How To Actually Stick To Your New Year’s Goals

It's a New Year, which means one sure thing; the question "What's your New Year's resolution?". But how helpful are resolutions at helping you achieve your goals?

Mia Freedman, co-founder of Mamamia, prefers a 'word of the year' to guide her, and in this episode she gives an insight into her word of 2022. Plus, Deb takes us through some of her processes to refresh and prepare for a new year.
