Achieving Your Goals: Happy & Healthy Episode 1

March 21, 2019 Pete Soscia

Project Best Life is proud to announce that season one of Happy and Healthy is now live! It’s available where ever podcasts are found.

It’s no secret that a lot of people view the start to a new year as a time to set goals and make lifestyle changes, but it’s also no secret that most of us lack the motivation to actually follow through with them. We spoke with mindfulness coach, Nicole Chumsky, to figure out how we can get better at achieving our goals. We discuss the struggles that stop us from reaching our goals and the importance of realistic goal setting.

Then we dive deep into three of the most common lifestyle goals that you may have wanted to set for yourself.

Patricia Bax, of Roswell Park Cessation Services and the New York State Smokers’ Quitline, shares some advice for smokers who are trying to quit, and how the New York State Smoker’s Quitline can be a great support tool for those who are struggling with tobacco addiction.

Quitting smoking is a great way to save money, which is something a lot of us would like to get better at. When we gain more control over our expenses, we gain more control over what we can do with our money. Christopher Haigh, Wealth Management Advisor of The Haigh Financial Group, gives some tips on how we can save more money, no matter what lifestyle we may have.

While a lot of people want to get better at managing money, even more want to get better at managing their weight. Clinical dietitian Rachel Simson provides us with helpful tips on how we can lose weight by creating realistic goals and advises us to avoid fad diets such as Keto or juice cleanses.

Listen to the first episode of the Happy & Healthy Podcast to find out the details on how we can achieve our goals!
