In our modern times and fast-paced lifestyles, most of us feel “stressed” at least some, if not a majority of the time. If you take a minute to think about all the things in your life that can promote stress you might come up with things like: tension in relationships, deadlines at work, family obligations/ expectations, school assignments, a traffic-filled commute, financial worries or your feelings when reading political posts on social media.
