Lets stay in front of our health & wellness with some mindfulness exercises & workout routines. Click below & enjoy!

So, I know, it is getting BORING!! But we have found a couple of links you might want to check out if you want something different to do. Remember all those great board games we love – Sorry, Life, Monopoly, Connect 4? Well go check out www.poki.com/en/board, and you’ll find these & so many more! You can play 2 to 4 players – sometimes more, depending on the game, right there in the site. Best of all, its FREE! Now if you are really on the look out for something new to try, hop on over to www.tabletopia.com. They claim they are at 900+ games, so I don’t know everything you will find, but the website is set up in easy to navigate categories like classics, solo, 2-player and easy to learn – also FREE.
