Life in the city is fast-paced and demanding and we are all under a lot of pressure to keep up. As exciting and compelling as New York City is, over time it wears us down as well. We all need to develop our practices of taking care of ourselves and finding the support we need to endure. I rely on taking my short moments to reboot throughout the day. I also turn to my acupuncturist, eating right and having fun with friends spontaneously. If things feel over scheduled, I start to overflow. Being able to throw together a casual glass of wine at home with some of the neighborhood moms and our kids can do a world of good--as long as it's not too much wine!
