How To Better Manage Stress | Mental Health Monday Show | August 24, 2020

"If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles." -- Doug Larson

I remember in fall of 2019 sitting in a seminar, listening to how I should make 2020 my year, and the 2020's my decade.  I was told that I shouldn't let another year or another decade slip through my fingers without making my mark on life.

And then BANG.. Covid-19 hit and the ensuing shut down.  

Boy, the media ran with pandemic sensationalism non-stop ever since.

As if we needed THAT stress on top of everything else we have to deal with in our lives, on a day-to-day and week-to-week basis.

Did you know that stress-related illnesses, according to the World Health Organization, cost the global economy ONE TRILLION dollars ($1,000,000,000,000.00) every year?  Think about it.. that is HALF the value of Apple LOST to stress-related illnesses, every year!

In this week's show, I talk about the signs and symptoms of stress, and some suggestions on how to better manage stress in your life.

Below is this week's Mental Health Monday Show.
