What’s Coming This Episode?
Is it just us or does everyone seem stressed these days? Are we all just working too darn hard? Stress is an interesting thing in that it doesn’t really exist; it’s something that we create ourselves. With that realisation comes the power to wave goodbye to it at any moment. So… how stressed are you?
Are you really stressed? Are you sure you’re not just overly busy? If things are getting out of control then there are some great ways to bring your energy back to where it should be.
Enjoy the show!
