Health and Wellness Tip: Know Thyself

There it is.  My laziness, rearing its ugly head.  “I’m too tired.”  “I’m too busy.”  “I’m too…lazy.”  Even as an advocate for health and wellness, as a life coach, health and wellness coach and a personal trainer (well…I will be again once I re-certify), I still have the same struggles as everyone else.  I can… Continue reading Health and Wellness Tip: Know Thyself
