Friday Flick Find: HotForWords @ Yoga Time!

Today I’d like to introduce you to 28 year old Marina Orlova – also known as HotForWords.

Marina is one of those YouTube people with hundreds of videos and more than 250,000 YouTube subscribers. Not bad. Besides being a YouTube celebrity, she’s also a philologist (one who studies linguistics and etymology) and that’s pretty much what most of her videos are about – she investigates words and phrases and teaches her audience about them.

But that’s not all.

In this video, she not only teaches us about the expression “fight or flight”, she also teaches us about how the adrenalin released by the brain can turn into stress and anxiety, and gives an example on how one can “turn off” the brain and relax.

I decided early this week that I wanted to feature a HotForWords video this Friday, only problem was, I didn’t know which one. With almost 500 videos it would take me a day to watch them all – so I decided to go with the highest rated video she ever made, Yoga Time!
