“You’re too close to the TV, you’re going to go blind!" Yeahhhh, I’m sure by now you’ve discovered that Blindness is a little more complex than watching TV too closely. However, there are several other things you NEED TO KNOW!

2.Cracking your knuckles will not cause Arthritis. Although it can cause the people around you to be bothered, or even slightly irritated at the disgusting pop noises coming from your hands.
3.Reading in the dark, wont cause you to go blind. Although it can strain your eyes and maybe cause you to go to sleep resulting in your missing that ultra important Final Exam at 8am!!!!
4.Don’t worry, that piece of gum you just swallowed wont get stuck in your intestines. It’’ll come out, just like everything else does. Ok, yeah this one is nasty. NEXT!
5.Don’t look in the microwave while your food cooks, you’ll be infested with radiation!! Ok, definitely don’t believe this one! Look at your food all you want, it’ll probably sound like a War Battle so it’ll be worth watching for sure!
I.Think of a peaceful beach, or your favorite coffee shop. This will help you calm down.
3.Breathe deeply, in and out!
I.Cliché, I know. However, for many people, practiced breathing exercises work remarkably well!
4.STEP AWAY FROM THE SCREEN!
I.Let your phone breathe, those emails can wait. A change of scenery can go a long way.
5.Play your favorite tunes!
I.Hop on that fire playlist you made a year ago after you got that raise you were really waiting for! Listening to your favorite songs really helps clear your mind and most importantly annihilate your stress!
I.Ok, maybe don’t buy a thousand dollar TV, but definitely go out of your way to remember to always keep yourself first on your priority list. The rest can wait, but you are the most important item on your TO-DO list! So go ahead, buy that triple chocolate mocha, tiramisu cake you’ve been drooling over. Thank me later!
