In today's multitasking, multideadline world,
all of us at one time or another feel a little
frazzled and fed up with the chaos. Even with

keep you going when the going gets tough.
Food equals energyits as simple as that.
Try to eat fresh whole foods that are
in as natural a state as possible. Dont
know what to choose? You cant go wrong
with vibrantly colored fruits and veggies.

tomatoes, broccoli, and berrieshave the
best nutritional benefits.

Stress takes a toll on your health, so
try to do what you can to minimize it.
Some great places to start: Utilize time-honored
breathing and stretching techniques to
make you feel more balanced. And dont
discount the endorphin rush a good workout

bathtub soak, call up an old friend, or
buy yourself fresh flowers for no reason
at all? Taking the edge off always benefits
you in the end.
Even if your body is able to relax,
sometimes its hard to calm your racing
mind. Focus on the positive aspects of
your life and visit a place that recharges
you, be it your favorite forest path or
a world-class museum. Embrace the varied
richness of your life and the opportunities
it affords you to be both compassionate
