Why You're Starting the New Year Ahead of the Game

As we wind down 2022, I want to thank you all for your support, encouragement, and dedication not only to the Rachel Richards Massage community, but more importantly, to yourselves. In a world that values work productivity and overbooked schedules, it can be hard to find the time or motivation to practice self-care. We fear that a short walk or 10-minute meditation would be better spent checking items off to-do lists. But we sometimes forget that, without taking time for ourselves, not only will our productivity eventually dwindle, but our health and quality of life will decline as well. I want to commend you for finding time for yourselves, even if it's simply taking a couple of minutes to read this newsletter. Every moment that you give yourself is meaningful and is an investment in your wellness and longevity. Be proud of the attention you gave yourself this past year and make a resolution to up your wellness game in 2023!

I'm looking forward to sharing more massage therapy, self-care, and wellness techniques and insights with you in the coming year. If you haven't already, please check out my YouTube channel. You'll find follow-along videos teaching self-massage, breathing and relaxation exercises, stretches, corrective exercises, meditations, and a whole lot more. It's a wonderful resource for boosting your wellness in 2023. While you're there, please subscribe and help me hit 100,000 subscribers in the new year!

Finally, I'd like to share some words of wisdom to inspire and motivate us as we welcome in the new year:
