What better way to stick to a new hobby than to do it right from your own home?


Try out a yoga practice or an online fitness class (so many to choose from!). Routine exercise not only helps your body feel amazing, but it helps your brain out, too! Watch this awesome TED Talk on the brain-changing benefits of exercise and start incorporating more movement in your life.
