Being in physical therapy (PT) while maintaining a daily job in any industry is difficult enough, but alcohol is known to be an inflammatory agent for joints and tissues, even though it can seem like a salve to take away physical pain that we may feel.
Finding time is one thing, when it's possible -- easily so -- to spend every waking hour on work projects, and every other waking hour (ahem) on family or social commitments.
Can we also talk about finding space?
So we asked you, any interest in an ABG meet-up during Vinitaly? You said Yes.

A Balanced Glass was invited as guests on an upcoming podcast hosted by Sonoma-based Garden Society, which produces chef-inspired confections with low-dose cannabis as an ingredient. What we discovered was beyond what we imagined.
Let’s face it. For a lot of us, travel is one of those things that really move the needle of our work lives. We travel to make an impact. We travel to expand our professional reach but travel is also one of those things that throws us off balance. Big time.
