My first main stress management strategy is to find communities where you can hang out for support, and then make sure that you actually spend time in them. This might take a little searching to find the right group of people; if you find yourself feeling more stressed by being around certain people, then leave that community and go to a different one. Your people are out there.

With all that’s going on in our country, in our economy, in the world, and on social media, it feels like so many of us are under a great deal of stress. We know that chronic stress can be as unhealthy as smoking a quarter of a pack a day. For many of us, our work, our livelihood, is a particular cause of stress. Of course, a bit of stress is just fine, but what are stress management strategies that leaders use to become “Stress-Proof” at work? What are some great tweaks, hacks, and tips that help to reduce or even eliminate stress from work? As a part of this series, I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Sarah Guilliot.

Sarah Guilliot is a Coach & Copywriter with 20 years of experience in Web/UX Design, Copywriting, and Positioning. She’s created sales pages, site architecture, and advertising campaigns for Fortune 500 and tech companies such as Microsoft, GoDaddy, and T-Mobile. Sarah currently runs an agency at where she creates client-attracting websites and marketing for Business Coaches and Service Providers with her no-stress copywriting and coaching services.

Thank you so much for joining us in this interview series! Before we dive in, our readers would love to know how you got from “there to here.” Inspire us with your backstory!

There were a few ideas in mind from an early age of what I could be “when I grew up.” I imagined having an office job where I was working and being creative all day because I had a mental picture from my childhood of that Dolly Parton movie, “9 to 5”, you know the one? I laugh now thinking about it but I really had this vision of working in an office, presenting the latest advertising ideas to a team of executives. I had also dreamed about being a therapist since I had a knack for being a great listener and support to my friends. There seemed like so many exciting career paths leading in very different directions, but then one day it clicked: I was studying art and working on my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree when one day I tried Photoshop for the first time. Photoshop was just barely on the market, not even owned by Adobe yet, and the first day that I tried it, I thought, “this is so much fun; THIS is what I want to do for a living.”

That’s the moment I decided to pursue my design career, which was a decision that led to 20 years in corporate design roles. That era for me consisted of a lot of contract jobs, moving from one year-long contract to another instead of staying with one company as a permanent full-time employee. That was a really organic and natural progression of figuring out what I wanted to do with my career.

Throughout that time, I learned that design isn’t even really one specific career path, but in reality, it’s a series of endless roads leading from the discipline. Being in the Seattle area, I was lucky enough to work with Amazon, Eddie Bauer, Microsoft, T Mobile, GoDaddy, to name a few, and I got to have a taste of how things worked in each of those companies.

It was a great path for me at the time, so for two decades (am I really that old?!) I worked my way up from designing Yellow Pages ads for print, to becoming a UX Architect online. At GoDaddy, I was working on homepage designs that would be seen by millions of people across the entire world. The feeling was incredible.

It was really an honor and a privilege to go through that experience, yet at the same time, it really wasn’t fulfilling to me. I started to feel trapped, so I broke out on my own and started my own business, which has gone through many pivots since then. It’s kind of funny to look back on, because in my early days as a child when I was picturing my career, I thought I might be an ad exec or a writer or a therapist (even though those career paths didn’t emerge), and I ended up doing none of those specific things, yet all of those traits are still with me now.

I pull those qualities into my services every day as I help my clients with the feelings that go along with launching new products out into the world or creating a new website or a new brand. I pull in my artistic sensibilities and writing abilities and communication skills to help them articulate their messaging. It’s just very interesting looking back and seeing this trajectory, across what seems like disparate spaces. It was still me throughout all of that time, with those same skills, just applied in different ways.

Now I own my own business providing copywriting and messaging services and coaching. I primarily help coaches and course creators who want to start an online course, a membership, or a group program online and I help them launch. That’s where this path has led; still pulling on all of those skills of the writer, the designer, the therapist, with all of my clients.

What lessons would you share with yourself if you had the opportunity to meet your younger self?

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. I spent a big portion of my life being worried that if I asked something I would look stupid. That voice in the back of my head said “everyone in the room already knows the answer; don’t ask that.” But I learned somewhere along the way: A, you need to ask questions in order to do a better job, and B, what actually happens when you ask questions is you look smarter!

