It's only a few days until Christmas. This time of year can be crazy. You’re trying to get everything done including grocery shopping and picking up last minute gifts. It's a little bit stressful.
So I want to give you my 5-5-5 breathing technique that's guaranteed to take you down to a slower place and help you to more peace. Watch this video to learn more.

After you do this exercise, you will feel peaceful and in a much better place. Your head will be cleared, and you can go about your day. I hope...

The point is, there are other things you can do when you feel yourself starting to get frustrated. You can even take...
