Based on the comic books of the same name by Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodriguez, Locke & Key debuted in 2020. The current season now streaming on Netflix will wrap up the story of The Locke family of Massachusetts. The series was actually filmed in Canada as are so many shows and movies.

The story centers around “Key House” and the Locke family who have lived there since before the Revolutionary War. It’s about magic in the form of keys cast by the family from a special metal found in the caves of the nearby cliffs. Each of the keys has special powers and were hidden throughout the house by the Locke family over generations.

Starring Darby Stanchfield (Scandal) and Emilia Jones (CODA), Locke & Key hooked me right away as it contains the irresistible things of mystery, keys, and old houses, not to mention demons summoned from the other side by the power of that mysterious metal. Highly entertaining. Highly recommended. Start at the beginning and you won’t be able to stop.

    Letting people when “your time” is occurring and to respect that you’re not engaging with anyone but taking time for yourself. It’s ok to say NO.

    Charitable endeavors can be great or small, but are tremendous stress relievers and give you a chance to recognize that your are more than just the job you hold.

  • Aim to detach your identity from your work

    There are many activities that can relieve stress. Painting, sculpting, pottery and so much more. I play music every week with friends. While doing this, I’m completely encompassed in what I’m doing and can’t think about anything else.

  • How do you deal with work-related burn out?
