This is My Time

Own Your Moment.

Traffic? 15-minute work break? Steal those minutes back from stress and make them your “me time.” Managing constant stress reduces your chances of heart disease and stroke. Breathe, stretch, or add some steps to turn an “ACK!” moment into an “ahhh” moment. Get ready – it’s time to own your moment.
