Many of us are ready for change when January arrives. It just feels right. The holidays are over, a new year is beginning, and personal challenge often seems appropriate. However, if we’re not realistic about the challenges we take on, we run the risk of disappointing ourselves and spoiling our best efforts to affect positive change in our lives.
The January issue of alive is inspired by all the ways we can create positive change for ourselves both in our behaviours and in our attitudes. We want readers to feel good about who they are right now while getting excited about what lies ahead. So, whether that means eating a little healthier or learning new ways to conquer fears and overcome obstacles, we’re here to help.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the articles coming up in the January issue of alive.
