We all have our breaking points. Some are minor collapses, brought on by the stressors of the day piling up while our monkey minds run around screeching. Others are near-fatal collapses triggered by loss or change. Although these breaking points differ in scale and recovery time, the tips below can help you begin to plaster the break and rebuild.

How do you recover from your breaking points? Do you see them as rock or water?
