Welcome! I am Mary from mrettig.com, and I am so happy that you are here! The focus of my blog is stress management and how to live a meaningful life. I want to foster hope through support and encouragement.
I am not a therapist, just someone with anxiety and worry. If you are in danger, please call 911. I am offering support through sharing my own story and what works for me. If you have serious problems, I highly suggest you seek a mental health professional.
I am writing for you if you are a women 40 to 60 years old and are overstressed, unhappy, and not living a life you love.
I will help you with more than dealing with high stress. I will help you look at your life and help you decide what you want and don’t want in life.
My blog post, products, and courses are for educational purposes and support only.
I will tell you what has and hasn’t worked for me, but in the end, it is your journey which will be personal and unique to you.
My vision for this blog is to build a community of like-minded women who want to manage stress better. I will write and teach about my system Be CALMER.
Be CALMER stands for
C – Creativity
A – Acceptance
L – Learning new things/knowledge
M – Meditation on God’s word and mindfulness
E – Ending emotional mind and living in wise mind
R – Relaxation and stress relief skills
