Restful nights breed happier days, and I think we all deserve to wake up feeling refreshed more often than not. Learn how to fall asleep easier with this physician-approved relaxation technique (I’ve tried it and it’s really helpful when I can’t seem to get my brain to stop going, going, going).
The body is our home in this life. It is a means of experiencing life and communicating a message of love, if we so choose. Honor your body. Practice kindness and respect, and this is what you will receive in return.
When body, mind, and spirit unite as one, I think we’re a little closer to who we truly are on every level.
