Gym memberships, home workout machines, good shoes, organic foods — being healthy can be expensive. But before you go complaining about the cost of those $150 running shoes, check out these ridiculously over-priced pieces of equipment.

Daybreaker events have been running in New York, London, San Francisco, and L.A. for months, and on November 19, it’s Atlanta’s turn. The concept is simple: A healthy dance party with yoga instead of booze and early morning vibes instead of late night jams. According to organizers, “It is about being in the here and now, surrounded by amazing people, beautiful music, and an incredible vibe. It is about dancing your face off before work and feeling gloriously healthy while doing so. It is about love, it is about mindfulness, and it is about mischief.” We like all of those things, especially mischief, so the WellATL staff will be on hand, and we’d love to meet you face-to-face. Be sure to say hello in between doing some yoga, dancing, and enjoying some fresh coffee, juice, Honest Tea, and KIND breakfast snacks. More deets AND a discount code! >>

In order for us to turn our focus outward — to see what we have to give rather than get — I’ve been looking for some family-friendly ways to give back.
