Hilaria Baldwin shares a simple stretch to help you deal with stress
Here's how to do it: Interlace your fingers behind your head. Inhale as you arch your back and open up through the chest as you lean back. Exhale, pressing all of the air out, round your spine as you arch forward and bring your elbows together. Repeat 10 times, while focusing on your breath. Take long, deep breaths and relax your shoulders.
"Don't let anything stress you out," Baldwin said. "It's never, ever worth it."

Make your own family media use plan. Media should work for you and within your family values and parenting style. When used thoughtfully and appropriately, media can enhance daily life. But when used inappropriately or without thought, media can displace many important activities such as face-to-face interaction, family-time, outdoor-play, exercise, unplugged downtime and sleep.
