    SPA Girls Podcast – EP223 – What’s Your Word?

    SPA Girls Podcast – EP223 – What’s Your Word?

    We love the idea of visualising a word to describe how you’ll be in 2020.



    What difference could a word make?



    The answer is, it won’t unless you put it into play every day.



    If it’s a word that speaks to you, then make the most of it. Use it. Journal about it. Post it somewhere you can see it. Put it in your phone and calendar.



    You can find out our words and what we intend to do with them in this week’s episode of the SPA Girls Podcast.
