Make an Origami Boat, Feel Good About the World

Stressed? Life got you down?

Over here in Chicago, we're dealing with the third snowiest winter on record, and in between scraping off new layers of ice on our car and teaching our dog not to pull on the leash every time she discovers a new ice patch, things have been a little...blah.

That's why I try to take every opportunity I can to watch one of Leyla Torres' lovely little origami videos. Hate folding paper? Watch it anyway, and let Torres' Colombian accent soothe away all your worries and fears as she whispers to you about mountain folds. Better than therapy and only takes five minutes.
