10 ways to save money on a gym membership

With a little planning, you can save big bucks on just about anything―even a gym membership. Here are 10 ways to get into a gym without spending a fortune. 1. Wait for the off-season January is not the best time to join the gym. Everyone has "exercise more" near the top of their list of new year resolutions, and gyms know this.

Is it depression? Recognize the signs.

For many people, the holidays aren't filled with joy and laughter. A few hectic weeks of parties and family get-togethers can dredge up old feelings of anger, regret, stress or loneliness.

Amore

Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier. - Mother Teresa It's the season of amore. So let's create some love! What better way is there to feel loved than to give love to other people? Pen some praise. It's easy to turn to social media when something goes wrong.
