"Leverage the Fresh-Start Effect for a Healthy New Year"

with: Heidi Zwart

Thursday Morning, December 17th

7:30 - 9:00 am


Is it fair to say we’re probably all ready to leave 2020 behind and move forward into the hope that comes with a new year? This year has challenged our health, physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually.


According to the fresh-start effect, people are more likely to take action towards a goal after temporal landmarks or special occasions that represent new beginnings. A career crossroads and a new year are both points in time that present an opportunity to kick-start healthy habits.


Infusing strengths-based principles, habit design, and a deep understanding of healthy habits, Heidi will help you leverage the fresh start effect to improve your whole life wellbeing.


  • Change your environment to change your behavior

  • Overcome the intention-action gap that’s kept you from making the change you desire

  • Make your habits smaller and easier for bigger impact


Heidi Zwart is a Master’s Level Counselor, Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, and holds multiple health certifications. For over 25 years, she’s helped people and organizations make healthy changes by infusing strengths-based solutions with habit design to make change stick. She brings creative problem-solving and keen listening for an approach that is realistic, action-oriented, and designed for busy lives. Her mission is to help others know and use their strengths to build healthy habits so that they can experience whole life wellbeing.
