Days 3 & 4: Dream, dream, dream
It’s the weekend, so while you’re in Saturday morning savasana spend your weekend dreaming, getting inspired, and thinking about what your ideal life looks like in 10 years. We’ve got some arts and crafts ideas for helping you figure this out.
Day 5: Create
After a weekend of creating possibilities for your best life ever, it’s time to get down and dirty with your goals and fill your goal sheets in. Julie, our U.S. Training Manager, talks about goal setting and how to be a goal coacher.
