Being healthy means staying in shape physically, but also emotionally.

The effects of stress and mental fatigue on the body are enough to warrant activities dedicated solely to repairing that damage. I’m a big proponent of Restorative Yoga for that very reason.

Another solution that works wonders (and that feels great) is a deep tissue massage—a special type of bodywork that works deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using various techniques to promote recovery and relaxation.

I go to the Exhale Mind Body Spa at the Gansevoort Park Avenue for mine (ask for Fernando). I’m feeling more relaxed just thinking about it.