If you’re in a conference room where somebody is presenting and they ask if anybody has any questions and you raise your hand and ask away, they love it. They get to talk more about the thing that they’re trying to share. Plus it helps everyone around you because they’re also more engaged, and you might be asking questions that they had as well. As a result, people are really, really happy to have you in the room and they actually seek you out to be involved in all future projects.

When you ask questions, people get into deeper discussions and better things are created, so you actually are more respected. You look smarter, and people want to work with you more. And even more importantly, you understand the projects much better so you’re able to create incredible results that weren’t possible if you only understood at a surface level. I would tell my younger self to ask away!

None of us are able to experience success without support along the way. Is there a particular person for whom you are grateful because of the support they gave you to grow you from “there to here?” Can you share that story and why you are grateful for them?

I have two important people to thank. First, I’m grateful to my husband, who supported me through all of the leaps of faith. Of course partners are supposed to support each other through all of those big career shifts, but it takes a really special person to say yes when you want to quit your career of 20 years to pursue your own business. I was bringing in half the household income and we temporarily shifted to living off of our stocks while I was figuring out this whole business thing, all because I want to be more fulfilled. My husband always believed that it was important even though it meant a sacrifice for us both. My venture to find fulfillment has changed our lives in so many ways, and it hasn’t always been smooth or easy. I have him to thank the most for his support on this journey.

That support at home has been incredible, and I’ve also been really lucky to have support from my professional network. Being a person who changed job contracts frequently, I was often the new person in the room and had to create relationships from scratch over and over again. During this process, I learned that at every job, there are people who are warm, generous with their knowledge, eager to share and keen to lift others up. It was always my mission to find those people in every room, and the resulting relationships have been incredible.

From friends in corporate life to new friends and community members in the business world, I’ve learned so much from the people in my circle. Even the people who I don’t know directly, like the podcasters and YouTubers who I’ve been learning from for years, feel like important figures in my journey. I think that everyone who becomes an entrepreneur starts learning from Pat Flynn and Amy Porterfield and is guided so much by the content that they share, even though we don’t know them personally. I’m incredibly grateful to them for sharing their knowledge freely for me to listen to and be inspired by for so many years on my commute. The free content only truly helped me make the switch to go out on my own.

Along the way, there have also been tangible investments in my support system; people that I paid to help me. For example, my friend and coach Jessica Rodriguez, from Freedom Driven Success, has helped me through many big decisions. She coached me while I was in my corporate job where I was a UX architect at GoDaddy through the transition when I left that job and went out on my own. I’ve coached with her several times over the years, and we still remain friends. She’s given me so much support, and she’s even created her own community of people where I’ve made many friends and been so grateful to provide and receive support.

There are supporters everywhere you look; you just have to reach out, find them and ask questions, even though it feels vulnerable. When you ask questions, you find that support system that you need. I’m so grateful to everyone in my life over the years who have been that open, sharing person that just wants to lift up the people around them instead of sitting in a place of fear, as if they need to hold everyone back because they’re threatened by you.

Are you working on any exciting new projects now? How do you think it might help people?

My main project is my coaching and copywriting business, where I write sales pages, email sequences, social media posts and copywriting for people to launch their online course membership, group programs or events. I’m currently working on some ideas to create a template shop for people who just want a leg up, as if I’m personally helping them write their sales page, but at a lower price point. They’ll be able to grab a sales page template to start from with a lot of that guidance built in. There are so many questions that go into a sales page, like what order should things be in, where should the imagery go, does it look good on mobile, is the user experience in line. I hope that I can remove stress from the process and add excitement to the process for people.

I just want to continue helping and supporting in any way I can, and the template shop is the newest iteration of that. I’m also sharing a lot on YouTube and Instagram, for those course creators and coaches who are trying to do good in the world. My clients tend to have business owners as their clients, who are also probably helping more and more people around them. So it’s really exciting to support my clients, knowing that that’s going to help them create a bigger impact in the world, too. It creates so much positivity that ripples out into the community, and that’s what excites me most about every new project.

Ok, thank you for sharing your inspired life. Let’s now talk about stress. How would you define stress?

I would define stress as an ever present challenge for everyone. It’s absolutely a presence that’s everywhere in our lives. It affects you physically and mentally. The science behind stress is not my area of expertise so I might not explain this perfectly, but if we talk about putting stress on an object, it’s usually about pressure. You’re putting this pressure or weight on something and pushing and pushing it until it gets to its breaking point.

