Here’s to an Excellent 2017!
Every year, starting in November through January, I find myself bombarded
by advertisements and commercials, magazines articles and cookbooks that
are aimed at making the year at hand, “the best ever!”
Change what you eat, change what you do, change how you live and it’s
guaranteed that you will have your “best health ever!” Dr.
Oz said it will work! Try this diet, follow this plan, spend your money
or time on this product and surely you will “look your best ever!”
It worked for Chuck Norris... Go to this gym, eat this food, drink this
supplement. You will be “your happiest ever!” Even Oprah Winfrey
is on the bandwagon this year.
I think it’s a bit overwhelming to be compelled to be THE BEST. I’m
pretty sure it isn’t in my genes to be No. 1-I’m just not
as awesome as Bob Harper or Jillian Michaels.
So, this brings me to my point. Why does this year have to be THE BEST?
Can’t it be great or even good? What a tremendous goal to attain!
And really, is that even realistic? If you are working with a CCH Health
Coach, they just might ask you about that.
So let’s get real. This year, I’m hoping that you are able
to choose a piece or two of your life you can improve upon, something
small that will help you have a better year than last year without killing
yourself to be the best! Because, really, I think you are all pretty great already!

you have a better year. Articles include:
