Being Thankful For Our Loved Ones

Wow, what a week it has been all across the country! I want to stop and take a look in my life for all those I love. Often tragedy can bring out a lot of emotions. Feeling sadness, overwhelmed and shock are all common. It may help to talk to others and share your thoughts and feelings. And today, tell them how much they mean to you!

Spring time is here!

As the weather changes here in Chicago it is a great opportunity to get outdoors and reconnect with neighbors. Social connections can rejuvenate us. So can a bright sunny day! Make time today to take a walk, look at the scenery and take in the fresh air. Say hi to new people and stop to chat with old friends. Taking care of yourself is a key step to coping with stress.
