Some days living on the path of wellness is a breeze. It comes naturally and easy and is a total pleasure. Other days it can feel like such hard work with apparent obstacles and obstructions at every turn! And it is on these hard days in particular that we can draw inspiration from our surroundings.
It might be friends, family, colleagues or even complete strangers on a train or in a shop. Figures in the media, a YouTube video or a simple quote. Never underestimate the power of words.
Here are a few inspiring quotes that I love and can always come back to when I need a boost:RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
