I remember a time when I had a very bad day at work and on my way back home, I chanced upon a video on one of the social media pages.

I had heard that chocolate is a mood enhancer, but I never knew that even watching it could be so refreshing!

Soon I discovered that it was not just for chocolate but same for cheese, sauces, milk, stakes and every other things related to food.

5. YouTube Videos

YouTube has emerged to be the best friend, philosopher, and guide that man had ever had in the history of human civilization.
