Looking for Stress Relief & a Way to Find Balance in Your Life? Take a Cue from Your Checkbook! Here's Why!

I have always felt slightly irritated when reading articles telling me that I should find balance in my life. For me it conjures up visions of yoga on the beach, meditating twice a day and long walks through the countryside. When I am I supposed to get around to that on a daily basis?

  • Work all day.
  • Make dinner.
  • Drop kids off at practice.
  • Take cat to the vet.
  • Find balance.
