Health and WellnessAre you feeling tired of being indoors, do you want to regain your energy and rid yourself of those pesky pounds which have accumulated over the winter months. Well you are not alone. It is very typical to add a few extra pounds to help keep us warm and cozy when the winds are cold and blistery. Winter is commonly known as a time of rest and rejuvenation. You might be laughing at the thought of rest with our busy over scheduled lives, so it might be more accurate to say we are less physically active, but rested is questionable.

Finally its spring, and we are desperately wanting to feel the warm winds and sunshine on our skin. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about shedding those extra pounds and regaining your vibrant self for the beautiful summer a head.
