Stressed out about the holiday season?

This time of year can be such an emotional roller coaster.  But, it doesn’t have to be.  You can find your inner peace while waiting in a line at the mall or baking your fifth batch of cookies.  Megan from HealthGeekChic wrote a beautiful post this week about being present this holiday season.
