5 THINGS

you can do right now as part of your wellness routine.

1 . Get a Massage - Treat your body to a relaxing or therapeutic massage. Invite your spouse or a friend to join you at the spa.

2 . Read a New Author - Peruse The New York Times Book Review and find some authors you’ve never read.

3. Skip Dessert All Week - Muster your willpower and ignore your sweet tooth until Sunday — then savor every bite of a special dessert.

4. Watch a Documentary - Scan your movie provider and choose an interesting documentary. You might learn something new!

5. Write a Sweet Note - Write a short, kind note and leave it for a loved one to find. You’ll probably “make their day.”
