Hi, reader pals. Fun news. HuffPost Live discovered us and has invited me to join a panel discussion on whether Millennials (those born in the 80’s and 90’s) really are the most stressed-out generation of all, as a new study implies.

It was this blog post that caught their notice. So feel free to check it out if you haven’t before, and if you want to watch the live discussion, it’ll be airing on the HuffPost Live website at 3pm Eastern Time this Monday, February 11th. Here’s the link you can follow to watch: http://huff.lv/YjOwmZ

If you catch the discussion and you’ve got something to say, definitely take to the HuffPost comments, and in the meantime, if you’re a fan of this blog, share share share the news! The more the merrier. You guys are a great community of readers and I always look forward to hearing what you have to say.
