Before I learned how to effectively cope with stress, my life was like the movie Speed.
I was an overworked and overscheduled sales and marketing professional. I was going too fast, and I was out of control-- an accident waiting to happen. I was quite successful from the outside, but I was disconnected from myself and unhappy on the inside. I realized it was up to me to do something about it before I crashed and burned.
I started a journey to improve my well-being, and reducing stress was at the heart of it.
