Stress. We all have it. But sometimes we don’t slow down enough to see it creeping up on us. How many times have you looked back and said, “Oh yeah, I guess there WERE red flags waving at me…”So how do you know if you’re stressed—I mean really stressed? Well, in order to avoid a full on meltdown, I’m sharing with you a little visualization I do with myself when I feel things starting to get overwhelming.

All of these demands combined with the busy-ness of the season can lead to a pretty joy-less place.
