A new lifestyle sounds great. Taking your health and fitness to a place where you still get to live your life, spend time with loved ones, AND enjoy foods and drinks you love? What could be better?!
In this age of heightened connectivity (looking at you, social media) and upticks in movements focused on self care/self love, the phrase “body positivity” is constantly present. Not complaining about this: I wish we all repeated this phrase to ourselves throughout our days, to our friends and family, as often as we need to hear it.
