The way you use your time is the way you live your life.
Are you in Sandy’s path? Do you feel ready for what this Halloween may deliver to your doorstep?
Here are 3 Timely Tips to help you get through!
First and foremost, take a deep breath and DON’T PANIC. Whenever a potential crisis looms, you need to be able to focus the power of your mind on what needs to be done. Panic just dissipates your energy and leaves you less able to do the necessary things to prepare for what’s to come.
Gather necessary information. In this case, that means checking the weather, of course. But also collect phone numbers of key people like friends/family, police/fire, and who to call if your power goes out. If you maintain this data on your computer (perhaps in the form of a template) be sure to print it out so that you have it handy during the current crisis.

No matter what life brings, you can rest assured that you will get through when you prepare, adjust, and carry on.
