When you took stock of 2017 and set out a plan for this new year, did you make a vow to just say no? No to additional commitments, no to volunteering, no to one more extra responsibility?

Daily life is full of to-do lists for the future, along with some nagging regret about the past. I challenge you to let go of the future and the past. Focus on the present and practice mindfulness.

Our palates enjoy exploring new and delicious delicacies that are a mix of different cuisines and cultures.  The mouth-watering creations come from the fusion of two (or more) foods that may not have been paired together previously. The end result is better than the two separately. It may be that your workout routine could use some new pairings, as well. Take it to the next level, and feed your body with fitness fusion!
