We are well into the New Year and I am refreshed and excited for what lies ahead. Typically I use this time to reflect on my previous year; did I meet my goals, what exciting things happened and did anything unexpectedly prevent me from moving forward. Last year I set several goals for myself and actually accomplished many of them. Two of the major highlights of 2011 for me were meeting my idol, Dr. Andrew Weil, father of Integrative Medicine, and becoming a guest-lecturer at Canyon Ranch in Tucson, AZ. This past year was also one of continued stable and good health for me.
For the coming year I have set several intentions and goals for myself. One of which is to complete a one-year course on becoming certified in Integrative Nutrition. I believe that will afford me a plethora of valuable knowledge to pass onto you. I also aim to continue being an ambassador for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society so as to help educate people about MS and what they can do to help create a world free of it. Also stay tuned for new programs and products from Appelbaum Wellness LLC. This year is going to be full of many exciting projects that will directly help you learn to be an active participant in your life, health and wellness.
What will 2012 look like for you? Have you set aside some quiet time to reflect and plan? In order to make the most out of your life, you need to set goals and intentions. By doing so, it’s kind of like having a roadmap for where you want to go over the next year. Of course you can always detour, but with a plan in place you won’t get lost along your journey. And, as one my 25 Insider Secrets Everyone Should Know for Optimal Wellness states, “Remember life is a journey, not a race to be won or lost.” We are meant to experience joy, sorrow, love, abundance, scarcity, positives, negatives, etc. to bring meaning and understanding to our existence. Cherish your life lessons, learn from them, teach others and live a present, purposeful and well life.
Happy, healthy New Year!
To Your Wellness!!
