When we talk about health, inevitably the conversation focuses on exercise and eating right. There’s nothing wrong with that, both things have a lot to do with our health, but these two topics so often monopolize the chatter that we forget about some of the other aspects that also play a roll, like stress management and relaxation, and our sleep habits, for example.

So, since we’re about to enter into what’s undoubtedly one of the busiest and most hectic seasons of the year, I figured now is a great time to share my favorite relaxation and de-stressing techniques. My favorite ways to unwind, if you will Read More
