Uh, what

After my trainer sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, they have me watch these fairly awful videos for my last fifteen minutes of cardio.  Today's was about avoiding stress.  Their advice was mostly sound—don't worry so much about things that aren't really the end of the world if they don't get done on time or perfectly or whatever.  But the way they said it was a little... off.
"Cars, money, jobs, relationships... these can all be replaced.  You can get new ones.  But not your health and well-being."
Er, what?  Yes, I suppose that one can theoretically abandon all of their friends and loved ones and start over from scratch.  I'm not thinkin' that's great advice.
