Stress-Reducing and Energy for the Holidays…
Or… Anytime…

The Holiday season brings with it the cool, crisp weather, fun and enjoyable festivities, as well as additional stresses from weather changes and shopping, preparing meals for guests, etc…
If you’re already feeling the Holiday Stresses, this can lead to fatigue, and greater risk to colds and flu, putting a damper on what should normally be an enjoyable, fun-filled family time.

So, with the ‘flurry” of activities happening during these holiday months, how do we calm that stressed-out feeling, while improving our energy, and reducing our risk to illness ?
