At our All-to-All meeting on January 30, 2024, Anastasia Palmer, an administrator in ATAP, presented a talk on wellness and learning resources available for researchers and employees at the Lab.
The presentation started with a question familiar to most of us-
Q: Do New Year’s resolutions work for you?
A: If you’re like many people, the answer might be ‘not so much.’
A more effective approach may be shifting your mindset to intentions for the year. Check out the following resources to get you started:
- YearCompass is a free booklet that helps you reflect on the year and plan the next one. With a set of carefully selected questions and exercises, it enables you to uncover your patterns and design the ideal year for yourself.
- The Self-Coaching Wellness Guide provides a step-by-step guide that directly supports your behavior and lifestyle changes.
- Progress Planning and Tracking Sheet — if checklists are your thing, this tracking sheet will help you support your intentions with a few goals.
- Setting intentions rather than resolutions — tips and exercises to help ground yourself.
- Greater Good’s Favorite Books of 2023 — editors pick the year’s most thought-provoking, practical, and inspirational science books.

Palmer also took the opportunity to reflect on IDEA principles, quoting IDEA strategist Arthur Chan:
“Diversity is a fact. Equity is a choice. Inclusion is an action. Belonging is an outcome.”
