The Daily Reminder – Day 26: Emotional Health + Forgiveness

The Daily Reminder – Day 24: Emotional Health + Relaxation

At this point, it is probably not difficult to see a theme in my wellness challenge for us (stillness, relaxation, etc.). Too often, I hear about the busyness of life in my clients and friends, and know that it is also such an important reminder
