Why are we so stressed?
It has become the norm. The majority of us are living with a certain level of stress that has woven it’s way into the fabric of our daily lives. We wait for the weekend, or the next vacation, in hopes that it will melt away.
The American Psychological Association reports that stress levels have risen over 40% in the past five years. Money, work, health concerns and job stability are often cited as some of the big causes of worry.
