Spring is here…or at least it is coming!! I love spring for many reasons. One of them is that it offers a chance to hit the reset button with proverbial “Spring Cleaning.” I am not an everyday kind of cleaner, but I like spring cleaning because it is a chance to clear the clutter.
We are starting our Habits of Health series off with clarity. Our next Habit of Health (HOH) for 2018 is for you to get clear on what “health” means to you.
Here at MaxWell Clinic we talk about “What creates health?” It is such an inspiring question. In order to know what to do to create something, you need to know what you are wanting.
Tis the season of giving and receiving. We wanted to share with you some of our most favorite health focused gifts this year. We often feel guilty prioritizing our well-being, so what a wonderful time of year to give back to your health and the health of those that you love.
