Stress in the workplace often affects more than just productivity. The stress often boils over into other aspects of life. In the childcare industry, Caroline & Justina believe that that stress is very different from other industries. Being an owner/administrator in childcare can often be very lonely, and the stress overwhelming. Listen in as they share their personal and vulnerable stories of stress & their mental health as it relates to childcare. Although, not medical professionals, they are childcare experts and are able to offer some tips and tricks they used and believe they help to try and combat that stress and strain on the mental wellbeing of those in the industry.

Having the conversation about mental wellness and stress is important. Too many people are afraid to have the conversation. Caroline & Justina want to be a part of breaking the stigma and talking about mental wellness and stress. They believe that sharing their own personal stories and struggles will allow others to have the conversation with someone too.

Child care is one of the few industries where you can feel all the emotions in one day, so taking the time to recognize it, feel it and work through it is important.
