Is there anything that you can do now or in the immediate future to address a stressor in your life? Is there one step you can take?

Maybe your first step is to make an appointment with a career counselor, a relationship counselor, or a financial planner.

Since you probably don’t have these people on speed dial, perhaps your first step is to reach out to a friend or family member who can help you with a name or contact.

You can also perform an internet search to get started. Remember, your PowerME team is a ready resource as well.

It’s important not to overthink things. That leads to procrastination. Choose one thing from your list and take your first step. The plan will evolve—that’s fine.

The amazing thing is that when you take that one small step, you can almost feel the stress wash out of you.
