05 Jul Being Well Podcast: Start New: Mid-Year Resolutions
We’re halfway through a very strange year, and it’s a good time to take stock, check in with ourselves, and establish some new commitments – even if they’re as simple as being kind to ourselves.
One way we can reclaim our experience of agency is by finding where we do still have influence over our outcomes. And that’s what we’ll be exploring today: how to start anew under the circumstances we find ourselves in.
