Author, studio owner, and Deepak Chopra's and Jane Fonda's go-to yoga girl Tara Stiles knows what it's like to be busy. When we asked her for her shopping-spree purse essentials, she knew that the secret to juggling a lot is to keep it simple. "A Klean Kanteen of water to stay hydrated and a clear idea of what I want to spend," she said. And she was quick to extend some very helpful advice for the stressed among us: "Less is more. Friends and family love you the same if you get them something expensive and over-the-top or make them a homemade card."
Strike a pose: They may be in her head, not her purse, but you can bet Tara's also carrying around an arsenal of relaxing yoga poses to get into when thing's become stressful. We recently asked Tara for her favorite way to relieve stress. Her answer? The pigeon pose. While you may not be able to drop your shopping bags and hit the mall floor in this pose, try the pigeon pose to relieve stress when you get home after a day of shopping.
