2019 New Years Resolution

A New Way to Make a New Year’s Resolution

New Year’s resolutions: exciting in January and forgotten about by March. Attempting to make radical changes all at once, full steam ahead, often leads to the demise of the resolution before it even gets a chance to start.

What if instead, your New Year’s resolutions could be a yearlong process?


Long lasting change is accomplished by a series of small, consistent action steps completed over time.  Changing the resolution speed to slow and steady will make your resolution manageable, fun, and successful. This gives you space to enjoy the process towards the resolution as much as accomplishing the actual resolution itself.

My 6 favorite tips to keep motivated on your resolution journey:

Practice Gratitude & Abundance

Allow your New Year’s resolution to come from a place of gratitude and abundance.  An inspired, motivated tone will start your journey off on the right foot! Set aside time with yourself in a quiet place with no distraction and make a list of all the ways achieving this goal will make you feel amazing and add value to your life.

Take Action in Pieces

Set yourself up for success by breaking down your goal into smaller pieces.  Working on smaller pieces allows you more flexibility in making the process work for you. Your resolution is not meant to be fully completed in January. You can add on once you have taken consistent action and accomplished a small part of your goal, and scale back when needed.


Have a Plan


Have a written outline of how you decide to break up your goal into small pieces. Setting monthly goals for yourself is a tangible way to keep you on track. Blocking out time in your calendar to complete the action steps for the month will assist in making this a routine part of your schedule. If you’re building a new routine or habit, try using tools like a daily wall calendar where you can track daily achievements and progress.


Have a Back-Up Plan

A great way to be consistent in your goal is to have a back-up plan if needed. If your resolution is to attend a weekly yoga class at a studio, then have a yoga video picked out that can be completed at home. Life will bring up a day when you have to work late or study for a test. Being prepared with an alternative plan can help you stay on track.


Hold yourself accountable

Schedule an accountability date with yourself or your coach to review your New Year’s resolution and check in on how the current plan is working. Don’t be afraid to make changes to your plan so that the process feels motivating. Be in gratitude to yourself during your check-in for all the amazing work you have done towards your resolution.


Be Kind to Yourself


If you get off track with your New Year’s resolution, remember  you’re human!  Accept this as a neutral fact and keep your energy focused on restarting a small action step to get back on track. Negative self-talk about why you got off track is a distracting, self-sabotaging behavior that will only move you further away from your goal.  


Life is not about always staying on track: it’s about having the courage to take imperfect action and keep getting back on track when you get off.


Need support with accomplishing your resolution?

Here is how much money you can make working with a life coach

Hiring an Experienced Life Coach will earn You More Money.

Time is money! But It’s not always about money. Your time is your most valuable resource. You have spent time thinking about how you want to spend and invest your money, but have you spent the same attention on how you are spending and investing your time?


Imagine your daily energy levels are a bank account.


Each day you have a daily allowance. Every thought and action will cost you, just like every cup of coffee or clothing purchase costs you.

Let’s say you have a $50 a day allowance,

Of course, you would spend a couple of time and energy bucks completing daily tasks such as getting dressed, eating food, and communing but where are the rest of your time and energy bucks going?

Are you spending “time bucks” on the same draining work conversations with your co-workers? because those will cost you a buck here and a buck there each conversation!

Do you then sit at your desk dreading the boring work tasks you have sitting in front of you, which brings up the question why are you still at this job anyways and why haven’t you updated your resume yet? There go a couple of more bucks drawn out of that account!

Then you start texting your friend asking for advise on how to respond to a text you received from this guy you have been dating, even though this relationship has been draining you for months and you can’t remember the last time things were good: subtract a couple of more bucks.


Ready to invest in you?

By lunch time you could be pulling out your time credit card (unfortunately this credit card doesn’t come with flight points or cash back rewards) as your bank account has been long overdrawn because you have been living this way for awhile now. Only with the help of a financial planner could you ever get your bank account off life support.


A Life Coach Helps Prevent an Energetic Overdraft!


Just like a financial planner helps you get clear and organized with your finances and assists you with tools to maximize your investments and savings, a life coach helps you gain clarity and organization on your current goals while setting you up for success in your future investments.

