Re: Do you meditate?

Fellow anesthesiologist here. Woot woot!

I've been doing Headspace (guided meditation app) for almost 2 years now. It has been transformative...an incredibly positive experience for me.

She's not in to spas, massages, mani's/pedi's/facials. Loves to travel (but we've got a ton of trips planned). I've gone to th...
