I’m not the biggest fan of winter. I’d much rather be soaking up some rays poolside with a margarita in my hand during the winter months….but I live in Chicago, so I’m unfortunately not dealt that weather card during the winter.
As a born and raised Chicagoan though, I have come up with some tried-and-true strategies over the years to not only survive November – April, but to thrive and actually enjoy life during these snowy and frigid months. I haven’t always been able to see the bright side of winter, and I’ve had my fair share of wondering why I haven’t moved south yet, but I’ve found that the right mindset and tools to deal with the cold weather can dramatically improve the situation.

I feel you. I used to be the complete opposite of a morning person, a total night owl. I would scoff at people who told me that they loved the wee hours of the morning, and thought they were absolutely insane. [Read more…]
Do you find yourself setting goals to help you reach your dreams, but never actually accomplishing those goals?
We’ve all been there.

We all want to make positive improvements in our lives, but sometimes it can be overwhelming to figure out where to begin.
I personally love the inspiration I get from reading a good self-development book. While you actually have to do the work to apply the strategies provided to your own life to have them make an impact, it all starts with that motivation that comes from a spark of inspiration while you’re reading.
I know that I can’t be the only one who is always on the lookout for some good self-development books, so I decided to do a round up of a few of my favorites to share with you all today!
These books all focus on different areas of your life, and will hopefully provide you with some encouragement and information to help you live your best life. The books I mention below cover a range of topics that include: ways to create happiness, how to live with less, living a healthier life, developing better habits, and tips for being successful in all aspects of life.

Showing gratitude for others seems to be something that happens less and less in today’s world filled with too many screens and not enough face-to-face time.
Between running kids to and from appointment and activities, juggling work and duties around your home, and trying to keep up with your daily responsibilities, it can be easy to forget to make the time to show sincere gratitude for others. I think it’s so important for our relationships and our happiness to make a point to try to brighten someone else’s day and let them know how much they mean to us. After all, our time with them may be much shorter than we realize. [Read more…]
