We're coming to the end of stress awareness month for 2019. It's important to think ahead for what we can all do to reduce the stress and pressure we put on ourselves at home and at work.

She says that Settle Stories is the happiest place she's ever worked in and aims to make it "a place to get rich in your soul."
