President's Message

Have you ever had one of those days when your head just hurts so much and you started panicking because you felt incredibly overwhelmed? I have. Countless times over my forty years in the workforce.

There’s so much to do and only so many hours to do it in. Your customers are demanding too much of your time and your family is getting too little of it. And just when do you have time for yourself to chill and reboot to get some energy to clear your mind? Probably never or not enough.

Being overwhelmed is definitely something to be taken seriously. To have the feeling that you’re drowning in responsibility can be devastating to your mental health. Depression or general unhappiness…anxiety and agitation…moodiness, irritability, or anger. Eventually, as we all know, it will affect your physical health by suppressing your immune system, upsetting your digestive and reproductive systems, increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke, and speeding up the aging process.

It’s really important to recognize that your spouse or a family member, your co-worker or, most importantly, you are displaying symptoms of being overwhelmed. The effects of stress can be contagious, and relieving stress shouldn’t be a burden for anyone to carry alone. Tell people you are freaking out about your workload. Having a friend, or being a friend, during a stressful period can make a huge difference.

Here are some great tips that are so simple and that you can use to help counterbalance the stress. Keep them in mind when you’re with someone else who is showing the signs of being overwhelmed.

Our industry is built on families. Not only do we move families, but the foundation of our individual businesses is family. We need to take care of each other. We’re all better when we’re functioning at full health.

50s Flashback

cam5_22012019.jpg

Thanks to those of you who’ve responded to our shout out for your pictures and stories about CAM from “the old days”

Here’s a 1950s photo of Tom and Paul Filgiano’s dad, founder of Meldrum The Mover in Montreal. The credo CAM2_01302019.jpgthat’s overlaid was recently written by author Robert Johnston, an employee of Meldrum The Mover.  As Paul tells CAM, anyone who has a passion for our industry, this credo ‘cuts deeply to the core of why we have chosen to make a career in the moving industry.’  Well done Robert – your words resonate with so many of us.

What stories do you know about your parents’ or grandparents’ involvement with CAM over the years?  We'd love to hear them and share with our members.  Please share them with Marian or Nancy. It's time to reflect back and celebrate!