Once the “spending” is stabilized, you can start earning back some of that energy, piece by strategic piece!

Working with a life coach will save you time, energy, and money by helping you identify energy draining habits and habits of distraction (which can often be expensive) and help you get clear on what you need right now to feel alive and in control of your life, instead of your life controlling you.


An experienced life coach will help you out of emotional debt

You’ll even explore new ways to increase your time and energy profits!


Coaching is a dynamic and powerful way to help you navigate and establish momentum on your goals.

Working with a coach will help you:

  • clearly identify your goals

  • explore strategic opportunities to optimize your time & energy

  • break free from self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors that have limited your progress

  • address barriers and discover new possibilities so that you can bridge the space between thinking and doing!


How can a coach immediately help you?

Provides Structure & Guidance

The process along the way of reaching your goal is just as important, if not more important than the goal itself. A coach will help you develop the tools for self-sufficiency that will make decision making a less daunting process.

Having someone to help you break down your goal in to manageable action steps can make the process of achieving your goal doable and fun, instead of overwhelming and frustrating.
— Adriana Gambino

Gain Comforting Clarity

A coach will help you build a stronger relationship to yourself, which will make getting clear on your professional and personal boundaries and day-to-day needs easier.

No need to read your horoscope every time you need to make a decision, you will have the tools to use your own intuition and thoughtfully crafted blue print to make informed and healthy choices for your life.


Provides Expert Support

It’s easy to spend lots of time asking other people what they think you should do, as time quickly passes with no action being taken to change the situation. We so often let our fear stand in the way of taking a smart leap forward, and focusing on this one wild life we’ve been gifted.

A life coach will actually stand with you in your fear and self-doubt and help you see that these are completely normal feelings when you are embarking on a new path.

Skillful life-coaches help open up new possibilities so that the change you want becomes tangible and very possible.

Your coach will help you both with the personal self-management and the concrete structure needed to make change.

With endless support, you will watch your fears and self-doubt melt away as you build a plan of action to move forward on your goal.

“When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.” A coach will be by your side supporting you and providing feedback as you get going. You’ll craft balance and harmony even during difficult situations and a life coach will help you balance moving forward, while keeping your self-care intact.


You’ll Gain A Fresh Perspective


Because sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees

Our minds can be tricky and stubborn- working hard to maintain the status-quo even when we consciously want to shift. The mind will justifying why we should continue with our same unproductive patterns of thoughts and behaviors instead of making the new healthy lifestyle change we need.

The human brain will create many reasons why you should wait to be happy or healthy. Expert Life Coaching will help you identify these barriers and self-sabotaging behaviors and will support you as you step outside your comfort zone.

Your coach will help you create, implement, and sustain new actions: moving your life forward.


Progress & Accountability

By hiring a life coach, you have powerfully declared to yourself that you are ready to invest in your life and your goals.

A coach will help you keep that momentum throughout the process by helping you continue to stay accountable to you.

Life will continue to happen as you work on reaching your goals and there will ALWAYS be a good reason that will justify you pausing on your vision.

A good coach can help you navigate life’s tangles (pedestrian or otherwise) while still guiding you on, not losing track of the larger purpose.

Life is not about always staying on track, but having the courage to take imperfect action and continuously getting back on track when you fall off.
— Adriana Gambino

Reach Your Goals, Faster


Coaching provides a road map to get you to your goal faster. A coach will guide you in creating a strategic plan that outlines manageable action steps, which will save you tons of time and frustration on the way to your goal.

Coaching will also help you uncover old limiting beliefs and replace them with new empowering views making the journey more peaceful and successful.


Making the time to invest in you is priceless.

De-Stress Your Work Day

4 Ways to De-Stress Your Day

While increasing productivity & happiness

busy office work 2.png

1. Create a List

to do list.png
  • Start your day by making a list of tasks that need to be accomplished that day. This will alleviate stress by removing the possibility of forgetting something.

  • Prioritize your tasks.

  •  Start with the highest priority task instead of the fastest task to complete.


2. Monotasking

  • Complete one task at a time.

  • Multitasking will increase stress levels and hinder productivity.

  • From the list you created, choose your first task and set your phone timer for 45 minutes (turn your phone upside or place your phone in your desk drawer) and fully commit to staying present for that period of time on only the task at hand.

