A quick reminder to stop and take care of yourself.

I have been thinking about how crazy the world is right now and how everyone is feeling something.

I am not going to lie, it’s a bit overwhelming to see so many people struggling. I got a call yesterday from a close family member, who

is not a First Responder asking me how to relieve his stress.  I stopped to think about how I could help and I immediately jumped into


I recorded a quick tip that I have used daily for myself.  You can find the download here: https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1AYlqQWdXJQE19imTahZyGzWl5LO15NzE

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.

Life happens!


This doesn’t mean that we stop caring for ourself.

I don’t have all the answers.

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.

That’s ok.

Find something that does and do it.

Living through this stressful career, and life’s stress has fueled my passion to help as many people as I can.

Stay safe friends.