It’s easy to go too far and break it. I see stress in people as being the same as that pressure. The thing that’s pushing and creating the weight on you could be anything. In work, it could be the pressure to create something that makes money or to impress the people around you, or maybe to rise up the ranks in your job. It could be stress around earning enough to support your family or making sure your children are doing okay. Sometimes it’s the stress of surviving when things are uncertain, like during the pandemic.

To me, stress is an invisible thing, but it carries all the weight of the world. It’s so heavy, and if you’re not careful, it will push you to your breaking point. You have to keep an eye on stress because it can and absolutely will destroy you if you’re not careful.

In the Western world, humans typically have their shelter, food, and survival needs met. So what has led to this chronic stress? Why are so many of us always stressed out?

I think that for a long time, many people’s shelter, food and survival needs WERE met, but that changed for some people during the pandemic. Many people had their shelter, food and survival threatened during that time. So to start, I just want to acknowledge that there is definitely stress around that, and safety and basic security are not a given. But it’s a great question, to examine what has led to societal chronic stress.

It doesn’t account for all stress contributors, but I think the world moves very fast, and it’s speeding up actively every day. We have so much information flying past us, and we get this feeling of needing to keep up. So we go faster, we aren’t patient, we think things should happen at lightning speed. Sometimes we create unnecessary stress for ourselves because we create these expectations that big things have to happen quickly. I think it’s related to the bombardment of lightning-fast information on social media and from the news.

Nothing we see online really summarizes the years and years of effort or lead-up that goes into a single achievement. After an enormous amount of slogging that people go through, we see a 15-second highlight reel of them collecting their trophy and easily perceive the successes of other people as being achieved overnight, when in reality they spent months, years or decades working on it.

This compounds the stress even more because we have access to this endless waterfall of half-truths 24/7. We can casually bring up Instagram on our phones and in a few seconds see 50 posts from 50 strangers, and it makes us feel behind.

As a result, big, lofty goals grow from a place of inadequacy. It appears that everyone around us is achieving things quickly and with ease, and we feel like we have to keep up, so we start putting pressure on ourselves to go faster. I think there’s just this incredible speed of society. The access to information and comparison culture has just put us in hyper-mode, where we think everything has to happen right now, and that only the most awesome and impressive results count.

The worst part is that the things that we’re seeing online that we’re now aiming for are largely unachievable, at least in the way that we’re visioning them. So how can we ever feel at peace? It takes a lot of managing our expectations.

What are some of the physical manifestations of being under a lot of stress? How does the human body react to stress?

If you’d have asked me this question 10 years ago I probably would’ve given you some vague answer, but I’ve become much more in tune to what’s happening in my body since becoming an entrepreneur. Starting your own business feels like going to therapy. It’s just you in your head thinking constantly about how things are going. It’s made me much more attuned to changes in my body. That being said, I still don’t always notice something right away and have to register some effects of stress retroactively.

When I’m under stress, my neck and shoulders hurt. I’ve noticed that when I have a big project or I’m working with a challenging client, I’m putting a lot of pressure on the results of some new idea that I have. What ends up happening is spending more time at my computer hunched over my keyboard. For hours on end, I’m not getting up or moving, so my neck and shoulders feel tense and tight and that causes the headaches. Then I get that butterfly feeling in the middle of my chest and in my gut. After a while it starts to affect my digestion.

It also initiates hypersensitivity and causes me to be more emotional around my family. I find myself getting upset about things today that yesterday I would have been much more patient about. If I take a moment to realize I’m under stress, taking stock of my tension and neck pain, then I can stop and do some yoga or some stretches. It’s often hard to give yourself permission to stand up and stretch on the floor when you’re in the middle of a project or deadline, but it’s so necessary.

Is stress necessarily a bad thing? Can stress ever be good for us?

I think it’s easy to find a silver lining in stress, which is the motivation it inspires, but I actually don’t think that’s a genuinely positive spin. I don’t think using stress as a motivator is healthy or even ultimately that productive. I think excitement, which can sometimes feel similar to stress, is the positive force worth focusing on.

Stress should be recognized as something different than excitement. Stress is the stick and excitement is the carrot. Yes, I think if you’re stressed, it can push you to do more things, or even to try different things altogether which can result in positive impacts on your life. But I don’t think it’s worth it to use stress as the stick to panic yourself into productivity.

