Count Your Change

3 Ways to Change How You Approach Change

Not Okay Is Okay

Five Thoughts to Help You Get Okay With Not Being Okay

Often, new seasons bring new changes, beyond simple shifts in the weather. As fall approaches, it has become apparent this season will be no different. I’ve heard from many folks over the last few weeks about their sense of being less than okay. There’s a little bit of hesitation, fear, or even irritation that they’re having these feelings...

Start Something New

As the new year begins, we encounter a handful of different emotions:

Many of us experience a surge of optimism and renewed energy with the freshness off the new year. Admittedly, many of us are wearied by the thought of another year of the same-old same-old. Yet others of us greet the new year with a bit of trepidation, the familiar is always more comfortable.

4 Easy Approaches to Inspiring Change

Sometimes we have to motivate the people around us to change. Maybe there’s a behavior that needs to stop (or start). Maybe together we need to embark on a new journey. Could be something minor, could be something pretty significant. Either way, we do others a disservice when we assume that everyone will respond to a given change the same way.
