January 2020 Newsletter




Hello!

Happy New Year! I hope your 2020 is off to a great start.

If you're looking for an extra shot of inspiration to stay on track with your New Year's Resolutions, I hope you'll check out my new v-log below. I understand some people don't like to make New Year's Resolutions because they're afraid to fail, or because they feel like it's an arbitrary way to focus on goals. If that works well for you, then great! But I'd encourage you to be open to the idea that sometimes, even if we "fail" at our resolutions we still actually learn a lot about ourselves in the process-- and if you're at least trying, then you're in a proactive mindset (proactive mindsets are almost always considered a GOOD THING in psychology:) So if there's any part of you that wants to try a resolution, I'd encourage you to give yourself a chance.

I'm excited to share that my partnership with Wikhow is still going strong, plus PsychologyToday has now invited me to become a contributor! So it looks like my New Year's Resolution may be to keep up with all these opportunities to stay connected. One of my favorite new ways is my Youtube channel (see below) but I'm also getting more into Twitter and Instagram too lately, so maybe I'll see you there as well!

Thank you so much for reading. I'm looking forward to an amazing 2020 with you!

Yours,

Dr. Chloe Carmichael PhD
Licensed Clinical Psychologist

The 5-Step Plan to Achieving Any Goal!


Have you ever vowed to do something — whether it’s as small as crossing an item off your weekend to-do list or as big as a career change — and then procrastinated for so long you never got around to it?

Sometimes, the things we really want to accomplish are so important to us, they induce a level of anxiety that can keep us from getting started. Other times, the sheer excitement we feel when we picture our goal can get overwhelming. And sometimes, we may just not even understand yet why we’re procrastinating at all. Read full blog here!

Having Casual Sex? Here's What To Do If You Start 'Catching Feelings'
Ugh, that phrase.

So you've found yourself "catching feelings" for a person you ~intended~ to keep around for some good old casual sex. Who do you think you are...human?!

Sex with no strings attached can be really fun, but it can also get really complicated. First and foremost, don't beat yourself up for developing feelings: Women are biologically wired to feel attached to their sexual partners, so it's not only common, it's natural.
