Welcome to 2021 and a New Season of the ReMIND U Podcast! At the beginning of each year, many of us set goals and and resolutions for the New Year. Whether it's losing weight, or saving money, we often try to meet goals that can sometimes cause us more stress. By March, we have thrown these goals out the window or become frustrated with the process. Does this sound familiar? In this episode, Dr. Kristie offers the idea of living life according to your values as opposed to the traditional "New Year, New You" goals. Our values are the compass that guides our lives and helps us find more moments of joy, compassion, and meaning. In light of the pandemic and the sociocultural struggles we are all facing, let's allow our values to guide us in this New Year!
