Stress is not a dirty word! Though we have come to think of stress as a negative in our lives, stress is not inherently negative. We need stress in our lives to stay active, motivated, challenged, and excited. If we never had any stress, life would be quite boring and uneventful. We also wouldn’t get much done or enjoy fun and adventure.

So when Christine Hassler approached us about bringing a retreat to Miraval that focuses on the millennial generation to help them stop obsessing about having “it all figured out” and live in the present moment while giving them tools to take proactive steps toward their goal, we thought it was a perfect fit. The reality of it is, in no point in your life will you have everything figured out, you’re not supposed to!
