Most of us have fitness on the mind this time of year. Even if it isn’t typically your first priority, there’s something about a month-long marathon of cookie nibbling and eggnog sipping that makes you want to dust off the treadmill in the basement and take your yoga pants to yoga for the first time in a while. When we say “fitness,” we’re usually talking about physical fitness…how many miles we can run, how many pounds we can lift, how many sun salutations we can do before our arms give out.
A healthy body is just part of the equation, though…which is why this year, we suggest making your personal fitness plan a three-parter:
• Physical fitness
• Mental fitness
• Financial fitness
This might seem like a lot to tackle, but the good news is, these don’t need to be entirely separate objectives. Instead of three parallel lines, think of it as a triangle, each side stronger because the other two are supporting it.
