Want to kick off the year with a healthy, wealthy, and wise new you? Don’t drop mega bucks on a fancy trainer/life coach/masseuse. Here are some ideas that won’t pull too hard on your purse strings.
Quid Pro Quo
Relax as you help others learn with a rubdown at the Massage Arts Center. Students practice Asian bodywork and massage therapy, and you get to be their lucky guinea pig. Treatments start at $35.
Get free of clutter and pad your wallet in the process with Linda Lightman’s help. As one of eBay’s top 100 sellers, she’ll get top dollar for your items. Or donate clothes you haven’t worn to work in the past year to The Career Wardrobe, which helps others get a jump start on the path to success.
Pins and Needles
If acupuncture seems a little beyond your budget, look no further than Jenny Corbin’s Barefoot Doctor Community Acupuncture Clinic at Angler Movement Arts Center. You’ll find her sliding-scale group sessions are great when you need balance but don’t have a lot of dough.
You’ve tried the gum, the patch, and the pills but you still reach for the pack. Free six-week behavioral group counseling with Clear the Air gives you support when you need it. Several months’ worth of quitting aids will be given throughout the class.
Stretch your budget and your bod when you choose from eleven pay-what-you-can yoga classes at Brio Vim. There are also a variety of classes that prioritize personal and environmental wellness.
Proving it’s not all about the Benjamins.
