Living a healthy lifestyle doesn't happen overnight. And it's even harder to not feel isolated or "weird" if your family and friends prefer donuts, soda and fast food to your organic veggies, hummus and kombucha. But even if you can't surround yourself with like minded health nuts then you can at least surround yourself with resources that remind you why you are making choices that make you feel so dang good. Here are some of our favorite podcasts to listen to and wellness websites to keep up with. Not only will you be in the know with the latest research, but you will also feel supported by knowing there are people all over that value their health and will inspire you! When you keep wellness at the forefront of your mind you not only will stay motivated but naturally will become a better version of yourself. #neverstopgrowing
