Happy Monday

How to cope with stress as it relates to the upcoming election.

This election season has been one of the most stress-inducing times in many of our lives. And that's saying something. I mean, 2020 has really thrown a lot at us and this is just one of those things.

Anyway, as you have probably noticed we do our best to stay out of the political arena. This is no different. I just want to make sure that everyone is doing their best to cope with the stress that goes along with the season. Below, are a few tips that can help you deal with "Election Stress". Remember, some of the big ones are physical activity and social connection so, GET TO CLASS! 🙂 (online or in-person)!

  • Family Training

I will be there but, this is not scheduled class time. So I will be busy doing other things. If you have quick questions I will be happy to answer but, if you would like a private lesson that will need to be scheduled ahead of time.
Please call message me ahead to make sure there is space.

These new classes will have In-person and Live streaming options, so no one will miss out!

We will see how this goes and if these options are well received we will continue to add more options.
