Starting out healthier, happier

There is something about the beginning of the year that makes us want to reset and start fresh. Some people are skipping alcoholic beverages for a month--AKA Dry January--after imbibing on all those holiday drinks. Others are challenging themselves to do "something good" everyday whether that's for 100 straight days or the whole year. It's also a good time to plan out a budget to establish savings goals.

If you're a regular reader of our blog or social media posts, you may already know that we took a month-long family vacation back to Val's motherland, The Philippines. And between the holiday eating, travel stress and variations in time and weather, let's just say it's been chaotic for our bodies--especially to our immune and digestive systems. So what about an eating reset? Val's a fan of the Whole30 program so she's doing it again this year. It requires eating only unprocessed foods and eliminates daily staples like sugars, dairy, grains, legumes, etc. that might be affecting our health in bad ways--for 30 days. It sounds really difficult but results range from high energy levels, better sleep to improved focus and even curing diseases. Wow. But hey--it's not for everyone.

Whatever kind of reset (or two) you choose this January, we acknowledge your efforts. Taking a pause to make sure you are setting and hitting those goals are all steps in the process to becoming a healthier, happier you. 🙌🏼

Cheers (raising water bottle) to that!
