Start Small to See Big Change

Welcome to the New Year 🎉

My family and I spent NYE with my best friend (and college roommate) and her family. She has a birthday on 12/31 every year so it's always so fun to have a reason to celebrate all the things. I hope you got to celebrate with people you love 🤍

Atomic Habits

Reader, my intent for January is to share with you a bit of the fantastic coaching that James Clear gives in his book Atomic Habits each week.

He is the clearest and best resource I've ever found to help you address the foundational choices you make every day. They all add up to shape you into the woman you'll become tomorrow.

Before I get to that today though, I want to remind you that the B•TRIBAL•FIT membership discounts end at midnight tonight!

So by now, you might be waist-deep in research or commitments for your new year. Big plans. Big dreams. Big goals.

I want to encourage you to focus your efforts on small right now. James Clear calls them Atomic Habits because they are tiny, sometimes undetectable choices that compound powerfully over time.

From Chapter 1 in his book 🗣

If you have ever wondered, "Why don't I do what I say I'm going to do? Why don't I lose weight or save for retirement or start that side business? Why do I say something is important but never seem to make time for it?
The key to creating good habits and breaking bad ones is to understand the fundamental laws. Your habits are shaped by the systems in your life.
A habit is a behavior that has been repeated enough times to become automatic.
The ultimate purpose of habits is to solve the problems of life with as little energy and effort as possible.
Any habit can be broken down into a feedback loop that involved four steps: cue, craving, response and reward.
Cue - the trigger for your brain to initiate a behavior
Craving - the motivation force behind every habit
Response - the actual habit you perform, a thought or action
Reward - the end goal is reached in satisfaction and learning
The Four Laws of Behavior Change are a simple set of rules we can use to build better habits. (1) make it obvious, (2) make it attractive, (3) make it easy, and (4) make it satisfying.

Next Week, we'll dive even deeper together. I hope to help be a useful guide for you this month and year! 🥳

I've been working on a new element of this weekly email for the coming year to make it more sharable. You'll see it at the bottom of every email now. Since so much work goes into it every week, I'd love for more women to be able to read it.

That's where you come in! If you have friends or family who would gain value from what I write, will you share it with them? In order to help you do that, I'm including your own personal link at the bottom of every email.

As a way to say thanks, when someone signs up, I want to send you something in return. My 5 Pillars of Wellness Guide will help you experience even bigger growth on your health journey. I hope you'll share some of your favorite emails in 2023! 🤝

Happy March!! 🌸 I don't know about you, but the warmer weather is bringing my heart so much happiness. Even if "winter weather" is giving us the side eye & eyebrow raise, this past week has felt glorious outside!! Spring is around the corner and so are 8pm sunsets 👏 Sweet Story!! At the beginning of 2024 I was approached by Celebrate Magazine of NW Arkansas. They told me their March issue would focus on highlighting women in the community making a positive difference. Then they asked if they...

Goodbye January, Hello February! Why do we LOVE February? Cause it's short and sweet 💘🍫 Sometimes I make mom jokes and occasionally they are funny. So, my family was A-OK saying hasta-la-vista to January. 👋 Besides the cold dark days of winter and endless at-home icy school days, I came down with a head cold that tested every ounce of my patience and is still somehow lingering!! Meanwhile my husband battled several kidney stones 🙅🏻♂️ I think we ALL need something exciting to look forward to,...
