In early November, Spa Week kicked off the holiday season with a huge relaxation-themed sweepstakes, the “Relax and Play Giveaway.” By entering on our Facebook page, readers entered to win Deepak Chopra’s Leela Video Game, the ultimate hi-tech health experience, developed by world-renowned wellness guru Deepak Chopra, along with an Xbox 360 + Kinect Console (valued at over $499) courtesy of THQ and, of course, a $50 Spa & Wellness Gift Card! With thousands of entries sharing your stress relief holiday tips, we’ve chosen one that we thought represented the joyful holiday spirit at its core. Drum roll please…

Congratulations to Alexis D. from Maryland who shared this invaluable tip for relieving stress during the holidays:

“Laughter – Laugh at the little things over the holidays. There is an abundance of joy and laughter to be had, from children and pets doing silly and funny things, to super cute PDAs that can inspire a chuckle. Laughter helps to ease you though it all.”


Alexis also offered this wonderful acceptance speech after learning she was the big winner:

“Thank you Spa Week for supporting alternative ways for us to de-stress. I am looking forward to bringing Deepak Chopra’s Leela video game with me on my holiday travels as a way to keep my stress level down. Playing games and laughing are some of the best ways to let go and release things that no longer serve you over the holidays and everyday. Remember, this year’s “OMG” moments become next year’s, ‘Do you remember that one time…?’ tales.”

We’re so happy to hear that our winner will be using Leela to de-stress and feel her best this holiday season! To snag your own Leela Video Game, log on to www.deepakchopraleela.com. Happy Holidays!