It’s much more productive to de-stress and find the excitement so that you’re moving toward something positive and amazing in your life. That’s a level of internal work that takes time, but it’s so worth it in the long run.

Is there a difference between being in a short term stressful situation versus an ongoing stress? Are there long term ramifications to living in a constant state of stress?

Absolutely, I think there’s a huge difference between short-term stress and ongoing stress. When I think of short-term stress, I think of going through security at the airport. That’s what I find very stressful, but thankfully it’s a very temporary problem. Long-term stress, on the other hand, can wreck you physically. If you’re in a constant state of stress, then you’ll develop coping mechanisms for dealing with that, which are often negative.

For me, it’s eating. My stress relief is to go get some ice cream or greasy food, and when I find myself doing that often, it starts to make me feel sluggish and tired. It’s definitely poor for my long-term health, and it affects me in real-time by leading to poor sleep. A seemingly innocent coping mechanism, when used too frequently, leads to poor sleep, brain fog and more stress. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. A coping mechanism for someone else might be drinking, or even more dangerous forms of self-medication.

Avoiding unhealthy spirals is really important. Theoretically, you could still push through your period of stress, using your coping mechanisms, and still find some success, but what a self-destructive way to do it. I think if you’re constantly under stress, it’s going to shorten your lifespan, honestly, because of all of the physical ramifications, and it’s just not worth it.

Is it even possible to eliminate stress?

This is a hard question for me because I’m a very anxious person naturally. The idea that I could eliminate stress from my life completely feels far-fetched and imaginary.

Just recently, I was watching a YouTube video from Cecilia Blomdahl, a gal who lives in Svalbard, which is a Norwegian town that’s famous for being one of the farthest inhabited locations up north.

She mentioned how she had started to develop anxiety and she had never had it before, and this was such a shocking statement to me. I didn’t know that people lived in the world without anxiety! So I can’t imagine anything else. Maybe if you’re not an anxious person you can eliminate stress from your life, but I don’t feel like it’s possible for me personally.

However, I think you can release yourself from stress for periods of time, and you should at every opportunity and actively work at restoring balance. I think of it like this: there’s a horizon line for each of us, and stress is this pressure coming down and it’s pushing you lower below the horizon line. If you never eliminate stress, then you never go back up again.

But if you spend some time de-stressing, it takes you back up above the horizon line into the happy area out of the negative sad space that’s down below. At least for a moment, you’re a little higher. Then maybe the next time stress comes, it doesn’t push you as far down. I think you can eliminate stress for small periods this way. Maybe you can make those periods last longer and longer, and ultimately you should aim for that.

In your opinion, is this something that we should be raising more awareness about, or is it a relatively small issue? Please explain what you mean.

I think we should absolutely be raising more awareness about the effects of stress. It seems like there’s already a good deal of awareness, but we haven’t yet reached the finish line, wherever that is. Stress is a huge issue on the individual level, but I think it’s also creating conflict within our communities.

People aren’t as patient with listening to other people’s opinions or understanding that there are other sides to whatever argument they’re making. I think when people are less stressed, they’re kinder and gentler with each other. That’s just a better world to live in. Reducing stress across the board should be something that each of us tries to make an impact on.

Let’s talk about stress at work. Numerous studies show that job stress is the major source of stress for American adults and that it has escalated progressively over the past few decades. For you personally, if you are feeling that overall, work is going well, do you feel calm and peaceful, or is there always an underlying feeling of stress? Can you explain what you mean?

For me personally, being someone who suffers from anxiety, there’s, there’s almost always a feeling of stress under the surface. There are the present-moment stressors, but in addition, I’m also worried in advance about a long list of things that might happen. This creates a scenario where even if work is going well, I’ll feel amazing for a minute, and then start to worry about all of the positive things going away, which pulls me back down. Embracing the good times is something I’m actively working on. As an exercise, I try to spend time with the celebrations and the good feelings and not immediately skip to disaster prevention.

When it comes to stress on the job, there’s always going to be some level of pressure because you have expectations and need to achieve a certain outcome. If you can release yourself from how things turn out, I think stress melts away. For example, take someone who’s launching a new course. If they can get to a place where they’re okay if nobody buys because they’ve created something they’re proud of, then that’s a relatively stress-free paradigm. That comes from loving the process of creating it and feeling proud of the end product, regardless of external validation.

