If binging on all that newly discounted Valentine's Day chocolate has you feeling a little meh and unmotivated, let us liven up your week. On the menu: jewelry making for beginners, anxiety-reducing yoga, killer relationship advice from awesome people who aren't your parents, and the opening of a new community wellness space that you definitely want to know about.
And if you find yourself needing a drink, don't forget about the Lehigh Valley Beer Week events running through February 24th, too!
Whoops! Life happened and we posted this events roundup late. Hope you found something awesome to do on Monday anyway!
