Welcome to 2021!
If you’re finding yourself feeling a bit less than this year with all of the “New Year, New You” talk, an unwillingness to set an arbitrary resolution or finding yourself already struggling to adhere to an unrealistic expectation you set for yourself, this episode is for you.
Today Michelle and Brad are talking all about their thoughts behind why New Year’s resolutions often fail, how we should instead be reframing January and what they really think about America’s favorite January pastime. *Hint* #dated #dumb
If this January you’re looking for advice on how to maximize your days at the gym, cut every bit of decadence from your diet, how to lose X amount of weight in X amount of days...you’re probably in the wrong place. But! If you’re feeling unimpressed with the onslaught of January propaganda heading your way, you’re going to want to hear this conversation.
Michelle and Brad’s take on this topic is refreshing and realistic. By the time you walk away from this episode, you’re going to feel a more purposeful and inspired outlook for the coming year.
