Stress: Some would say it's the absolute worst.

Being stressed is like taking the express train. Destination: anger, despair, and chaos.

Nearly half of all Americans say they're concerned about how much stress is in their lives. And working adults feel this even more.

But it also gets to people who are going through health issues.

As well as any number of other things, such as a bad commute or a rocky relationship.

Luckily, the internet sometimes graces us with a GIF or a meme that so spectacularly increases our mood that we have to save and cherish it forever.

If you have one of these, share it with the class, because we get stressed too.

Maybe it's this cartoon dog who speaks to your life...

Or this calligraphy that's both calming to watch and reflective of how you feel...

Cute-ass sloths taking cute-ass selfies, anyone?

Vine videos are fun, too.

Like this one of a metal-singing grandpa. KILLIN' IT.

Personally, I like to sit by the ocean and watch the waves.

And when I don't have that nearby, I use GIFs like this. The movement of the water reminds me to go with the flow and have faith that everything will be all right.

So, show us your favorite thing to look at in times of distress.

What makes you feel like a million bucks when your bank account only has one? Your stories could help others who still haven't found their stress-relief thing to bookmark. (But you know, no porn please.)
