Learn to Relax

Listen to the blog here: https://anchor.fm/meghan-greenwood/episodes/Learn-to-Relax-e1aamcd Relaxation is for many of us, a lost art. I asked several local women how they relax.

While I amContinue reading “Just Say Yes”

This applies to in-person AND social media interactions. Therefore, it’s important to keep people in our lives who lift us up, instead of putting us down. (And PS, if you’re feeling crummy after scrolling through Facebook, deleteContinue reading “Spread Kindness”
