Health & Wellness in Downtown Duncan
There’s something about January with its newness – a new month, a new year and even a new calendar (and if you haven’t got one yet, check out the 2015 E.J. Hughes at Excellent Frameworks) that makes us want to recalibrate. With the cheer and noise of the holidays behind us, we take the time to slow down, breathe, and focus on finding (or regaining) some balance in our lives.
