The Power of Setting Goals

The Power of Setting Goals Tagged with:

A little over a year ago I set a goal. I started by saying it to myself with a silent smile. A few weeks later, I started sharing it with my friends. A couple months after that I found myself sharing it with some news reporters and freelance journalists. Before I knew it, I had shared my goal with the cashier at the grocery store, the old lady at the gym, my students, and everyone in between.

Put the Person First Tagged with:

Since entering the adapted physical activity world, I have been a big advocate of the usage of Person-First Language when speaking about individuals with disabilities.

Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) or What? Tagged with:

It wasn’t until Right Fit trainers, Joe, Eric and Brittni returned from teaching a two-hour fitness clinic for 120 Girl Scouts (ages 7 to 12) that I began to think about the article printed in the July/August issue of Strategies: “Should we care that Johnny can’t catch and Susie can’t skip?” What should we do about it?

The Power of Fear

The Power of Fear Tagged with:

Are you afraid of the dark? Are there monsters under your bed? Skeletons in your closet? With Halloween come and gone, one can’t help but find amusement and delight in one’s own fears—from haunted houses to scary movies to terrifying tales passed down with the sole intention of creating fear and eliciting unease.
