We have a hunch: You’ve been spending a lot of time with your partner the past months (emphasis on a lot).
At first, having all that time together might have been fun. All of a sudden you can take a lunch with your partner or go on a midday walk. But chances are, the rush of spending more hours around your best friend wore off long ago!
Have you felt a little more agitated than usual?
Over the past year, most of us have had some extra time for self-reflection (especially if you’ve had to spend weeks in quarantine!).
On the one hand, all the extra time can be a good thing — it allows you to narrow down your passions and hone in on what really brings you joy and meaning.
Raise your hand if you were especially hard on yourself in 2020 (our arms are going up right now, too!).
We faced so many hurdles last year that in the process, many of us have become our own personal punching bags.
Whether you’ve been beating yourself up about work, your home, your body — whatever — it’s time to start showing yourself more love in 2021.
It’s a new year and time we realize life is so much more than work. Life is to be experienced, enjoyed, and most of all lived!
Has anyone ever asked you, “Are you working hard, or hardly working?” This question sums up how so many of us see things — that we should either work ourselves to the bone, or we’re not doing nearly enough.
The more hours you put in doesn’t make for a better life. In fact, it often leads to stress, burnout, and overwhelm because you’re sacrificing self-care in the process.
For many of us, 2021 is feeling a lot like an extension of 2020. And the truth is … the clock striking midnight on December 31st in any given year doesn’t have the power to change your life — YOU do.
So, just like you’ve probably set new goals and decided to take on new projects in 2021, one of the best things you can do is to kick off this year with a healthy mindset. This includes knowing that at any moment of any day you can decide, “This is the first day of the rest of my life.” Or, “This is the moment I take my power back!”
Does it feel like your life got put on hold in 2020 — and now 2021 is feeling like more of the same? You’re not alone!
Maybe you had to cancel a big trip to Europe, put off exchanging “I Do’s” or launching your own business. Pressing pause on big plans, hopes, and dreams since early 2021 has been a reality for most of us.
That’s why today, we want to challenge you to get back to dreaming, planning and expecting great things.
How are you feeling about 2021? While each New Year typically brings a sense of optimism and anticipation, many of us aren’t feeling so hopeful about the year ahead.
And there are good reasons why: The pandemic is still raging, the vaccine rollout will take months, and the recession doesn’t seem to be lifting any time soon. Ugh.
But even though 2020 clearly wasn’t the year we all hoped it would be, that doesn’t mean 2021 has to be a wash, too.
On behalf of our Savvy Miss team, I want to take a moment and thank you for welcoming us into your inbox and life. 2020 has been like no other year and we’re honored you joined us in doing our best to create more joy, self-love, and ease in our lives.
This year, we were thrilled to launch our new EveryDay Happy Show podcast (a true labor of love!) and your enthusiasm and support have meant so much to us.
Most of us want to shut the door on 2020 as fast as possible … and for good reason. This year was a challenge, to say the least. Maybe you weren’t able to see your family, had to postpone big plans like a wedding or move or needed to juggle work and your kids’ distance learning.
While this year didn’t go as we all hoped (to put it mildly), we truly believe there are silver linings to 2020 that made it surprisingly worthwhile.
