Setting and hopefully achieving your goals (no matter how big or small) can help to propel you into the life that you want to live—but it’s not always as easy as it sounds. Have you been the victim of an epic fail of a new year’s resolution or started working towards something and gave up halfway through? We’ve all been there before, but here are a few ways you can work towards your goals without getting overwhelmed and giving up.
Whether you want to admit it or not, we all have that one person (or a few of them) at work who we just don’t get along with or enjoy being around at all. It’s not a crime to dislike someone, but when you have to see them every day and are expected to work well, communicate and be productive in the same environment, it takes some adjusting.
Here are a few tips for dealing with a coworker who you may not like, but definitely aren’t getting away from anytime soon…
Are your cupboards well-stocked? Maybe even a little too well-stocked? If you’re like us, you may have realized that you’ve held onto some ingredients for a while, continuing to push them aside for another day. This month, we felt inspired to do something with those items, making space in our kitchens and trying new things in the process!
It’s Valentine’s Day! You might associate this holiday with heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, fancy dinners, gifts, and romantic relationships. And that’s fine if you enjoy it! But there are also plenty of ways to express love outside of that mold.
This year, we thought we’d share some simple ideas about how to show others that you care about them, as well as how to show yourself some love and kindness.
Need something new to read, watch, or listen to? Each month, we highlight different media that we've enjoyed. Here are our suggestions for February!
As my 27th birthday is approaching, I’ve been thinking a lot about that number. While it’s not that big of a deal and is literally just another year of living, it’s been looming over me for the last few weeks and I have been trying to figure out why that was!
After some thought, I’ve realized that 27 means I’m inching towards 30 and my young, fresh, millennial identity is feeling a little bit threatened! But fear not, I’m getting over it. And here is what I’m taking into consideration in order to do so…
Feeling cold, tired and sad that there isn’t another major holiday that you get to take off work until April? Same, same and same. This time of year is hard! And that’s what they invented Spring Break for—at least that’s what I’m assuming. Planning a getaway can be a stressful experience in and of itself, but if you have the vacation time, a little extra cash and some imagination you can be on your way to a tropical, mountainous, metropolitan, desert, adventure in just a few easy steps!
Even if you don’t totally subscribe to the idea of New Year’s Resolutions, you have to admit that the turn of the new year is a convenient time to set goals. It makes it easier to measure your progress, if nothing else!
Around this time last year, we talked about how to actually keep your New Year’s Resolution—how to set yourself up to achieve your goals (and to help determine if those goals are realistic). We also discussed why it’s important to practice self-compassion while working towards your goals. If you missed these posts (or if you could use a refresher), you might want to check them out when considering your resolutions!
We recently reviewed our resolutions for 2017, and have been thinking about what changes we’d like to make in our lives this year. It can be hard to keep track of and work on a list of multiple personal goals, so we’ve each chosen a single goal to prioritize. If you do want to work on several things this year, that’s awesome too!
Being a millennial in the workplace isn’t the easiest thing in the world! Sometimes we can find ourselves being underestimated, OVERestimated or fall under the radar. Proving that you are a valuable employee is one thing, but what do you do if you find yourself at work feeling like you aren’t being challenged, utilized or recognized for your skill-set?
