People shared their successes, not only with friends but with their employers, and in no time she found herself coaching groups.

Dear Mom is a tale told through a young woman’s letters to her mother, sharing the lessons she’s learning in a local stress management class. Janet’s life is typical–busy, sometimes stressful, with limited time for self-care. But slowly she begins to incorporate the practical principles into her days, and calm overcomes chaos. Filled with humor, a bit o’ drama, and keen insights.

This class provides multiple systems that will set you up for success. One simple habit at a time you’ll move toward a healthier you.
