on a regular basis. I promise you’ll feel better and enjoy the time away from the screens.
Hopefully, this Ted talk will give you the inspiration to start helping you cope with stress better in your life. Remember, more stress equals a quicker demise.
Quit worrying about the small stuff and start the habits that will help you live a long, healthy, and prosperous life.
