No more stress!

Stop stressing, especially over the small stuff. Find ways to deal better with stress. You could give yourself a little time out and take a walk, call a friend or perhaps engage in some relaxation techniques.

Be sure to take some time out to relax and calm down. Have some fun and enjoy the simple pleasures that life has to offer. Chronic stress has been known to depress one’s immune system so don’t allow it to affect yours.
