    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • Feeling Stressed These Days?

    There are many factors today that can stress us out, making us anxious and worried, limiting us to the work we have to accomplish. Here are some fun and free ways of preventing stress in your life:

    Start a Journal
    Something bothering you? Try writing about it in a journal for 15 minutes a night. This short term focused writing exercise can raise your immunity and improve your functioning, says University of Texas psychologist James W. Pennebaker, Ph.D., an expert on the healing effects of expressive writing.

    Unwind With Music
    Pick a quiet place and listen to music you find calming. Researchers have found that easy listening, classical, or jazz music that is instrumental, steady, harmonic, and has 60-70 beats per minute (similar to a heart rate) reduces anxiety. Or join a community choir for the added health benefit of social interaction.

    Get Exercise
    Anything from a brisk walk to a light jog will work -- in your neighborhood, a nearby park, or in a mall. "Walking gives a physiological, mental, and emotional benefit," says Ruth Ann Carpenter, an active-living consultant. "I have solved many, many challenges in my life on long walks." Or go with a friend. Research shows that improves your odds of keeping new health habits.
