The pace of modern life has become so fast and intense that it has created an epidemic in our society. This epidemic that affects the majority of us is stress. You have probably heard how stress affects the human body. It is not unusual for people to suffer all kinds of psychological and physical problems because they are afraid of dealing with the factors responsible for their stress.
Factors Responsible for Stress :
Believe it or not, our personal belief system greatly affects the quality of our everyday life, and it’s one of the main causes of stress in our lives. Everyone around us has an opinion; they have something to say about us or about other people. Some opinions are stronger than others, and the tendency to gossip usually prevails. But as much as we may try, it’s not possible to please everyone, and we are filled with distress and personal insecurity.
Another cause of stress in our lives is making assumptions and taking things personally. We make assumptions, and then take things personally that have nothing to do with us. Consciously or unconsciously, this habit generates a lot of internal pressure and stress
