Why am I sharing this with you?
I am sharing this because there are many things that happen to us on a daily basis that need our attention.
Things that we ignore.
I get it.
This doesn’t mean that we stop caring for ourself.

I don’t have a cure all magic formula.
What I do have is the tips that have helped me deal with this thing called stress.
I want to remind you to think about what triggers your stress.
This could be easy for you or totally stump you.
Either way, it is an important step.
I found that there were certain things that triggered my stress and I was ignoring them.
Ignoring them did not help.
It just made the stress grow.
That is why I am here to remind YOU to take care of yourself.
The tips I share may not resonate with you.
Find something that does and do it.

Stay safe friends.
