Under the Uruguayan Sun
Uruguay is by far the most unique and underrated country I have ever traveled to. When thinking about South American destinations, most of us automatically think of Colombia or Brazil; however, if you are considering a trip, then Uruguay should be at the top of your list.

However, while I was able to meet the goals, I would inevitably fall off the wagon and quit the habits soon after the event happened. My focus was on accomplishing the goal and not on building a sustainable wellness habit which I could stick to for the long term. I was treating my wellness as a means to an end.
