September, 2022
We hope you had a restful Labor Day weekend.
The rainy days of Labor Day provided me the opportunity to stay inside, try some new kitchen creations for my family, visit with my college kids who were home for the weekend, and best of all...the afternoon naps with El Choco!

Whether the weekend proved to be relaxing or taxing, this is your reminder to breathe, right here, right now.

Give yourself 30 seconds to draw 3 or 4 deep breaths and reflect upon your Labor Day weekend and your week so far. What do you love when you are at home? What do you love when you are at work? What might be draining your energy in either place and how can you dial that back?

Read on for some Momentum inspiration and resources that will help.

Onwards and upwards,
April Benetollo, CEO
