I don't know about you, but when I'm stressed it is pretty tough to turn my brain off.

It's been a pretty stressful past few years, right?

With the COVID-19 pandemic, wars all across the world, and the economic state that the country is in; it's normal to want to find some sort of reprieve.

According to a study from the American Psychological Association, Americans are more stressed out than ever! In the survey conducted, the biggest stressors for people in the United States are supply chain issues, inflation, and Russian cyberattacks.

While most of us do not have any control over whether or not Putin is going to hack into our Facebook accounts, we do have some semblance of control over how we react these daily stresses.

For me, I have to constantly remind myself to take a step back from the internet and go outside and "touch some grass."

Another great way to detach and escape is to indulge yourself in your favorite piece of media. There is nothing like kicking back and watching one of your comfort movies.
