How To Make Goal Setting Fun

Think By Design

Healthy TV Episode 095

I’m going to be honest… Goal setting has become really stressful and difficult for me over the past couple of years…

A combination of failing to accomplish past goals, which was itself a consequence of choosing goals that I was not 100% committed to, has led me to dread the thought of goal setting all together.

I could feel my anxiety building over the past couple of months and decided that this year I was going to change tactics.

For me the biggest problem has been NOT THINKING carefully enough about which goals meant the most to me…. and why?  

Obviously this lack of clarity led to a lower levle of commitment which led to me being easily distracted.  And we all know how easy it is to be distracted in our sensory-overload culture! 

So I decided to take a different approach this year and ask a different question to figure out what really are my top goals and aspirations for 2019.

The Simple Solution To Neck Problems

Move By Design

“I gotta hit the gym to work on my neck…” said nobody, ever! 😉

When you consider what the neck does (connects your head to your body) it’s pretty darn important…

The neck is the most free and mobile part of the spine, and in order to be able to move your head around freely and safely, your neck needs to have a strong core… Yes, just like your lower spine/trunk has ‘a core,’ so does your neck!

One of the biggest sign’s that your neck core is not working properly is what’s called anterior spinal distortion. AKA tech neck.

Why Screen Time Is Killing Your Sleep

Life By Design

Healthy TV Episode 091

Am I alone, or are you also in a constant struggle to keep your screen-time in check?

I love my iPhone (and MacBook, and iPad…) and although these devices make my life so much easier in so many ways, they can come with some serious costs…

One major cost is the impact that screen-time has on our brain, and it’s ability to power down at night.

This can disrupt how quickly we can fall asleep, as well as the quality of sleep we get.

For more on how all this happens, check out our White Paper below: Reboot Your Sleep – 4 Ways Technology Is Destroying Your Sleep And What To Do About It.

One of the simplest strategies to help improve your sleep (and therefore your health) is to cut down on screen time at night…. Note I said simple, but far from easy.

That’s why we’ve made it the focus of this month’s challenge at The Wellness Group – to cut out all screen time one hour before bed.

Intrigued? Watch this episode of Healthy TV for the details.