  • Turn off alerts and notifications on your computer and phone, as they can create temptation to jump to an unrelated task.

  • Only keep open the computer screens related to the task you are working on.


Want to Stress Less?

3. Take a Break

  • Take breaks away from your work space.

  • Change of scenery will reduce stress by giving your mind a rest and increase your productivity and focus when you return back to work.  

  • Preferably get outside for your break even if only for a few minutes.

  • If you can’t get outside take a few minutes to stand by a window and get some natural light.

  • While on your break: 

    • Put your phone and any other electronics away.

    • Take a few moments to think about something that brings you joy.

    • Catch yourself if you start thinking about your to do list or the task you were working on prior to your break and redirect yourself back to keeping this a time for you to relax.


4. Give Yourself Credit

“Always concentrate on how far you've come, rather than how far you have left to go.” ~Unknown

  • Don’t forget to acknowledge yourself for everything you got done in your day!

  • Positive messaging will increase your mood and overall happiness & health.

4 Ways to Improve Your Sleep

You deserve a solid nights sleep.

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Often the last thing we do prior to falling asleep involves texting, emailing, surfing the web on our phones, watching TV, a combination of these activities all at the same time or just passing out for being exhausted from the day.

Having a transition period from your over stimulating day activities is one of the best ways to improve sleep and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning. Sleep is your time to replenish your mind and body, both have worked hard for you all day.


1. Put all electronics away

Our days are often filled with lots of stimulating activities and many of them revolving around screen time. Continuing with stimulating activities prior to bed can cause disruptions in restful sleep. Putting all electronics away two hours prior to bed will ensures that you are giving yourself well deserved transition time.


2. Choose a transition activity, one that you love

journal.pnLife coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

To slow your mind down from work mode to rest mode choose an activity that you are excited about and feels restful.  Transition ideas include: reading something inspiring and interesting to you, meditating or journaling.



3. Acknowledge yourself for all of your accomplishments from today

Often, we end the day thinking about all the things we didn’t have time to complete or worry about how busy tomorrow is going to be. Taking time to give yourself credit for all your daily accomplishments will create a calmer energy for improved sleep. 


4. Go to sleep and wake up at the same time every day

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Having a consistent sleep routine will help your body naturally slow down at bed time and feel energized in the morning.  Restful sleep will improve both your happiness and health.




Curious about how you can build your healthiest routine?

Building Your Best Morning Routine

Feel better every morning

Mornings can feel like a blur rushing around as the clock moves extra fast. This time of the day can feel so dreaded that many people get their coffee pots ready the night before anticipating the need for a caffeine driven morning. So is it possible to wake up refreshed and ready to start your day without coffee?

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Have a healthy evening routine

The best way to ensure waking up refreshed is getting a restful night's sleep. Having transition time prior to bed will allow your mind to wind down from the day’s activity to rest mode which will improve sleep and set you up for an energized wake-up.


Go old school: Use an alarm clock!

Using an alarm clock instead of your cell phone will help you avoid immediately jumping on your phone. It's far too easy when using your cell phone as an alarm clock to shut off your alarm and check email or respond to a text, or jump on the internet. Set the tone for your day with a relaxing way to get out of bed.

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Set an intention for your day

Take five minutes of quiet time where you can start your day by setting the tone for how you want to feel and what you want to accomplish during that day.  This can be a time to do some deep breathing and start your day from a mindset of purposeful intention and calm.

For example: “ Today I am going to try and stay chill during my commute” or “Just for today, I’m going to close all 37,234 windows on my browser and focus on one thing at a time.”

The beauty of intention setting is that it can be a simple idea, and doesn’t require a PhD in Philosophy. Just pick out a “thing” to focus on shifting or improving.

Keep it small, keep it simple.


Eat breakfast

Life coach-Boston- vegan-plant based- yoga- meditation- health-vegetarian

Eat a breakfast that is well balanced and nutritious. My favorite breakfast is oatmeal with blueberries, apples, walnuts, and flaxseed. This will give your body and mind the fuel it needs to help you have a productive and inspiring day.


A great start to your day can help you set the tone for a day filled with more calm, inspiration and fun! Coffee free.
