It’s cold and the economy has affected our psyche, but with the new Obama administration in place, everyone is hoping for positive change (yes, even the Republicans, right?). We can take charge of our own positivity by volunteering, being active in our community, or taking care of our mind/body. At least that’s what the Dumbo-based health/body related services are here for. And since they’re right here in our neighborhood, it’s a convenient way to recharge and get fit.
