I suppose there's nothing wrong with it, seeing uber-fit young women as a way to imagine and motivate ourselves to go to the gym, but that's not really the kind of inner-motivation I need. Personally I find these type of images a bit demotivational.
Stress can be a dangerous burden. We've all felt it whether it be a time constraint on an upcoming project, hitting every red light when you are alrea...
