Life today is highly stressful. Enough stress over a prolonged period of time undermines our potential for living, working, and loving at an optimal level.
Work, school, finances, relationships, parenting, health concerns, care taking, and loss can be stressful aspects of life. In additional to external stress there is internal stress caused by unresolved hurts, fears, traumas, negative thoughts, harsh self judgments, and worries. The interplay between the external and internal stress can play havoc with our lives. It can lead to anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, health related issues, physical/emotional exhaustion and compromised relationships.
