The best gift you can give to yourself and family is the gift of a “happier and less stressed” you! Reduce stress with a vacation at the beach! Orange Beach Alabama is just a short drive to serenity for many living in the South – it’s like our side of the ocean! Never underestimate the value of a long walk in the sand along the Gulf of Mexico. Walking in the sand with bare feet is great way to activate your parasympathetic nervous system (that’s the part of the body that helps you to relax and feel engaged in life). Seriously, who isn’t due for a little rest and relaxation?
