feel good about making some positive improvements to ourselves and our lifestyle. But, according to Brain Statistics latest research, of 45% of Americans who make New Year Resolutions, only 8% of people are actually successful at achieving their goals.
