What a crazy year it’s been! I know we aren’t even a full week in, but it’s been one roller coaster ride of a week for me.
If you’re also already over 2022, use me as your friendly reminder to keep your mental health in check this year. Your focus might be more on hitting the gym and counting your calories than taking the time to Woosah your way to a happier life, but it’s important to remember your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
Here’s hoping for a better second week of January! Happy New Year!
