We all know it, yet we avoid it like the plague: accountability. Whether it's in a small group, with our finances or in front of the pastry case at Starbucks, we know what we need to do but we don't do it! The Bible talks about this all the time: "The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak." It's our humanity.
Eating healthy is something I get excited to talk about. When we discover foods that promote well-being, the results in our energy levels and productivity can be life-changing!

Welcome to part two of our "Be Happy" series, as we unpack the simple steps to make our lives happier and healthier in 2014. Today our focus is on Staying Hydrated. This helps us improve both physical and mental stamina. A physical health assessment is one of first things I discuss with my clients.

January is here, and most of us are already knee-deep into our New Year's resolutions. How's it going? Starting a New Year fresh is always an amazing opportunity for change. It's a time to celebrate the beauty of second chances and a healthier version of you. In 2014, I wonder how many of us are seeking happiness as the ultimate goal in our pursuits. Is it on the list this year? Maybe not directly, but chances are, happiness awaits you at the end of that spin class you signed up for, or in that stack of books you want to read.
