Healthy, Stress-Free Family Tip 8/24

Stay home, stay together

Tape a note to the telephone that says "No!" to remind you not to spread yourself too thin, especially during the holidays. It's fine to make cupcakes for the school party, but do it with your child. And staying home for a night of reading books or watching movies may be a lot more meaningful to your family than a flurry of parties. "Reading aloud, in particular, is a great way to stimulate family conversation," Borba says.
