Join us Monday, January 27, 2014 from 11:30am-12:30pm CT on Hand to Hold’s Facebook Wall with Sarina LaMarche, Senior Career and Life Coach with Renee Trudeau & Associates, as we look at how to set realistic goals for self-care this year and how to make them stick, even if you sometimes fall off the wagon. Many of us will be tempted to fall into the “resolution trap” by setting goals that are beyond our reach or that are not realistic.  Our intentions are good, but life gets in the away — especially given the new complexities a NICU stay may have brought to your life.  Connect with fellow parents in the same boat and get re-energized this year so you are more rested, relaxed, healthier and more organized. Sound good? Feel free to submit your questions via private message our Facebook page. I hope to see you there!
