We all get stressed from time to time, it’s only normal. In fact, in our society sometimes being a little stressed is seen as a “badge of honor.” After all, if you’re a little stressed, that means you’re working hard! Right? You’re hustling and bustling and making progress towards your goals.
Well, not necessarily. You might just be building up more anxiety in your life.
Stress can come from all directions. Maybe someone stepped on your brand-new shoes during your commute. Or perhaps you are 1 day late with your credit card payment. Or maybe you dropped a few eggs while bringing groceries home and storing them in your fridge.
Stress can also come from things like stress over family issues, work issues, going to the dentist, paying your auto insurance bills, paying the rent, stressing over the economy, etc.
Though some stress can be a good thing, overall, it’s a very unpleasant feeling that can have a detrimental impact on your quality of life. If left untended for long, it can lead to anxiety, depression, and so on.
