Hey there podcast lovers, we have an awesome episode discussing resources for healthy living and coping with chronic pain. We loved hearing from this week's guest, Krista Ranne, an entrepreneur and single mom who manages her Fibromyalgia with healthy living.

She offered some amazing tips on coping with chronic pain and setting boundaries for those with Fibromyalgia.

One of the key takeaways was the importance of finding the right support- whether that's doctors, therapists, or a community of others who understand what you're going through.

Another great tip we heard was to write things down to learn and stay accountable - this can be super helpful for some people! Plus, having a community to share health tips with is valuable.