If that’s your attitude, then you can feel much calmer, more peaceful and less stressed. However, that only works if your needs are met and you’re not reliant on making a certain amount of money to put food on the table. You’re not able to release expectations of how it turns out if you’re depending on this to feed your family. The ideal scenario is to work from a belief that every new thing could catapult you forward into something so amazing, but simultaneously release expectations of how things are going to turn out. It’s a balancing act that takes a lot of internal work.

Okay, fantastic. Here is the main question of our interview: Can you share with our readers your “5 stress management strategies that busy leaders can use to become “Stress-Proof” at Work?” Please share a story or example for each.

My first main stress management strategy is to find communities where you can hang out for support, and then make sure that you actually spend time in them. This might take a little searching to find the right group of people; if you find yourself feeling more stressed by being around certain people, then leave that community and go to a different one. Your people are out there.

Everyone needs to find a community that helps them actively feel better. And when I’m talking about communities, I’m not referring to local groups in real life. The majority of your opportunities are found within online communities. It can be as simple as joining Facebook groups for people in your profession, or finding organized memberships or online courses that come with community elements. It’s invaluable to go and find groups of people that share your interests or are trying to do the same things you do or that you enjoy. Then, spend time there!

It’ll help you feel less alone. It will become a safe place to go to be vulnerable. For me, community has meant joining some free Facebook groups and then joining some paid groups as well, which usually came from purchasing a course or hiring a coach and that had a group component to what they were selling. These groups have become places to learn and ask deeper questions, but also to meet other people that are in the same boat as me. We’re all trying to achieve the same things, so we can all help one another. I find that even though I don’t have coworkers, I don’t ever feel lonely because I have so many communities available to me where I’ve started to build friendships.

Strategy number two is to eat more plants. Currently, I’m on a whole food, plant-based food journey where I’m trying to move away from eating animal-based products because I’ve learned about the benefits and potential disease prevention. The benefits are personal to me because the negative effects of eating meat are related to the health conditions that have historically been the things that people in my family died from. Plus, it’s just better for the world.

To my surprise, this type of eating also costs less than eating animal-based products. Eating more plants brings a lot of positivity into my life in terms of finances and feeling good about the world, plus it makes me feel more energized. The food doesn’t weigh me down or make me feel tired, and it’s very batchable, which creates days for me with fewer decisions to make.

Right now I’ve been batching oatmeal muffins that check so many stress-relief boxes for me: I enjoy eating them, they’re nutrient-dense, a big batch lasts for a while, then I don’t have to think about what I’ll eat for breakfast in the morning, plus the cherry on top: I feel better afterward than if I were to reach for an impulsive breakfast option. As a result, I’m able to get to work faster and with a clearer brain than if I had to spend a lot of time deciding on breakfast beforehand. It’s a win in so many ways.

The third stress-relief strategy is to try to do more yoga, or even stretching for that matter. If getting on the floor and doing yoga is not something that you’re able to do, just stretching alone can still make you feel amazing.

This is something I’ve tried to build a routine around, even though I’m not naturally a very routine-oriented person. There’s a YouTube channel called Sleep Tube, which has these beautiful, relaxing scenes and these very soothing and meditative binaural beats. I get on the floor with my kids and we do yoga and stretches together. It’s a great way to put a cap on the end of my day. It feels wonderful, especially after being hunched over a keyboard all day, but it’s also a really special time with my kids. Even if I didn’t have kids, I would still do this and enjoy it as a meditative moment for myself.

For a moment, you can think about your stretch and not about the things that have caused you stress throughout the day. It really helps your body recover from whatever you’ve been dealing with in the day, and it’s a way for you to also signal that you’re done working. It’s such a nice transition from that busy working day into the evening.

My fourth strategy is to get this app on your phone: Voxer. On its website, it’s described as a walkie-talkie app, but it’s basically an application that makes it easier for you to chat with friends. You can send text messages, voice messages up to 15 minutes long, videos, pictures and animated GIFs. You could technically do all that probably through text messaging, but something about Voxer makes it way more fun.

It sets you up for keeping in touch with other people with ease. Since I discovered Voxer, I’ve used it with coaches I’ve hired, with clients that I’ve coached so that we can send each other a quick message and then the other person can answer later. Because it’s asynchronous, you could be listening at the same time somebody’s leaving you a message, but it kind of releases that pressure of responding right away. It’s sort of built into the form of communication: anyone who uses Voxer knows that the other person might get back to you later. The expectations feel very different from other forms of communication.

