There is little denying that Americans on the whole lead pretty stressed-out lives. Not surprisingly, finances and health issues top the stressor list. It makes sense that as our Western ways dial-up stress levels, the popularity of Eastern practices like yoga, massage and meditation is rising quickly. Non-traditional practices offer several key benefits – people can practice in the comfort of one’s home and you don’t require a pricey professional.
If you’re seeking stress relief you may be interested in the Tension Release Exercise (TRE) method. Taught to over 1 million people worldwide, this simple set of six exercises taps into the mind-body connection that empowers people to reduce stress and find inner balance.

First, we all had the classic Mr.Coffee drip machine. Then, the more sophisticated of us upgraded to French press. A few holdovers stuck with their grandmothers’ percolators. Meanwhile, home espresso machines totally became a thing– followed by two opposite ends of the spectrum: the Keurig and the pour over. And where does that leave us we now?

But thankfully, there are people out there who’ve got it all figured out. And they’re not just keeping it to themselves. Artifact’s Coffee Director David Anderson will be sharing all his tips and tricks this week for making the perfect cup of coffee at home. Read More →
