Your Weekly Portland Club Update: January 16, 2024

Dear Member,


Monthly Mentions

Hello, 2024!
For those new to The Quad, welcome to our weekly newsletter that shares everything happening at the Bay Club and then some.

2024 Wellness Planning
So many of us start the year off with goals and visions, and so many of them fall off as our daily life gets in the way. I just took a course from Jesse Itzler where he talks about planning out the year. One of the methods he uses is setting a quarterly winning habit. It’s do-able! Focus on just one new winning habit at a time. Then you build upon it quarter after quarter. By the end of the year, you should have 4 new winning habits. Lots of research out there talks about how long it takes to build a habit…anywhere from 21-90 days. A few winning habit ideas: walk 10k steps 5 days a week; drink 6-8 glasses of water a day; join a yoga class twice a week; mediate every morning; stop negative self-talk. Write them down, make them happen. Let’s build great habits together!

What We Are Watching
Boys in the Boat! It’s a wonderful inspirational movie for every age. Follow the University of Washington’s rowing team as they compete for gold in the 1936 Olympics. We love the message of achieving your goals together, something our community understands. Also, it might inspire you to row (I personally will pass on that)!
