Stress stinks. Really. A lot. It skews our thinking and distracts us from what really matters. And the fact is, while being different is part of being amazing, it’s also tough. So is having a parenting or teaching experience other than the one you expected. Or see others sailing through. So, for most of us, being stressed is not only normal, it’s something we feel guilty for feeling (let alone admitting). And if we do pipe up, other folks just don’t get it. “Oh, don’t worry about it” we’re told, or “It’ll all be fine” or “Don’t make such a big deal about it. Stop complaining.” You know who those replies help? No one. Well, except maybe the people who are trying to hush you up without helping you out. So here’s an answer you WILL want to hear: You don’t need pat answers or wishy-washy placations. You need solutions that make sense — and work. You need tools, respect, and understanding. Now. And we can do that. We proudly present AK StressBusters: not-your-average kits, videos, downloads, and insights for an anything-but-average (seriously awesome) you.
