Feeling under Pressure and Stressed? These Action Items Can Help.
Written by Mary Lou von Wyl
When you were a kid, did you use the word ‘stress’? Did you talk about stress when you were in school? What did you and your friends say when you talked about having too much homework to do and not enough time to do it? Or when you had to run home to make sure you were there in time for dinner? What did you say when you wanted to talk about your teacher and your parents demanding things of you? Did you talk about feeling stressed?
It seems that somewhere along the timeline of our lives, we start using the word ‘stress’ to describe situations like those above.
