So, it’s now two weeks into January and if you haven’t used your newly-purchased gym membership once this year, don’t feel too bad. The gym can be an overwhelming place filled with confusing machines, overly-enthusiastic body builders, and honestly, not enough personal space.
Luckily, there are still ways you can achieve your fitness goals without even stepping foot in a gym, if that’s not your thing.
Losers make excuses, winners make it happen! Ditch the excuses and get going.

On Monday I mentioned one of the healthy habits you can add into your life this year is to take some time for yourself and love yourself a bit more.
It’s no secret that we live in a world filled with high expectations. Living in the digital-age has made it very easy to compare ourselves to other people. The truth is, as much as we know we should, it’s hard to love yourself when you’re constantly bombarded with images of perfection and impossible standards.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter who you are or where you’re at in your life, we can all benefit from a little more self-love.

Happy New Year!

When we were children, each day was an adventure. What If we lived today and each day with that same mindset of curiosity and wonder? How amazing would life be if our main goal was to just wakeup and enjoy each day? I think that in today’s society, it’s almost seen as irresponsible to enjoy life. For some, even the thought simply enjoying the day brings up excuses like ” I can’t do this because ___ ” or ” Yeah, that easier said than done. It’s almost impossible to enjoy life when ____ ” It’s so unfortunate that we’re taught to set ourselves up for life and not live it. It’s not considered “normal” to live with the sole purpose to create something beautiful for the sake of enjoyment, make art daily, and spend time with loved ones. But why not?
