#14: Gear up to make 2020 your best year yet
Welcome to issue #14 of The Power Up, the curated email magazine from Man Body Spirit.

Every day I scour the Internet in search of wisdom, habits, inspiration and practical solutions to help improve the mental, physical and spiritual wellbeing of our readers, curating the best bits together in this neat little package – and delivered direct to your inbox. 

This period in the year is one of my favourites – the lull after the Christmas festivities, but before the New Year begins. 

I always make sure to find some time to myself to reflect on the year past and set meaningful intentions that I want to take into the next 12 months. 

So in this issue I’ve gathered a selection of resources that I’ve been referring to and that you might find helpful too.

As ever, I hope you find something useful as you set yourself up for a brilliant 2020.
