We all have our regularly sought out websites that we sit and scroll through on our tablet while sipping coffee in the morning. More often than not, the content we consume during times like these is filled to the brim with negative headlines and political gossip. Nothing kills your vibe like a good ol’ local news feed. Just like we discussed here, it’s important to audit your content diet (just like a traditional diet). What type of content are you consuming on a regular basis, and how is it affecting you?
We love staying up-to-date on wellness trends and improving our knowledge of the health and wellness world, so we’re pretty much [self-proclaimed] wellness website connoisseurs.
There’s a publication out there for every type of wellness enthusiast, and we’ve got you covered. Looking for some new reads? These are for you:
