Living your Best Life

Ease into Fall

Use a family calendar

If you have multiple kids, keeping track of everyone’s busy schedules can be a nightmare. Consider getting a large paper calendar for the kitchen and using a different color for each person’s activities. Or if your family is digitally savvy, make a shared family Google calendar or use an app like Cozi to stay on top of everyone’s schedule.

With education in youth, it works on so many levels in the efforts to provide good health, lowered levels of poverty, increased gender equality, better employment opportunities and more efforts for sustainable growth, peace amongst countries and action for climate.
When youth are made a part of these efforts, it allows a confidence not felt before which leads to bigger, brighter futures for these youth.

Make Your Resolutions a Reality

Writing your goals down is the first step in achieving goals.

Writing your goals down is the first step in achieving goals. Consider the difference grocery shopping with or without a list makes. Shopping with a list can allow you to plan and prepare, such as searching circulars for in-store deals, clipping coupons, and meal planning without having to run to the store again. Shopping without a list means relying on your memory – both what you want to get and what you already have. The list simplifies things and allows your mind to not be overwhelmed. Writing your goals does the same.

Keep your eyes on the prize by posting your written goals where you can see them....
