Over the past several years, I’ve been researching and trying different things to help manage stress. It’s been lots of trial and error, but I have a huge reason for wanting to minimize my stress levels while still enjoying the excitement and passion I have to do all the things I love in life, including running my businesses.
I got a huge lesson as a young girl when witnessed my dad have a heart attack – he was only 32. I remember it so well – the image is still fresh in my mind.
He went on to live an incredible life, but it was a wake up call for the whole family. We changed what we ate, exercise became much more important than ever and there was a new focus on health.
However, as I got older, busier and had more responsibility, the hardest thing for me to manage was managing the day to day stresses. Being a very driven person who has the propensity to have multiple projects on my plate at a time, it’s often hard to unplug and take some down time.
As I’ve searched for “balance”, I’ve come across a few things that are helpful. One thing that I’ve integrated into my day to day life is meditation. What I love about it, is that I can do it anywhere and anytime. Plus, I’m more effective and efficient in my work!
In this special edition of EmpowermentTV, I interview Shari Czar who shares her secrets to managing stress in a busy life. She has practical, simple, effective tools you can use to de-stress in 16 seconds or less!
What she shares could change – or even save your life.
Unfortunately, my Dad passed away 3 years ago. He lived a full life, rich in doing the things he loved as he drove forward to success in business and life. I miss him every day. He left me with the gift of being a passionate entrepreneur with a drive for excellence.
He also left a lasting impression that we have to take care of ourselves, eat well, exercise, manage our busy lives and take time to de-stress, so we can continue to share our gifts with the world. I’m grateful everyday for everything he brought to my life and the lives of others.
