Before you dive into my blog, I would honestly love to continue this budding relationship! Join my VIP newsletter today, so we stay in touch!


I had an EKG the other night.

It had been a couple days of just "not feeling right". This led me to WebMD (never, never, never go on that website), which then had me starting to worry that I was having a heart attack, which then you stress out about because I am only 39! I'm not old enough to have a heart attack.

So then every little twitch, ache or pain becomes amplified, because of course you are dying now, right?

I mean I had ALL the symptoms....shoulder pain (probably because of the hours I have spent in front of the computer), chest heaviness (I might have been wrong about that), fatigue (that could have been because I was not drinking as much coffee), chills (because, well, Alaska), the list goes on.

I just new I was having a heart attack (at the bottom of this blog post I do list symptoms to be aware of). So I made my husband take me to Urgent Care -- because there was NO WAY I was paying the bill for going to the Emergency Room.

So leaving 3 wide eyed kids at home, who all looked slightly panicked, we went in. Of course, by the time we got there I felt normal again. But, its always better to be on the safe side. 

Lab work and an EKG later, I was given the all clear and sent home with instructions to get a massage and not work so much (I started laughing at this one, I mean, I am opening a store!) But, I did learn a valuable lesson!

  1. Take time for you. Although we tell ourselves to not stress about the small things, we still do. We have to ask ourselves, in the grand scheme of things what is important and what isn't?
  2. Taking care of yourself goes beyond eating. I mean I could limit my coffee intake (dare I even say that!), but it is also about your mental and spiritual health also. 
  3. If you don't think everything is okay, if something feels off to you, get it checkout out. Always better to be safe than sorry, and can help your peace of mind also!

Ok, be healthy!
