Working in the nonprofit industry can be an incredibly rewarding experience but, like any job, it can also be incredibly draining. So, with that in mind, I’m committing in 2018 to focusing on my personal health and wellness as well as my professional development and success. And I am, of course, doing this in the most cliche way possible: a list of New Year’s Resolutions which I would like to share with you.
First YNPN blog post of 2017. First thought: You survived 2016.
We may be battered from a rough year (don’t even get me started on why… you’re already on the internet, so it should be clear as day).
But thanks for coming back to work.

Ahh, January…. It is as familiar as vitamin-D deprivation, the sales on workout gear and closet organizers, and leafy green vegetables. Each year, about 50 percent of us make new year resolutions, but few of these resolutions survive through winter, let alone the rest of the year. According to the founder of the Canadian Obesity Network, Dr. Arya Sharma, one reason why so many people fail to keep their resolutions is because the goals are unrealistic.
In light of this, I tried to keep my resolutions for 2016 smaller both in number and in scope. I’d love to hear your thoughts on making resolutions and if you have set any specific goals for this year!Read more

The New Year is here, and I need your help! I feel like all the resolutions I’m coming up with are pretty boring because everyone else is doing them. I really want to make a big splash at my job this year - any recommendations on meaningful resolutions that would help me succeed in the non-profit workplace?
