Editor’s Page: March Forth!


Today is March 4th–a perfect day to take time to renew the New Year’s plans and goals you set that maybe are starting to fall behind.

The middle to end of February seems to be the time when the shiny newness of your plans begins to tarnish a little.

You may start falling back into your same old routines and ‘forget’ that you gave up sweets or working out.

If you’re dealing with a chronic pain and fatigue condition (as I am), then you know how cold temperatures and dark days can bring on symptoms that can sabotage your wellness goals.

And if you live in a cold, snowy climate–say anywhere in the upper Northern hemisphere–then you know that it’s still Winter out there, maybe til the end of April. Even though the Spring equinox is just two weeks away, we here in the tundra have a hard time envisioning that.

Let’s March Forth!

So, what I am proposing is to make today–March 4th–a day to renew our commitment to our Wellness Plan and–March Forth with it. Make this the day you say, “I am going to do this!”

This is something I need to do myself. The fibromyalgia I deal with threatens to flare up with each weekly major snow storm. I know I have to work to keep it from knocking me down, like the strong winds that are blowing today want to do.

My other challenge is being the sole proprietor of a business with no one else to staff it. Even though it’s an online business and all I have to do is write, I still have days where I just need to “call in sick”. That is why there are so many long gaps between articles.

I have no doubt that anyone following this page in the past three years since it was put up, has given up on me by now.  I’ve been told that I need to add new content daily and it’s been closer to quarterly for me.

That’s another reason for my March Forth” Campaign. Along with being a re-dedication to my wellness plan, it’s also a re-dedication to this virtual wellness center:

“I pledge that my readers find new things every week”

(Rather than every three months!)

Now, I ask you all to hold me to this. If you don’t see something new in two weeks running, then check in at the Center’s Community Hub at Facebook and give me a “poke”. Say something like “Hey, Kat–where are you? I haven’t seen anything new in two weeks!”

Another thing you could do is post a comment to an article in the Journal, even if it’s just “good article!” or even “I don’t know what you’re talking about!” Knowing people are seeing what I post is a great motivational tool.

So, what do you think? Are you with me on the ‘March Forth’ toward a fabulous rest of the year?

Great! I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
