HEALTH & WELLNESS IN THE NEW YEAR
 
Happy New Year! WPC started off 2019 with a bang, discussing health and wellness goals, enjoying delicious food and drinks and finishing up with a dance party! Our host for the meeting was Edie Driskill with Stomping Grounds in Hilliard and we were treated to tasty food from Olive Tree Mediterranean Cafe, L.A. Catering, The Berwick and Legacy Smokehouse. Beverages were provided by Simple Times Mixers and Noble Cut Distillery and Randy with Connie Duglin Linens gave us beautiful table linens. Our speaker for the month was Jamie Riley who shared “6 Tips to Continue Success in Health & Wellness Goals.”
  1. Have a strong “why.” When you know your “why,” you can endure any “how.”
  2. Do your research and educate yourself. If it’s not a good fit for your lifestyle, you’re more likely to fail.
  3. Nothing is a quick fix and everything takes time. It takes 30 days of consistency to create a habit.
  4. Be prepared. Having a plan in place will help you stay on track
  5. Find an accountability partner. No one is responsible for your success but you. But it is more enjoyable with a friend!
  6. Share with others. Find your “square squad” and share your goals with them. Be mindful of who all you’re sharing with, because people often like to talk about why you won’t succeed.
