Think Thursday: Make Stress Your Friend!

20140611-223514-81314604.jpg
Stress is a body’s way of reacting to a challenge or a stressor such as an environmental condition or a stimulus.

For years, it’s been known to be the “public health enemy” and a condition that normally impacts a person’s mental and physical well-being negatively.

Well, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe it to be.

Psychologist Kelly McGonical shows how to see stress as a positive in this (less than 15-minute) video. She provides simple yet effective mechanisms for stress reduction. See for yourself!

Turn stress into a positive condition and make it your friend! 😉
Special thanks to my girl Lini! 😘

Happy Thursday!

I’m Loving: Fishtail Braid!

Lately, I’ve been thinking about wanting to grow my hair long enough to do a beautiful ponytail or side fishtail braid. I just love the simple yet intricate details of the overall look. It’s classy, fresh and even goddess-like.
See for yourself…

I enjoy it’s versatility. This hairstyle can be worn in a messy, relaxed or a more formal way. If you prefer a thicker fishtail, you can simply add hair clips or extensions to get a more fulsome look (I’m honestly thinking about this option right now).

To learn how to fishtail braid, press play!!!

Will you be rocking this hairstyle this season?

Happy Friday!
