Let's talk about stress!!!
Stress is one of those things, some of it is good for us, but too much stress and we wind up rollercoastering down the slippery slope of losing grip of our lives.
The world that we live in, has made a full time occupation out of handing us stress filled lives. The knock on effect of this is that we have to go and find methods and ways to alleviate this stress.
Your mobile phone, the laptop, your ipad, the tv, social media (all of it), e-mails, forums, the newspaper (stories can cause distress) etc. You name it these things can all create low level stress if our engagement with these things is not checked. We live in a 24 hour world, you can be shopping at 3 in the morning if you want to.
Okay the bottom line is that we live faster, more informed and completely more plugged in lives than our predecessors. Not to say that life was not good then, however, we have information at our fingers tips and we can very quickly make changes in our lives.
Back in the day if you needed to find out something you couldn’t just tap it into google and say voila I have the answer. No, you were heading down the library and researching that thing!!! Or if you wanted a new washing machine it would not be delivered to you at the click of a button from your own home.
