10 Quotes On Stress To Help You Unwind:

by Carole Bourne

“Today I will uplift the atmosphere in my mind”

It’s time to give your stress wings and let it fly … away.  Lets be honest,  I mean really, is all that continuous stress and excess worry really worth it ?

Will the things you are rehashing,  over and over again in your mind today really matter in few years time.  And more importantly, do you really know the side effects or damage that’s happening below the surface of a worried looking face.
