  • Hold the Holiday Stress

    by Paula Gallagher | December 18, 2017

    relaxBetween hockey tournaments, sick kids, soccer games, work, holiday get-togethers and renovations (why did we decide to start these in December?!), there just doesn't seem to be enough energy to get everything done. And stress levels are high!

The result of chronic stress to our bodies is disastrous. You can work to reduce the impact of holiday stress by eating right and practicing a few easy stress-management tools. Read more
