New Year's Resolutions by the BuDhaGirl Scientific Advisory Board

Mid-way through January, it's important to check in with your New Year's Resolutions. Congratulate yourself on what you've started to accomplish, and set a game plan for those resolutions that haven't yet taken flight. If you need a little inspiration to be re-invigorated, you're not alone. Today, the members of the BuDhaGirl Scientific Advisory Board reveal to us their 2017 resolutions. Do any of these resonate with you, BuDhaGirl?

Dr. Sandi Chapman: My 2017 Resolution is to mindfully stop and smell the roses- the lilies - the impatiens - the peonies - everyday. Each representing the wonderfully talented and dedicated people that I am blessed to encounter daily. I often become so focused on my agenda that I fail to stop, listen, enjoy, empathize, connect, laugh, learn and grow from my colleagues. I am poorer for it and will seek to enrich my life and theirs more intentionally in 2017.

Dr. Eric Nestler: Healthy living promotes brain health. My New Year's resolution is to eat better and exercise more, which will add to my productivity and success at home and at work.

Dr. Rosa Rivas: In a confused and uncertain world, the best resolution for this New Year is for us to be determined to be GOOD people. To live heroically by our values is the best resolution. After all, we make up the world, let's make it more certain and filled with the light of kindness, solidarity and hope. 

Dr. Claudia Aguirre: I don't make resolution lists, but I do themes. My theme for 2017 is performance. I'll be exploring fitness, exercise, mental resilience and how these boost human performance.
