Winter Break Challenge: the ninth day

Today I spent about 40 minutes reading two chapters of the book and also about 20 minutes watching some videos on the website TED Talks. There were some small lectures about why we dream, how stress affects our body, why sleeping for 7–8 hours is so necessary for our health and sanity and also about state of depression.
