December 2020 Newsletter – Move Better for Life

New Year’s resolutions are frequently overambitious and set us up to fail. Instead, we should think of them as intentions. And as we enter 2021 it is clear the world will still be an uncertain place. So be kind to yourself and set goals that nurture and inspire your wellbeing, make them realistic and achievable. Think about how you might achieve that goal over a year and schedule the time in.

I’d like to set you the challenge of moving just a little bit more each day.

Why? So you can move better for life.
