Stress. The fast pace of life in Hong Kong, named the city that never sleeps can overwhelm the senses. Stress, if not properly dealt with, can cause a reaction of anxiety, nerves on hilt, to the point that it can even cause severe illness. In order to manage stress, we seek ways to fight this enemy so-to-speak in order to sustain a healthy and balanced life. For example, hiring a virtual assistant can eleviate your day-to-day stress. Holiday research for best prices, calling your preferred airline to upgrade your flight with miles or even just helping you make a call to book a restaurant reservation are some of the little things a virtual assistant can do to help de-stress and de-clutter.

Ten years later, she realises that if one’s belief that if stress is a good thing, yes, a great experience, it will change your mindset on how to manage stress, thus allowing you to live a longer and healthy life How is that possible? Find out more in her TedTalk here and I sincerely guarantee that with an open mind, this will change your perspective and could even change your life.
