Julie’s lessons from 2020
The one thing I learned in 2020:
Maintaining my daily wellness practice has helped me stay grounded during these challenging times. It has also shown me that staying healthy is truly the best defence, especially when it comes to illness.
What I’m planning for 2021:
I’ve been working hard to build a life where I can escape Canadian winters. Finally in 2021 I’ll get to spend several weeks somewhere warm while I continue to work on my business. I’m also looking forward to growing my business, helping my clients to achieve good health and continuing to volunteer in the community.
