A GUIDE TO GROWING AS A PERSON

A GUIDE TO GROWING AS A PERSON

2018 was a testing time. It was a big year for me in many ways and for the first time I took a real step back and looked into, what was my life. It was a turning point, time to make some critical decisions about what I wanted to do, the person I wanted to be and the life I wanted to lead. I made my choices and jobs were left, houses were moved, education reignited, toxic people were left behind and some friends decided to walk away – but…

Exercise is good for you. It is beneficial for your health, both physically and mentally. Yet, for many of us, the idea of taking part in exercise is too much like hard work.
