12 Ways to Achieve Your Wellness Goals in 2018

We’re all too familiar of the feeling of slacking on our New Year’s resolution and goals. We tell ourselves we are going to exercise more, quit our unhealthy habits or try something new. We commit to it for about a month but then, many of us tend to fall back into our same, unhealthy routines a month later. We justify our actions by saying, “This one time won’t hurt,” or “I’ll start next back up again week.” These are our famous last words. Don’t let them be!

Are you interested in a spiritual practice? Is vigorous exercise your goal? Do you want to be drenched in sweat? Yoga can fulfill all of those goals…and more.
