Tired of Being Tired? Try Yoga Nidra

45 minutes of this rest cleanse is as beneficial as three hours of sleep.

“If you want to get something done,” my grandmother used to say, “ask the busiest woman you know.” That woman is probably you. And you’re probably really tired. We women are busy, busy, busy.

Laughter: It’s Good for Your Health

You know laughing feels good, but did you know it benefits the body too?

The late television personality Milton Berle knew what he was saying when he uttered, “Laughter is an instant vacation.” Take yourself back to a time when you just couldn’t contain your laughter.
