Trying to figure out what you would like “your year” to look like?  Here are 3 Tips for setting up your Wish List and sticking to it!!

1.  Brainstorm—write down all your intentions: Goals, dreams, wishes for your Best Life. Make it fun, put together a collage as a family of what you see your dream life or dream family to be.

    • Write down your Personal Goals

    • Write down your Professional Goals

    • Write down your Family Goals: invite your kids to share their thoughts about what they would like to do as a family.

    • Write down your goals with Each child—invite each of your children to share what they would like to do only with you

2.  Organize your space

    • Take time to organize your space, declutter and reorganize home environment. It frees up your energy and time so that you can focus on what is really important and have more fun.

    • Hire a housekeeper to clean in the spring and fall to help do a thorough cleaning

    • Hire a Personal Organizer to help you reorganize your space-a fresh set of eyes to help make your space more efficient, less cluttered.

3.  Focus on your intentions at the start of every day

    • When you wake up each day, set your intentions for the day….what do you want to do for the day, how do you want your day to go.

    • If one of your goals is to exercise 20-30minutes/day, then when you wake up, set you intention to exercise.

    • Remember that your intention can not only be what you want to get DONE that day but how do you want to BE…your heart felt environment…loving, peaceful, joyous day!  Here is to a Blessed Year!!!

 January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that most cervical cancers are caused by the Human Papilloma Virus(HPV)? There are over 100 different types of HPV. Some HPV’s can cause common warts, plantar warts and laryngeal papilloma’s. Some however can cause cancer. The most aggressive forms of HPV (#16, 18, 31 and 33)  are the biggest culprits in causing some cancers seen in women and men. There is a vaccine that has been available for almost 10 years now to protect our daughters and sons from the most aggressive forms of cervical cancer—the HPV vaccine!  The vaccine is given in a series of 3 within 6 months of each other. It is used to prevent the most aggressive forms of Human Papilloma Virus that can cause cervical, vaginal, and vulvar cancers in girls; it is also used to prevent oral and throat, penile and anal cancers in boys and is also effective for preventing genital warts. If you have a son or daughter that is 11 or 12 years old, talk to your pediatrician about getting the HPV vaccine which can prevent these cancers.  As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!!! Have a blessed day!
