Stress Change

Stress Change

Lately there's been a fair bit of stress in my life; enough to potentially drag me down and bury me underneath it.

But it's not been of my doing, and this morning listening to a podcast by Barbell Shrugged (who's have thought, huh??) on diet and nutrition, I realised why I've been able to work through it.
