Stress-free Gifts

Ease the mind, body and soul with these inspiring ideas.

By Judith Cookis

Soap and washcloth set,
The Print Gallery, Southfield.

Vigorous aerobic workouts

are so 1989. Today, its all

about yoga and Pilates —

exercises that strengthen the

body and mind, increase

energy and lower stress.

Yet today's quest to de-stress

and detoxify can be, well,

stressful, with all the choices

out there. Organic or low-

fat? Green tea or chai tea?

Tai chi or kung-fu? Hatha

yoga or Feldenkrais?

This holiday season, help

spread inner peace with

gifts designed to ease the

mind, body and soul.

Inspire the mind with

brain-teasing games.

Soothe the body with

aromatherapy p roducts. A

charitable gift helps others

and helps the soul. Whoever

said holiday shopping had

to be a stressful chore?
