With lots to do in my masters program, as well as English essays in need of assessment piling up at work, I am feeling a bit stressed. But what else is new? I am always a bit stressed. Even when I might not have a reason to be. So when I came across this video, I was intrigued, and also a bit worried. Can being stressed affect my health? Or worse. Can you actually die from being too stressed?
Watch this to find out!
In my opinion, a great and illustrative clip. I think that the channel AsapSCIENCE has many good ones. You might also be interested in finding out the answers to questions like:
- Why do we cry?
- What if we stopped going outside?
- What if you stopped sleeping?
- Could we record our dreams?
- Which came first – the chicken or the egg? (This must be the ULTIMATE question!!)
Perhaps something to be inspired by and use in the classroom? (I also just discovered that if you press the «CC» button on the bottom wright you get subtitles as well).
But back to my question. Luckily I calmed down when they concluded with the quote:
«So when life gets the best of you, just remember, you don´t have to do it alone. Spend some time with those you love – it may just save your life»
Therefore I am now making waffles and inviting some friends over. The work can wait until tomorrow!
(Perhaps I then I will need to watch «weird ways to burn 200 calories»??)
