You know to be healthy and fit, not to mention sleep well and look younger than we actually are, we MUST get a handle on S-T-R-E-S-S! Nothing will wreck pretty much every aspect of your life more than living in a state of underlying stress. This can present as busy-ness, overwhelm, a lack of a sense of control, living with an undercurrent of fear and anxiety or being a “worrier”.
