Stress is part of everyday life,
So why I am so stressed out?

Modern societies have created more ways of being stressed than any previous generation. Some of the challenges of modern world include balancing: work, finances, family responsibilities, relationship(s), environmental stressors, chemical overload, emotional issues, nutritional challenges, trauma, psycho-spiritual challenges, illness (acute illnesses, episodic and chronic illness) and the list goes on.

Stress ManagementSearch online for stress management and you’ll find millions of pages including treatments. So why do so many claim to feel increasingly stressed? In a 2010 Lifeline survey Australians self-reported being more stressed than ever before. Statistically, Australians are more stressed than Americans! Are you one those people? Why?

As Dr Selye, the scientist who is considered the founder of the concept of stress in modern medicine, said, “Stress as a scientific concept suffers the misfortune of being too widely known and too poorly understood.”

And because people don’t understand stress, most stress management programs focus on delivering relief and ignore the causes of stress
