Gyms become crowded, motivational quotes flood social media, and several healthy Pinterest recipes are constantly being re-created. While ringing in 2016 with this mindset comes easy for some, creating and sticking to New Years resolutions can be overwhelming and challenging for others. People may find themselves in a slump, right back where they started, or believing they will never receive the results they so desire. Getting back on track and kick starting your health journey can be made simpler again using the Higi app.
