Stress is a common problem generated by modern lifestyle. Most of us often walk around with constant worries of some sort, and financial worries remains right at the top of that list for most of us. Some of us have constant worries that have snow-balled into ulcers. We have millions of people on anti-depressants, anti-anxiety medications, or self-medicating with drugs and alcohol.
Despite all this, struggling with stress is often seen as a weakness of mind or will. Seeing a therapist or going on psych medications both have huge stigmas attached to them. Furthermore our high-speed, high-stress lifestyles just make things from bad to worse. We all agree that stress is a common problem; however it is not one that is commonly addressed as a priority or with understanding.
This book attempts to make a difference to all these. This book is not about a quick fix to all your problems. Neither it is going to teach you any magic formula that will melt away all your stress and leave you completely calm and happy for the rest of your life.
“Modern life stress” is a book exploring the complete picture of stress in our modern lives and in modern society. It explains the origins of stress, the different types of stress in our lives, and how stress actually benefits us, and the effects of stress on our bodies. It then goes on to give strategies for responding to and minimizing your stress and helps you to come up with a stress-reduction plan. Finally, it addresses chronic and severe stress in our lives, how to cope with it, and when to seek professional help. The 7th chapter moves from dealing with stress in our own lives to helping to manage the stress of those around us.
