Sleep is a critical aspect of our health. It is often what we tend to loose during stressful times. We get less and less sleep. Either because of not making time for it, not slowing down prior to trying to sleep, or simply not being able to fall asleep due to stress. All of it, negatively affects our life, health, and work. It’s different for everyone, but adults need between 7-8 hours of sleep per night.
We are not in control of outside conditions but we are how we react to them. We are also not in control of how other people behave. In other words, how we interpret events, people, and how we react to them is up to us. Being positive does not mean that we should always be the same way, but rather seeing things mostly in a positive way. This drastically can reduce stress levels. When one door closes, another one tends to open.

Entrepreneurs and people should surround themselves with humor and people that are uplifting. Read funny things, watch funny movies and videos. Create as much opportunity to laugh, as it is possible. Laughing has many positive effects on the human body and mind.
