Top 10 Health and Happiness Posts of 2014 6


So we are looking at 2015 right in the face. Can you believe it? We are heading into a new year, which is a great opportunity to review what is going well, and what needs to be adjusted. As I look back at this year, I see a lot of changes in my personal life, and a lot of opportunity for growth. 

Although I don’t totally buy into New Year’s resolutions (oh, that is another post entirely…), I do believe in finding health and happiness for each of us individually. I also know that the holidays can bring forth a good dose of the “winter blues”. If you are interested in reading some tips for dealing with the winter blues, check out these posts:

In addition to these two posts, here are my top 10 health and happiness posts of 2014. Hopefully you will find a few new posts here that can help you move into 2015 with a positive attitude and some skills to help manage the stressors and struggles that come into each of our lives.

    Elizabeth,

    It’s fun to take a glimpse back over some of the posts I’ve read of yours since I met you (met? kinda funny since I’ve never actually seen you in person) but the truth is, you’re one of my best bloggy friends and I’m so happy to know you. Your blog is special and so are you! And now you’ve totally peaked my curiosity, I want to hear about Victoria’s Secret!

    Happy New Year!

    Yes on the learning to say no! That is so vitally important to your well being.

    I love this! BTW- You should totally come link up this post over at the latest Mommy Reality challenge all about the New Year.

    Wishing you a lovely New Year!

    One of the best things about living in a sub-tropical climate is that there is no winter for the most part. It’s still in the 60s and 70s here, which pretty much eliminates seasonal affective disorder around here. Although, people are missing their families so that definitely has an effect, I’m sure. Back in Wisconsin, I froze my buns for 27 years. Now 4 years later, I swear to my husband that we will never move back. The horrible, horrible winters are utterly depressing. Do you live in a place with a cold winter, Elizabeth? So I love the last post here…one sure-fire way to be awesome. Gotta love it. Hope you are doing well.

      I do live in a cold winter place — Utah! Have you ever been here? It is beautiful but certainly can get a little gloomy during the winter months. But, as I say that, I look outside at the beautiful sunshine today, so I certainly can’t complain! I bet you love the climate you are living in. How wonderful that you have experienced some beautiful places!
