January month end progress report

It’s Monday morning and it’s hard to believe that it’s January 31st already. Although not really. This month seemed to really take a long time to end. January was up down for many reasons.

Anxiety – how anxiety can affect your health

The subject on my mind today is anxiety and how it can affect our overall health – physical and mental health. I went to bed last night after my “Ancient Wisdom” post and felt pretty good. But this morning I woke up feeling this tightness in the bottom of my stomach – I knew the…
