Father's Day is coming up in just a little over three weeks. Are you trying to figure out a gift for the man who has just about everything? Giving a gift of wellness says "I love you", it says, "I appreciate all you do", and it says, "I hope you will be in my life for years to come." Here's an idea: Take your dad to counseling with you. Research shows that therapy for fathers can improve wellness and reduce the risk of serious health issues.
Studies done in the past few years indicate that an estimated 90% of illness and disease comes from stress. And we live in an area of extremely HIGH stress. Getting away from traffic, high gas prices, high housing prices, the economy, employment stress and over scheduled families is nearly impossible, but having tools that help us deal with the stress so that it has less effect on our bodies is critical.
