Cincinnati, Ohio – March 30, 2009.It’s no secret that stress is a health hazard.It can exacerbate and contribute to conditions like heart disease, diabetes and even cancer.On the other hand, managing stress, especially during turbulent times like the present,can give us energy, make us happier and help us look younger.

During April, National Stress Awareness Month, we are encouraged to identify and deal with stress.And while one of the best ways to relax is a vacation or trip to the spa, given the current state of the economy, who can afford one?But, the good news is armchair travel can be as soothing as the real thing.
