Everyone complains of too much stress today. Blurred lines between work and home, over-programmed kids, every increasing expectations in all aspects in life.
Stress is a sign that we need to be doing something differently – it’s not necessarily bad- think of it as a message. It doesn’t mean we need to insulate ourselves, or do less. It suggests that we look at where we can make changes that counterbalance the stress, or minimizes the worst source.
I think this is why there are so many people seeking solace in more devout religion, meditation, and wellness. I think it’s healthier to think of it as motivation for making positive change.
