There’s something so wonderful about an entirely fresh new year ahead, new starts, new habits, and all that. But there’s also this expectation about New Year’s resolutions and goal-setting. It can be intimidating! In Episode 20 of Edit Your Life, Asha and I share 9 tips to help you reframe New Year’s resolutions and intention setting so that you can figure out the “right” way to set and reach goals — and by right, we mean the way that works best for YOU.
