My Theme: Root Cause

Updated: Aug 23, 2018

I'm giving my 2018 a theme -- Root Cause. So often I just treat symptoms in my life versus fixing what is actually wrong. For example, I have a dozen tricks to help me handle stress while I ignore fixing what is actually stressing me out. 

2018 is going to be different. I'm going deeper and tackling the real problems in my life. Some examples: 

  • Do an elimination diet to figure out what's actually causing my digestive issues. (Hint, it's probably artificial sweeteners.)

  • Fix my posture instead of just getting massages, stretching and rolling out my aches. 

  • Sit with feelings versus trying to numb them by being busy and stress eating

  • Redesign my life so I have more play, rest and downtime

It's going to be hard. I'm sure I will fail plenty along the way. To be honest, just writing this email feels incredibly scary. But, we don't grow out of comfort.

Reflect on the year ahead. What do you want to commit to? What's your theme?
