Marit Weikel, a licensed professional counselor at Mission Weight Management, says her work keeps her knee-deep in eating awareness and health coaching. But this year, she says, her own health focus is on clearing out the old to make room for the new.
“We had gotten into a rut with the food in our house, so I was going to pull out some cookbooks and get inspired,” Weikel explains. “But I couldn’t reach the cookbooks because my bookshelf was jam-packed. I realized there was a lot of clutter and disorganization in my home, so I started cleaning out the things that are no longer of use to me. I’m letting go and making room.”
For 2019, Weikel has resolved to build on the good habits she’s established over the last few years, such as her yoga practice, and infuse those habits with new and exciting twists.
“I saw on Facebook that there was a yoga class with kittens,” she says. “Normally I wouldn’t have done it because it’s not part of my routine. But I thought, how often do I get to do yoga with kittens? Do whatever makes it fun for you.”
