You Can’t BreatheJeff Tom
From 2014 to 2015, average stress levels in the U.S. rose from 4.9 to 5.1 on a 10-point stress scale, with a particular increase among adults reporting “extreme stress.” The top 4 sources of stress are: money, work, family responsibilities and health concerns. (Stress in America Survey, American Psychological Association, 2015)
With the daily pressures of work responsibilities, family responsibilities and obligations, long commutes and not enough hours in the day, we are exhausted. Even a small change that reduces some stress, saves time and money and frees up some sanity is a huge step in the right direction.
Since 3 out of 4 doctor’s visits are for stress-related ailments (The American Institute of Stress), reducing stress in general, and by association, reducing office visits, may be critical to lowering these numbers.
