Have you ever told someone you're a little stressed, maybe having trouble sleeping, and they immediately start nagging "meditate! You should be meditating!"? Me too.

Three Crystals to Help You Survive the Holidays

Food, gifts, family, love… yeah, yeah, we get it. The holidays are meant to be a time of thanks, gratitude and sharing. You know, all the happy good stuff.

I’ve already had a ton of friends swap excuses to avoid heading home, or at the very least dodge the ol’ what-are-you-doing-with-your-life interrogation from Uncle Bart. To keep things moving smoothly, and saving you from losing your mind, it might be time you called on the good joo-joo of the Universe and kept...
