Your breath and your voice are needed

To say that the last few months have been intense is a massive understatement. 

We have been navigating the waves of hundreds of thousands of innocent people being infected with a virus that has changed our day to day lives drastically.

Now we are seeing massive waves of change initiated by another disease: racism and hatred.

This is one that infected the minds of many for hundreds of years, and has weaseled its way into the system that governs us. And like the corona virus it is now causing a massive upheaval, one that is LONG overdue.

Stress, it seems, has become an epidemic, with many of you reporting in our recent survey that you feel stressed out at work more often than you would like. 

But what can you do when you are dealing with long to do lists at home and at work, chronic tension draining your energy and no end in sight?

The mistake many people make is just to push through, drink more coffee, and take "unnecessary things" like exercise and mediation off the list of things to do.

It turns out that continually making this mistake is not only costly to productivity and happiness but can potentially be risky to your health.
