How to Make Healthy Habits Stick
We've all set goals that for some reason or another haven't happened. Believe it or not, there is a science behind whether you achieve your goals. Because of that, these tips can help:
Set a series of smaller goals instead of large goals - Although it can be beneficial to dream big, you may find it more attainable to set smaller goals and celebrate your successes along the way. For example, if your goal is to eat healthier, make an effort to change just one meal a day. Make your goals specific and attainable to succeed.
Always look for new opportunities - You might be surprised how often an opportunity pops up for you to implement your new goal. For example, you can take the stairs instead of the elevator or take a 15-minute walk throughout your day to be more active.
Be patient - Major life changes don't happen instantly and they're not easy! Try not to get frustrated if you don't see immediate progress. Be patient with yourself and celebrate the small victories as you go.

What Are B Corps?
Certified B Corporations (or B Corps), are businesses that uphold the highest social and environmental standards. They are businesses that are putting sustainability at the forefront of their business and do this through a number of different shifts in operations.
In order to receive a B Corp certification, a business is evaluated on their products and services, as well as on their overall positive impact of the company. They have achieved a verified score that assesses their workers, customers, community, and environment. A B Corps' board of directors may also have to have legal documents recording their balance of profit and purpose.
Supporting B Corporations is a vote for the future of how we do business!
