Feeling good isn’t a reward for being hard on yourself. It’s not about discipline, depriving yourself or militaristic training, nor is it about bacchanalian eating and drinking.

First and foremost, we’d argue it’s about being kind to yourself. One way to do that is to find fun and novel ways to get your heart pumping. To that end, our staff came up with 16 fitness ideas that will keep you out of a boring gym.

How about dealing with an age-old illness or injury? When you’re sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, it might be time to consider alternative healing modalities such as acupuncture. We’ve highlighted local acupuncturists and clinics that can get your “chi” moving in the right direction.

Salt Lake City’s yoga scene is nothing if not surprisingly robust. Those who practice yoga regularly don’t have to be sold on its mood-enhancing benefits. For everyone else, we’ve put together a list of local offerings to help you achieve that perfect stretch.

Finally, where do you go for an expanded view of things? Sometimes, by Jove, you need a psychic. We’ve asked three local soothsayers to speak to how their services fit into the grand scheme of mental well-being.

You’ll find even more unsolicited advice that includes getting started on new alternative diets and overcoming vices. So what are you waiting for? Stop starving yourself and running yourself ragged and kindly start feeling good now.
