Each week there will be two “New” unique exercises accompanied by a healthy tip to help you bring in the New Year with a fresh new outlook.
All exercises can be done with or without weight resistance. Try to add each exercise and tip from the previous week to build an entire NEW routine focused on improving your movement, health and well-being.
No one can change the past and spending time worrying about the future will only lead to more stress and less fulfillment. The present moment is all you have. Try to take a step back, embrace where you are and enjoy it! The here and now is the only place to be, in fact it’s the only place you CAN be.
