Stress often occurs when we feel as if we have no control over a situation. Commonly, this stress stems from having too many tasks on your plate to properly prioritize how to achieve your entire to-do list. Working on multiple projects and focusing on more than one area of your career can quickly build up and cause stress, anxiety and other mental issues. Over the years, I have developed successful methods to help myself cope with the stress of being a busy CEO.
This is a method that you will find in almost every stress advice guide, and for good reason. Each morning I wake up and take 20 minutes to prepare for my day and meditate. The practices behind meditation, proper breathing and mindfulness, can be applied to my daily routine. When I am facing a busy and stressful day, I focus on staying calm and controlling my breathing. Exacerbating the circumstances and stressing overall I must do only makes me feel more out of control. In addition to breathing techniques that I practice in the morning and throughout my day, I also emphasize concentrating on the task at hand. Rather than working on one project while worrying about the next, I have learned how to direct my energy and complete what needs to be done so I can move on to the next task, quickly and productively.
Know When to Take a Step Back and Say ‘No’
The hard-working professional is often a positive connotation, which is why so many individuals take on more than they can handle. Being busy is usually associated with being successful, but when busy causes wear and tear on your mental well-being, it may be time to say no to the next project. A large cause of stress comes from being overworked. Look at the projects you are working on, are they helping you reach your goals? Are there other options that may help you succeed without added stress? Prioritizing your tasks to know what is most important, what can wait a week and what is excessive and unneeded will help you lighten your workload and your stress. It is okay to say no when you need, but don’t make a habit of turning down projects that are going to make you a better professional and help your career.
Okay, okay, so we have all heard how time management is key to decreasing stress. How do you manage your time and schedule without becoming a robot following the motions, though? At the beginning of every week, I look at what I need to get done for the week, workwise, personally and socially. I break these down into a daily schedule and prioritize my deadlines. A good balance of these different aspects of your life will allow you freedom, yet organization, while lowering your stress. Some weeks, this may include cancelling dinner plans with a friend to make time to spend alone and destress from an extremely busy week. Knowing where your priorities lie often includes knowing your short-term and long-term goals. How are you going to reach these goals? What activities need to be put at the top of your to-do list to ensure you are taking the steps you need? Rather than take each day as it comes, make a plan, be flexible and remember what your priorities are.

A Glimpse in the Story of Lynn A. Dalton, The Fiction World’s Magical Author
The world is huge and has a diversity of people. At this point, there are 7.8 billion people in the world, and each person has a unique quality that distinguishes them from other people. This quality makes them shine brighter and is the reason why they get recognized in the world.
While some people are exceptionally good at teaching, others are known for being brilliant leaders, some people are good with technology, some are recognized for their ability to listen to other people, while a part of this population is known for creating a whole new world by joining words together.
Like everything else, putting words together to narrate a story is an innate trait. And because of that, the world is blessed to have so many esteemed authors who give their readers the possibility of venturing outside the real world and into a fictional realm.
Today, an author who stands distinguished in the urban fantasy genre is Lynn A. Dalton. Dalton is not just any writer; she is a devoted and passionate writer who is known for her exceptional storytelling skills, which are reflected through her uniquely crafted books!
A PEEK IN THE PAST
Lynn A. Dalton was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts in the United States. Growing up, the author was fond of reading and would spend prolonged hours reading books, especially by Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and Iris Johansen. Her favorite books were Iris Johansen’s series about Eve, the forensic sculptor. Cherishing every moment, she spent reading, Lynn was often found lost in her own fantasy world.
With a major portion of time being given to reading, Lynn’s imagination grew vividly, and her crafting skills were strengthened, encouraging her to start writing stories of her own and that she did! By age ten, the author had already begun writing stories, surrounding herself with friends with the same interests. Throughout school, the author spent hours with her friends enthusiastically giving ideas and creating stories together. Even when they were not together, the friend circle used to exchange stories through the mail!
Lynn’s love for writing was not just limited to the few people she knew, she loved sharing what she created with others as well. The girl loved putting a smile on people’s faces and watched as people’s faces lit up after listening to her stories. The passion started blooming, especially during her time at the Girl Scouts’ campfires, where nights were spent making smores and sharing stories. It wasn’t a surprise that a keen head would turn to Lynn since her young mind always had a magical story to share, and that too, was on the spot!
Bidding farewell to high school, Lynn was determined that instead of putting her skills aside, she would polish and perfect her writing. Even though she didn’t start a career in writing, she induced her love for storytelling in her professional life.
The author began working at the Winchester Memorial Hospital, where she would have to interact with patients regularly. To make them feel better, the author would offer them a listening ear and then narrate her own fictional stories as well, creating a special bond with every patient she knew.
She got her MBA in Acquisition and Contract Management from the American Graduate University in Covina, California, and completed her Bachelor of University Studies from Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
Later, the author became the Public Affairs Officer at the rank of Captain in the Civil Air Patrol. She worked for the federal government for a period of 34 years where the use of her writing skills were required, and Lynn was happy to do so. Making up stories was something that she was always good at, and she created comical poems covering the working career of retiring Air Force personnel.
A LOOK AT THE PRESENT
A mother of two sons, David Angelo and Michael Thomas, the author found the same love of fiction in her children. Dragons, sorcerers, witches, and magic was what the children enjoyed reading, and the author enjoyed telling them stories about urban fantasies. The author was encouraged to write and pursue it as a career by her children.
Sadly, the author lost her youngest son, David, in the hands of fate when he was just 24. Shattered by the tragic incident, the author wanted to keep her son’s wishes alive, and she was ready to step into the writing industry.

Upon the writing of the first book of the Dragons, Kings, and the Blazing Slicklizzard Heart Trees quadrilogy, the author received an overwhelming response.
