1. Take a Fitness Class Together
Get your sweat on! Ask a friend to join you for a yoga, spin or any group fitness class you've been wanting to try (boxing, anyone?). Working out is more fun with a friend - and it may push you to try a little harder during those tougher reps! For some quality one-on-one time afterwards, grab a smoothie together.
2. Go to a Concert
Seeing live music is a great way to spend time with someone new. In a concert setting, there is less pressure to make constant conversation - a relief for the introverts among us! Concerts are a great opportunity to introduce your new friend to something you love, or bond over something you already have in common. Bonus: dancing is great exercise!
Not sure where to turn for an up-to-date and comprehensive list of shows? We suggest downloading the Bandsintown app to see who's playing in your city on any given day.
3. Gallery Hop
Feed your creative side with an afternoon of art. Map out a few galleries and spend an afternoon with a friend jumping from one to the next, chatting about what you like (or don't) and why. Up for a challenge? Set a step goal - aim for 10,000!
4. Plan a Picnic
Warm weather is around the corner, and after a long winter hibernating, there's no better place to be than outside. Pick up some healthy noms you love, ask your friend to do the same, and meet for lunch in your favorite park. Feeling creative? Make it a potluck and recipe swap. Nothing brings people together like snacks and sunshine.
Try out a few of these and let us know how they go! Want to take it to the next level? Grab a friend and sign up for a fitness retreat! Whether a weekend getaway for workouts and wine in the North Fork or a week of sunshine, site seeing and sweating in Europe, you can't beat the mix of workouts, fun activities and relaxing down time!
I love goodies and getting gifts - who doesn't?! So when the subscription gift box trend hit, I got pretty excited! But for someone like me who doesn't wear much makeup (Birchbox), and doesn't have a dog (Bark Box), I quickly passed on the craze thinking there wasn't a box for me.
But then I was introduced to Wellness Tribe, the subscription service dedicated to healthy and natural living!
Read on to find out what's in this month's box, why I'm such a fan of this company, and how to save 10% on your subscription!
A very Happy New Year to all!
After what feels like weeks of parties, dinners, get-togethers and Champagne toasts, we’ve emerged from the warm, cozy holiday season back into the much colder reality of every day life. Between the stages of denial (it seems that fried hors d’oeuvres and sugar cookies do have calories after all!) and the sluggish, lazy feeling I know I’ve had these past few mornings, bouncing back from holiday indulgences is no easy task. Here are a few tips to help make that transition a little easier.
