Don’t Do This!


I think we all know it’s a killer. Stress contributes to onset of disease and is the quickest way to your grave! Yes, we all get stressed out from time to time. Overload of work, family, money, personal issues and whatever else you want to add that stresses you out!

Listen, here’s the real deal. A message to all you wonderful and beautiful people out there…… something I think you may already know but need to be reminded that……

Stress will age you faster then you would like (Scary look on your face, wide eyed with an inhale gasp jaw dropping “Omg” moment is right now)!

Yup! Keep this in mind people, keep this in mind if nothing else. I don’t think anyone wants to age quicker then normal. I’ve said it before, age is inevitable but you don’t have to rush it!  So here is what you do when you find that you’re having a moment…. You find a place to just “chill”. Take your “time out” and meditate, workout, take a walk, get a pedicure…. whatever it takes to bring you back to your “zen”, your calm state and clarity. Make choices that reduce the stress in your life. We will always encounter some sort of stress along the way, the key is how to manage it. Know the signs of stress, get to the root cause, find a solution, learn to keep it at bay with your own little plan of action… whatever that may be. A five min cat nap could make a difference to you. You will learn what it takes to manage your stress when you want to. Hopefully, it’s not to late when you do decide.

“Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down”. Natalie Goldberg

Live, love, honor and laugh out loud! Prioritize you.

About Cassandra Pavolic

As a retired performer for 25 years transitioning careers has been difficult. I truly enjoyed my career as an aerialist performer. I was fortunate enough to see the world, traveled many places and met people from all cultures. I learned a tremendous amount about life and people during my years traveling than I would in a school setting. The one thing I took away from being on the road is that no matter what ethnic background you are, we are all so similar. A smile is a smile in every language (happiness or contentment). Expressions of all emotions have the same meaning around the world. For this reason we are similar, and I somehow find that comforting. I'm now 50! It's hard to believe I'm fifty already! I reflect on my accomplishments as well as my failures up to date. Both are irrelevant to what I value most. I value people and relationships. I value my deity, it is the number one thing that keeps me stable. Being true to myself is a portion of my "food" in regards to my decision making. When I steer away from being my true self I am disappointed. Exercise, taking walks, and being still are another source of "food" in my life. I like to be still, listen and observe all things. I have been this type of person since a young child. Perhaps one of the reasons why I take an interest in Personality Psychology and my recent studies human behavior. I hold an Associates degree in Music/Theater/Dance from Dean College in MA. I quickly realized I wanted to perform, therefore my journey began immediately after graduating from Dean. I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist, as well as a Certified Personal Trainer. I am curious, I am persistent and I am passionate. I'm on a mission to be a better person, to help those who want to help themselves, and to share my thoughts, opinions, experiences to anyone who gives a damn. All in hoping that what I have to offer will change lives as you learn to keep your priorities in order. And so I started prioritize you.
