January is a perfect time to start new habits that support your overall wellbeing. The book I have chosen for this month to help us become the greatest version of ourselves is Atomic Habits, by James Clear.
The reason I chose this book is because Clear uses tiny changes to easily create remarkable results (and that is the book's subtitle). I like tiny changes, and I like easy, and I've noticed a couple of bad habits that I would like to change (like scrolling for an hour on reels instead of building my business, my health, or my relationships).
As I go through the book, I will be posting my thoughts, a-ha moments, things that I am doing because of the book, etc. all on facebook - so please follow my progress there to see what I am learning and doing differently.
If you want to grow yourself and do this book challenge with me (yeah let's do it!), then get the book (I have an amazon link below) and follow along on this schedule:

Happy holidays pet parents! 🎄🐶❤🐱
I hope this season for you is beautiful and filled with gratitude. I want to share my gratitude for all of you during this season of thanks and gratitude. Without you I would not be able to share my passion for education for improving pet health care. By working to bridge pet parents and veterinary professionals we will only further improve the lives of the pets we so dearly love.
Now tis that time of year when we shower each other with gifts - including our fur family members! I have compiled a list of some of my favorite pet products that are sure to bring joy to your pet, a smile to your face, and are safe and healthy. Take a look and rest assured if you purchase anything off these lists, you are improving your pet's quality of life...and they sure are worth it.
Thank you and season's greetings!
