Happy YOU year!

Happy YOU year! I don't know about you guys, but I was really ready for 2017. Last year was a rough one- it was the Chinese Astrology year of the Fire Monkey and that Monkey sure lived up to its wild reputation.

A lot happened last year, and for many of us, myself included, our focus was often on all of those things going on in the world rather than on ourselves. So let's make this year a YOU year. This is a chance to reset, refocus and set some new intentions.

One of my resolutions for the New Year is to prioritize the things that help me feel my best. I find it really challenging to do this with so many other balls to juggles- my practice, my kids, my friends, my family, and oh yeah, my slight obsession with news and politics (who's with me?).

Along with prioritizing these things, I'm also planning on tossing the things that don't help me feel my best- the time suck of social media, the news shows that make me an anxious wreck, and the all too frequent glass(es) of wine. I'm hoping that eliminating some of these things will allow me more time to focus on the good stuff. (and no, that doesn't mean NO Facebook and NO wine, just limiting it!)

I always preach that you can't pour from an empty cup, so I'm recommitting to filling my own cup. That means sticking to my regular workout schedule, getting back on a meal-planning and cooking schedule (if only someone else would do all the dishes), and sticking to regular acupuncture treatments myself! Acupuncture is such an amazing tool to keep our bodies strong, healthy and relaxed, and it's a gift that I am so grateful to be able to share with others. So now I'm committing to giving myself that gift.

What are you committing to do for yourself this year? I'd love to help in anyway possible. I've been building such an awesome network of health and wellness practitioners in the area, so if you're looking for a yoga teacher, a personal trainer, a therapist, or just want some advice on how to stay committed to your goals, don't hesitate to ask! E-mail me at sarah@fairfieldfamilyacu.com

And if you're thinking of committing to regular acupuncture treatments, I have an amazing gift for you! Now through the end of January, I'm offering a 10 pack of sessions for $800. That's $100 off the regular price and total a $400 savings, so get this while it's hot! 

Just a reminder that I do accept out-of-network insurance, and more and more employers are offering this benefit (hooray!), so if you'd like to check your benefits, please fill out this form!
