By the time January ends, you're either super motivated by the progress you've made on your health resolutions or you're running out of ideas and resolve.
That's where we come in.
These ideas will help you stay on track with those health goals. And, we're not just talking getting in shape (although that's definitely on here). We're talking overall health — physical and mental.
Momma Breathe Walk is a 2-mile aerobic walk with yoga and exercise breaks along the way. You'll get to meet other moms and their kiddos. This is great for a healthy mind and body. Meet at 9 a.m. Feb. 9 at Rio Vista Natural Resources Park, 3974 N. Tucson Blvd. Find more info here.
Take a hike. We recently started a new series on hiking around Tucson. The first story was about the Esperero Trail in Sabino Canyon. It'll definitely get your heart pumping and your legs working. Read it here.
Meditation at Himmel Park Library, 1035 N. Treat Ave., is great for mind, body and spirit. This hourlong peer-led session is time for reflection and contemplation away from the noise of every day life. Go at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesdays. Find more info here.
The Loop, a system of paved multi-use paths connecting the Santa Cruz, Rillito and Pantano river parks, is a nice place to wander, which is definitely good for the mind and body. Soak up some Vitamin D and take a stroll or ride your bike. You can find a map here.
U-Pick Tuesdays at Tucson Village Farm, 4210 N. Campbell Ave., allows you and your kids to pick your own fresh veggies to cook at home. All produce grown here is pesticide and herbicide free and grown by youth and community members. It's free to go. You just have to pay for what you want to bring home. Go here for more info.
Get support. Whether you're caring for aging parents with Alzheimer's or need other moms to connect with, there's a group for you.
