How do you create wellness habits that really stick? You might be saying to yourself, “I just don’t want to waste time, money, resources, or attention on the idea that I had - that would bring me joy or peace”.

Perhaps you’ve had an idea that you’ve tried to forget as the weeks of January have gone by?  That you don’t fear you don’t have what it takes? Or doubt that God will give you what you need to do what you feel inspired to do? Rather than getting stuck, how can we do new things that inspire us?

Studies have shown by the end of January, a lot of people feel discouraged because they weren’t able to put into practice all the hopes that had for the new year.
