10 Places To Visit in NYC To Improve Health & Wellness
It’s about that time where people start to make New Year’s Resolutions. Personally, I don’t like holding myself to something so strong. I’d rather set a vibe for the year or a very attainable goal, as to not let myself down. But after the crazy holiday season, we sometimes begin to settle back into our old patterns and habitual routine. Luckily, there a places that can help you maintain focus of those resolutions, the self-care one’s that is. Self-care is so important as it helps you achieve your other goals, be your best self, and in turn, being there for your loved ones! This is something I am extremely focused on this year. I’ve made a list of the places that help me re-center, re-focus, and get back on track with those self care goals here in New York City!

be LYMBR is a place to go to get a personalized stretch! Lymbr has stretch therapists that stretch you out for a 30 or 60 minute session. You can choose from stretching to relax your body and mind, stretching to perform if you are often training in the gym, or to recover from working out or just life in general! I honestly prefer this to seeing a massage therapist for my overall health and wellbeing. While a lot of these things are tending to your physical environment, mental health support is just as important to maintain healthy behaviors and that starts with getting your body out of any chronic pain.
