Do you have these hidden sources of stress in your life? |

Stress comes in many different forms, and in many cases it’s unavoidable, but today I want to talk about some of the more subtle forms of stress that we might not even realize are having an effect on us.

It’s true that what seems only mildly stressful to one person may be extremely stressful to someone else, and we’re all effected to different degrees by the various stressors in our lives. It’s also true, though, that we can be unaware of the things that are causing us stress until they have been removed from our lives.Continue Reading

And since procrastinating can often make me feel more stressed since I know I have all of these uncompleted tasks looming on my to-do list, I wanted to find a way to help to reduce that source of stress as much as possible.  Continue Reading
