Healthy living

When it comes to your health, living well is about addressing aspects of your lifestyle such as your mental outlook and overall physical ability. ‘Wellbeing’ programs and activities, such as running and yoga, are meant to enhance your physical ability as well as promote a positive mental state. Programs and lifestyle changes are notoriously hard, and you shouldn’t give up if you suffer the occasional setback. Connecting with others who are taking similar steps can be encouraging, especially during the difficult times. Below you’ll find user experiences grouped by activity type as well as communities run by expert nonprofits with a focus on particular kinds of wellbeing activities.
