Don't Be BASIC

Don't Be BASIC

Get inspired to bust out of your routine rut and try something new.

Are you having a basic summer? Meaning... have you resorted to the same, typical seasonal routine?  If your days in the sun are summed up with a morning smoothie bowl + jog on the beach + lunch salad + evening mojitos ... your life is good, but it's not doing you any good! 

Just like any other season, it is possible to get stuck in a summer rut. When you get into a routine, you stop challenging yourself and any wellness improvements will slow or stop. 

Challenge this week is to add (or swap in) a NEW practice to your week. Whether it's a new superfood, workout move or lifestyle practice, it is sure to put you back on the path to positive improvements!
