Episode 41: Setting Goals That Help You Become Happier with Natalie Tysdal

Brief summary of show:

Do you set new year's resolutions? A lot of people do, and that's great, but you know how it often goes: we make big plans and then we get busy and those plans fall by the wayside and we don't follow through.

I’ve been there, and I’ve learned how to reframe this over the years so I can actually follow through on what I said I wanted to do. I understand the working mom struggle, it can feel like you don't even have time to breathe let alone set goals. But there is no time better than today to get out of the that feeling of being stuck.

Consider this reframe: setting realistic goals instead of resolutions. This is what we’re talking about in today’s podcast episode. Not only that, but how to set goals that help you become happier, healthy and more excited about your life every single day.

Listen in as we talk about:

  • The top new year’s resolutions that people make -- every year

  • Why those resolutions never seem to stick

  • The power in prioritizing goals over resolutions

  • How to get your family involved in goal setting and vision board planning

  • The science behind why it takes 21 days to form a habit

  • My family tradition to get my family involved in goal setting for the last six years
