Making Use of Your Spare Time in a Self-Supporting Manner

When we have free time on our hands, we have millions of different options to choose from. We could start reading a new bestseller that has seemingly been on everyone’s lips for the last few weeks. We might decide to simply sit and binge watch our favorite TV shows all day. We might decide to research recipes or take care of our household matters.

5 Things to Avoid When Stressed

The other day, my husband and I were discussing how difficult it is to manage stress in a healthy way. We went on to share some of the bad habits we’d fallen into when dealing with high-stress situations. After this discussion, I decided to do a little research on the topic of stress. I found that there were many articles discussing the management of stress [which I know is incredibly important since stress is one of the most common health ailments], but not necessarily that much attention given to what we should avoid.
