JILL IS AN OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST THAT WORKS AT HEALTH SOUTH.  NEED TO BE CAREFUL OF ENERGY VAMPIRES THAT WILL DESTROY CELLS RATHER THAN BUILDING THEM UP.  FACTORS ARE: ENVIRONMENT- HAPPY PLACES, DOWNER LOCATION AND PEOPLE- SOME BUILD, OTHERS DRAIN.  MENTAL- NEED TO BE HERE IN THE MOMENT, NOT DWELLING ON THE PAST OR THE FUTURE.  SPENDING TOO MUCH TIME THINKING ABOUT SOMETHING WILL DRAIN ENERGY.  LIVE LIFE FOR YOU.  HOW YOU REACT TO STRESS WILL EFFECT YOUR ENERGY AND HEALTH.  NEED TO FIND YOUR PERSONAL SWEET SPOT AND BE THERE.
