2017 Health & Wellness Guide for RSW Living

Jun 06, 2017 08:13PM ● Published by Melanie Heisinger

Getting healthy and focusing on better health is a common New Year resolution. However, usually by this time in the year, old habits have taken over and good health has gone to the wayside. 

It's so important to stay healthy all year around, and luckily there are plenty of places in the area that support a healthy lifestyle. We've put together a few events, such as Yoga @ Robert L Taylor Community Center, as well as businesses that focus on good health and wellness.  

From taking the 5210 Pledge to shopping at Healthy Living Organic and Natural Market, read on to find out what's happening in the area in our 2017 Health & Wellness Guide.
