Stress has always been something that we all have to deal with every single day of our lives. There is good stress and there is bad stress, but many of us suffer from bad stress as a direct result of the lifestyle that we lead and the job that we have. We are so caught up in making our way up the corporate ladder, we forget about things like our physical and mental health. Many of us forget that we have families at home and we return to our property so late in the evening, which doesn’t give us an opportunity to talk to our kids before they go to bed. Modern western lifestyle is all about working to pay bills and then doing it all over and over again until retirement can release us. It is no way to live, but this is a life that many of us choose and so we suffer from high blood pressure, irregular heartbeats and many other ailments as a direct result of leading a very stressful lifestyle.
