We all need some space from time to time and there is no better way to decompress than me-time meditation. However, alone time should not be reserved for the gym. Whether it’s classes or a personal trainer to spot you in your efforts have a support system makes an entire world of difference.
Being healthy is a process and if you haven’t been giving yourself the time it takes to be healthy then it’s an even longer process. You have to adjust a thousand things to get your formula just right and everyone’s is different. What works for your BFF may not work for you or what works for you may not work for your BFF and so on.
The holiday season is now in full swing and with less than a week to go, last minute shopping and preparing is consuming most of your spare time. In these moments, it’s tempting to relegate your workouts to “I’ll try to fit it in” status but this usually translates into zero workouts until after the New Year.
2016 is almost over, only 3 weeks left. Can you believe it? Did you accomplish all your goals for this year? If not, did you get close? As we head into the holidays it’s normal to find less time for the gym; many folks just completely quit going, figuring they will start back up next year.

It’s November and the start of the Holiday season. Soon you’ll be busy shopping, planning and attending parties, eating rich foods and finding less and less time for working out. If you know this time of year is difficult for you there are many strategies available to help you stay on track.
