7 Ways to Reclaim Your Happy

7 Ways to Reclaim Your Happy

At the beginning of the year I was in a special place – nervous about first full year of being a full-time entrepreneurs, lots of uncertainties. Made it a point to be happy and enjoy happy moments. I found myself in a situation where I was focusing more on negative things.

I’ve come to realize that when I’m happy and enjoying life, my children respond in a positive manner. My goal is to provide them with habits and routines so they can begin forming healthy wellness routines at an early age.
