#2013alive: Take a Deep Breath!

It’s week 4 of December’s 12 Months of Wellness journey. This week, we’re meditating on the benefits of deep breathing.

It’s week 4 for December’s 12 Months of Wellness challenge! Let’s face it—sometimes, the holidays don’t have us feeling all that jolly. Sometimes we can all get a bit … Grinch-y.

To save ourselves from our inner Scrooges, and to keep us merry and bright, we’ve turned our attention this December to de-stressing. So far, we’ve delegated some chores, created a “me” time ritual, and made sleep a priority. This week, we’re using deep breathing techniques and meditation.
