Doctor For The House

On a recent Sunday Radio show,  All About Real Estate, the topic was stress.

A  listener going through a stressful move sent me a text and suggested  I talk about the stress on relationships for couples and families during this time.

She went on to ask if I would consider inviting a licensed counselor to discuss tips and tricks to save your sanity and that of those who love you.

And she suggested some couple maintenance tips like having a date night or an overnight escape. Put yourself on the calendar. Make some time to see each other again and enjoy a good night's sleep. 

 

During this time, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Harry Legum, a psychology professor, and a professional counselor. What timing! 

Dr. Legum graciously agreed to be my guest this week and give suggestions on handling the emotions of moving, including but not limited to anxiety, anger, stress, grief, trauma, and isolation during these life transitions. 

So listen to the show Sunday, May 29th, and let's see what we can learn.

If you have a question about moving or selling a home

Call Margaret Rome.

As Grant Schneider confirmed, having balance - a date night for example - is essential regardless of one's profession. Also learning what one can control and letting go of what one can't control such as inflation, inventory shortage, etc., helps to reduce a lot of stress.

Since my first day as a Realtor in 1981, it has been stressed that buying and selling real estate ranks among the top 10 stressors, folks can endure.  It's important to know skills to help alleviate that stress.  And, it's especially important to have an experienced knowledgeable agent to help guide you through the process.

Grant Schneider Lee and I always did date night. We had a standing weekly sitter when our daughter was young.

Myrl Jeffcoat,  We all have been aware about this process's stress. Is there ever a week that goes by that we don't have to help our buyers and sellers to alleviate this stressful time?

No doubt today's show will be an interesting one.

Knowing what to do and doing it may often be at opposite ends of the spectrum.  

All the best to you, Miss Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400

Margaret this should have been a excellent radio show today.  Moving can be very stressful for all the members of a family including pets.

Hi Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400, what a great topic. Taking care of ourselves physically and mentally should be put above everything else.
