Episode 041 of the Mountain Mantras: Wellness and Life Lessons show features my guest Jen Coken, life coach and stand-up comedian.
We focus on getting you, dear listener, started on the right foot for the new year. Here are eight mantras for an awesome New Year:
1. Take time to reflect on– and bring closure to– the past BEFORE you step into a new opportunity (like the New Year)
2. Celebrate your awesomeness (all that you accomplished as you look back)!
3. Get neuroscience to work in your favor by focusing on the positive
4. Anchor your resolutions in an emotional way
5. Anchor your resolutions with affirmations tied to actions that you keep in a calendar
6. Get an organization system that makes sure that follow up (action) happens
7. View money is as the root of all possibilities (not the root of all evil!)
8. Let go of some of your to-dos (there is likely a reason they didn’t get done).
