Often when I talk to adults about self-care the conversation leads to changes people want to make in their life. These changes may be physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. This seems natural as taking the time to recognize where we do and don’t take care of ourselves builds self-awareness and from awareness blossoms evolution (a.k.a. change).

Many have probably read a quote or two about change being one of the only things we can count on in life. We also know that change can be difficult. People often ask where do I start, how do I get motivated? 

The start of a new year brings a renewed purpose for self-improvement and personal growth. Health and exercise are usually a part of that vision for progress. Whether you have an already established exercise routine or are just starting, I encourage you to include two key components of fitness- balance and flexibility, as part of your goal!
