This is a very busy time of year filled with extra demands both physically and emotionally. It’s easy to get overloaded and overwhelmed and drawn into the stress and chaos of the holiday season.
Using mindfulness strategies can help you to slow down and keep your calm.
There are many different programs and apps to help guide you through meditation, breath work and better sleep. Here is a list of recommendations and resources from some of our Lady Docs!

Wishing you a Relaxed and Happy Holidays!
