Intentions for 2020: Embracing a Healthy Mind and Gratitude

I’d like to ask you an important question: How are you?

It’s such a broad question that you might be tempted to flash a smile and chirp back, “Busy, but great!” even if it’s not true. This time of year is particularly hectic, and while the holidays can be fun and joyful, they can also be stressful, and sometimes depressing.
