Best Of The Week: Holiday Wellness

Can you believe that Christmas is already less than a week away? Fortunately, many of our experts in the community have contributed their timely advice on how to stay balanced in mind, body and spirit during one of the busiest months of the year. We may not all celebrate a picture-perfect Norman Rockwell Christmas (or Hannukah, or Kwanzaa, or Winter Solstice…), but we can always learn to have fun, indulge a little and not take ourselves too seriously. What can possibly be serious about a holiday involving a fat man in a red suit? 

Want to chime in with your own holiday wellness advice before we all rush to the nearest mall for our final weekend of last-minute Christmas shopping? Feel free to share a tip or two in the comments below!
