As most of you know, I write a monthly blog for MyWell-Being.com, a site that serves as a "guide to getting started on the path to complete well-being in every aspect of your life—health and money, people and play." On their site they explain Well-Being as :

Think about the sense of contentment you get from feeling close and connected to family, friends, and your broader community. That’s well-being.
And remember how good it feels to be financially confident? When your career’s in good shape and you’re on top of your savings—that’s well-being, too.
And let’s not forget the lift you get from the time you spend at play, traveling the world, or exploring new—and old—interests. Well-being, again.Isn't that great? Their philosophy of "well-being" is very much in line with my beliefs of "living well" on a daily basis and what I try to inspire you, my readers, to do through entertaining friends and family, creating a warm home or traveling to a relaxing destination.

Hosting the perfect family dinner or festive cocktail party this time of year can sometimes seem like a big burden. Too often, we feel like our homes have to look perfect and the food has to be expensive and elaborate so we can impress our friends and family. With these high expectations come a lot of stress and not a whole lot of fun...Read the rest of the post and my 3 Solutions for Stress-Free Parties at MyWell-Being.com
