Jul 22, 2020

“Whatever your feelings, I do know one thing for sure – we have to stay mindful in this madness. That is a must. If we don’t take care of ourselves and put on our own “oxygen masks,” we cannot put on someone else’s.” -Erin Diehl

Host Erin Diehl reminisces on the roller coaster ride that is 2020. In this episode, she provides three tangible tips on how to be mindful during this crazy year. Listening to this is a must to help gain some control in your life, especially if you’re in the low part of the ride. Remember, we fall only to rise up again!
