Mindfulness Tip

So many of us feel stressed, fatigued, rushed and short on quality time. Combat the effects of an overstimulated society by practicing intentional mindfulness and reap the rewards.

I might not be the best, but I’m one step closer to my goal and one step further from where I was a week ago. It was rough and my knees were on fire, but I never gave up…just modified a couple of things. Now I find it easier to WANT to go to the gym. I got this!
