Welp, 2014 has been a helluva year for me in a good and bad way. I re-branded myself and set off for a new lifestyle destination that called for me to move into a new office space and a new house. Because I’m a veteran and serial entrepreneur, I had plans and strategies for just about everything, except…. STRESS. Yep, you best believe that all these mega changes were exciting but each transition brought it’s own set of challenges and stress.
But here I am at the end of the year and happily awaiting 2015 with renewed vigor. Why am I so freaking excited after such a stressful year? Because I uncovered some great tools for managing my stress this year. I hope you enjoy this video, meanwhile check out the 5 tips below.
