Between taxes and spring cleaning I think we all need a Spa break.
Let’s head out to the salon for our medi-predi and get our feet massaged and our toenails painted pretty and our hands massaged and our fingernails painted pretty… Huh, that’s not what it is called? I am confused AGAIN?

Yes, it is time to slow down your eating. One facet of the study is to eat at least 2 meals every day while sitting down and spend at least 20 minutes eating the meal.
