RN ADVICE: The Christmas To Do List

December 15, 2015 by


I am betting that every one of us has a list that is much longer than the list in the picture and we are experiencing a lot of stress over that list.  I know in the past, my lists were very detailed. I put a lot of pressure on myself for the holidays to be […]

The Rabbit Hole

November 24, 2015 by


Even coaches succumb to the sugar addiction cycle.  While I would like to think I could resist or had measures in place to prevent going into this cycle, I am just like each and every one of you.  I sometimes fall into it and have to work my way out of the rabbit hole.  For […]
