As busy ladies and parents, we’re beginning to realize just how much harder it’s going to be to keep those resolutions we’ve set for ourselves, just a few weeks ago.
We can wash our hands of the poor choices we made in 2013 or the couple pounds we’ve gained, but “new year” means a lot of pressure.
One goal perhaps we can all uphold is to relax just a little each day.
Whether that means taking the more-scenic route to grab the morning coffee or meditating for 10 minutes at our desks between the deadlines and meetings.
We’ve compiled some of the best apps to aid in your new found relaxation routine, so that’s one less thing you have to worry about!
