1:00 Inspired Change

We all have areas of our life we would like to change, from improving aspects of our health and wellness to setting a new course for our life or career. But oftentimes change can feel hard, confusing, or even impossible. We can easily feel stuck and overwhelmed. Join Meg Root, our resident wellness coach, to learn how to drop the struggle associated with change and infuse your journey with joy and optimism.

  • Learn why traditional strategies like S.M.A.R.T. Goal Setting, finding your “why,” and using willpower to change, often fall short of helping us reach our goals.
  • Replace these worn out strategies with a new, more positive approach called Inspired G.O.A.L. Setting.
  • Discover how you already have all you need to bring your dreams and aspirations to life by learning how to take inspired action.
  • Embrace your new path with positivity and confidence using Meg’s no-fail, feel-good system for making positive choices.
