Good Vibes and Good Lessons of 2013

Good Vibes and Good Lessons of 2013

What You Need to KnowAs we look back upon the last 12 months, we can enjoy some good vibes and some good lessons. Things we’d love to do all over again, and things we definitely wouldn’t repeat!

Hero AwardOur Successes

Recapping our year here at SaS, we had the privilege to serve new and returning clients, mainly through various speaking and training events. We started to license our online program to other wellness coaches. MJ and 2 colleagues from France co-edited a collective HR book in French, Psychologie positive en environnement professionnel. MJ is also in nomination for the Health Activist Hero Award, and your votes are welcome! If you’d like to endorse MJ’s nomination, you can do so here (all you have to do is click on “endorse” under her photo).

Looking at our most popular posts of 2013, we see a loose theme emerge: relationships of all kinds, and how they influence our wellness. In case you missed them (or would like to revisit them), here they are:


Our lessons

In terms of lessons, we have learned that we needed to give more of our attention to wellness leaders, coaches and professionals. You may have noticed that we have adjusted our posts, updated our site, and designed a licensing opportunity accordingly. We’ve also started to cross-pollinate a little more, bringing you the wisdom of new contributors from time to time. Our content is becoming increasingly focused on cultures of wellness, rather than on individual health habits. We hope you’ve enjoyed those changes, and are open to your feedback at any stage!

What about yours?

If you invest a few quick minutes to do this exercise, what would you say were…

  • Your best successes of 2013? Can you use them to inspire and make 2014 that much more powerful?
  • Your important lessons or take-aways? Can you share them to help others in similar situations?
  • Your biggest enduring challenges? Anything we can help you with in 2014?

Feel free to share in the comment section of our blog, or email info@SmartsAndStamina. We want to make sure our posts are meaningful to you, so please take a quick minute to let us know how we can best serve you in the new year – we’re looking forward to what you have to say!

On this note, we’d like to wish you a very Happy Holiday Season! May it be filled with warm memories you’ll cherish for years to come! See you again in 2014. 😉
