Refreshment of body and mind

When you are having a hard day, full of environmental pressures, then stress isn't far away from you. And I hope you already know how dangerous stress can be. It can trigger depression and affect your physical health. For that reason, it is important to know how to deal with stress. There are probably many things to feel really good about each day, but it's easy to miss out on enjoying a day in our life if our minds are filled with worries and our bodies are tense with stress. You know that we can't go back in time, so you can't have a day to waste. After work perhaps you can have a relaxing pastime such as walking, reading, or listening to music which I do the most. Everyday you should give yourself a break even if it's only for a few moments, get enough sleep, and work off your stress with activities like jogging, painting, or photo hunting. Just make your environment comfortable and suit to your needs.

Featured Artist: Kate Nash

Kate Marie Nash is an English singer and songwriter. The first song I heard was 'Mouthwash'. I saw the video clip on TV a few months ago and since then I began looking for her videos on YouTube. The songs I like are : skeleton song, pumpkin soup, mouthwash and foundations. I really like her accent from her UK background. She isn't very vocal but I like her, she's different. In this video she covers Arctic Monkeys 'fluorescent adolescent' and you can actually see her reading Arctic Monkeys lyrics. The one sung by Kate has faster tempo than the Arctic's.
