These Better-For-You Mocktails Will Help You Celebrate Those Everyday Fitness Milestones

Fitness is more than just a thing you do to get muscles or lose weight — it’s a method for feeling good. It’s a way to boost your mental health, physical health, and long-term health, and it doesn’t have to be daunting. Fitness can come in so many different forms, from a high-intensity circuit to stretching between work meetings. And those little accomplishments deserve a pat on the back!

Keep scrolling for a few fitness moments throughout the day that deserve some recognition.
