Many aspects of modern life, when added all together, can really put pressure into our ability to cope.
No one thing may be a problem, or feel like an issue; but when we look at how all of these individual things can chip away at our resilience - we can begin to see why things may feel more difficult to cope with than we expected.
Many of us have some sort of financial stress. Balancing all the things we try to accomplish, in work & play, can sometimes feel like a never-catch-up endless to-do list. Not all of us are eating the healthiest of diets. Not all of us are getting enough exercise. We have a tragic loss of rest, and loss of quality sleep, in our culture. Lots of people are just not sleeping enough.
Sleep is our body's reparative time.
We have a tremendous amount of pressure in our modern electronic lives. Turns out the computer revolution seems to have made us busier than ever! And many of us use stimulants to help us cope with this vastly increased pace of life.
For many of us, sugar, caffeine and alcohol are a normal part of our everyday lives.
Virtually every one of us spends some part of our day on our electronic devices.
Adding up all the things that pressurise our ability to cope is what adds up to tipping us into the state of STRESS.
The busy-ness of modern life wears us down, it affects our immune system, and our minds have little time to rest in the onslaught of this over-information age. It's no wonder most of us feel tired all the time.
This busy-ness is the kind of low-grade stress that undermines our health. This undermining of our wellness is what makes it less possible to cope with major challenges, that in turn become major stress.
