Is There an Optimal Time to Schedule A Massage?

  I really don’t believe there is any wrong time to schedule a massage. A massage can feel beneficial any time of the day.  I think it’s best to schedule one at different times of they day depending on what you hope to get out of the experience.  One does not need to receive a…

Try a Media Fast!

Fasting is defined as the abstention from something for a period of time. It is primarily used in the terms of food, but can be applied to virtually anything in life. Fasting not only gives us a chance to get away from something, but also the clarity and silence that may be needed in order…
