Volunteer: Can’t afford your Bikram yoga anymore? Volunteer to clean the studio. Free yoga and a little extra exercise.
Take care of yourself: This is absolutely the most important aspect of all. Living with or without health insurance, taking care of yourself on a day-to-day, meal-to-meal basis could end up saving your life.
• Eat the right foods: Fresh fruit and veggies, good fats, and a moderate diet. Food is medicine, eat the right stuff!
• Exercise: It not only prevents injuries, but gives you energy, releases endorphins to make you happy, releases stress and anxiousness, the benefits go on and on!
• Stay positive: Don’t forget to keep your chin up. If you’re reading this on a computer screen, chances off you’re better off than millions of others around the world. Staying positive can protect your health and wellbeing, and it’s a great character builder!