Communicating on Voxer, you give others time to think before responding if they want or to let an idea soak in, or if they’re just busy, they can come back to it when they have the time. Something about it is just really great fun. It’s been great for staying in touch, and it’s how I generate a lot of happiness in my life.

It feels like the next level of friendship to move a relationship from Facebook Messenger or scheduled Zoom calls to Voxer. Since you’re not available to everyone on the app, compared to say email, the messages that come through are ones that you’ll genuinely be excited to answer. It’s a stress-free app that’s always with me, helping me to never feel alone.

To always have that sounding board and support system is such a gift, and it’s also so fun because you can talk on the go. There was a trend for a while where people were trying to reduce stress associated with meetings by taking a walk during remote meetings, but with Zoom being the norm now, it’s a lot less convenient, nor is it welcomed by the whole group. Getting on Voxer while you’re walking is really easy and is a great way to stay in touch and reduce stress, which brings me to my fifth strategy: get outside more often.

Feel the fresh air on your face and the sun on your skin. This is so critical to reducing stress in your life. You can even go so far as to take off your shoes and socks and put your feet on the ground. There are even health benefits to this. My friend Stacee Lynn has a cool podcast called the Thrive Sister Thrive podcast where she talks about the benefits of grounding yourself this way.

I usually just walk, and the effects are incredible. For me walking is meditative. The feeling of the breeze on my face, breathing it in, calms my nervous system. I always see wild animals, which feels really special. When I don’t get my daily walk in, I feel genuinely sad. Everyone talks about the benefits of exercise and the endorphins it releases, but just getting outside in any capacity, even a calming stroll, is invaluable.

When you’re feeling stressed, walking and moving can be a really powerful way to get rid of some of that tension in your day. I really encourage you to try it: I think it’ll help you immensely. There’s so much power to just getting out of your house and getting out into the fresh air. It’s incredible and everyone should do more of it.

Do you have any favorite books, podcasts, or resources that have inspired you to live with more joy in life?

There’s a course that I took recently that helped me with examining how to find more joy in my life. It’s by Jessica Eley and is called “Prep Work.” It was really mind-blowing because she helped me get curious about how my brain works. Through the curriculum, I examined what I wanted out of life, thought about how to make decisions and determine my next steps moving forward.

It’s the kind of course that you can just go through again, and again, and again, no matter what stage you’re in, and it will help you make decisions about how to do the things you want to do. The big takeaway for me from the course was learning about this concept of moving towards something you’re excited about, instead of running away from something you’re scared of.

She uses the example of someone running a marathon versus someone running from a bear, which I think is such a brilliant way to frame our excitement or nervousness and try to keep stress in its lane. I also learned from her the idea of releasing those expectations on the outcomes of the thing that you’re doing, and just enjoying the creativity and the creative process; learning to be proud of yourself without requiring that approval from an outside source.

I took the course eight months ago, and I still think about what I learned from her a lot. It’s a resource that I think everyone should check out. It’s hard to explain what it does for you, but if you’re curious about how your brain works, how you make decisions and how to find more joy and happiness in your life, I think it will be really enjoyable for you.

You are a person of great influence. If you could start a movement that would bring the most amount of good to the most amount of people, what would that be? You never know what your idea can trigger. 🙂

I would start a movement toward homeschooling and unschooling. The school system is broken, in my opinion, and trains our children to live lives filled with stress. Homeschooling and unschooling are paths that help kids find the things that they’re interested in and passionate about, so that they can move through life with more excitement and curiosity.

I just don’t think that that’s possible in our school system the way it is now. It would be a movement around helping kids experience less competition, less comparison, less grading against others, and more discovery, curious exploration, and finding the things that they love. When kids love something, they’re interested in it and going to learn everything that they can about it, and they’re going to become the best at it. That creates a really special and happy life.

What is the best way for our readers to continue to follow your work online?

My website is my home base, so head to and you will find all of my content and social links! I often hang out on Instagram as well, which will be linked from my website. I would be so excited if any readers popped over and said hello, and shared how they stress-proof their lives or if any of my suggestions helped them.

This was very inspiring. Thank you so much for the time you spent on this. We wish you only continued success.
