Checking In for Mental Health Month

Hey friends! It's Mental Health Month, and I'm wondering how you are.

As the end of the year for school aged kids approaches, and "real" life (rather than the highlight-reel life) demands more -- I am feeling... well, mostly exhausted!

I hope you're doing well and let me know how I can help!

On Spring Cleaning Your Stress Management with Failure Lab Training

Recently, I was spring cleaning my house. “Tasmanian Devil” style, as I like to call it - because there is a certain frenetic energy to it. It looks something like this - I pick up clutter in the family room, bring it to the bathroom, start picking up the bathroom, and then bring a glass to the kitchen, start the dishes, realize the kitchen towels need replacing, and end up in the basement. Start the laundry... Read more
