Some years ago, the World Health Organization predicted that by the end of this decade, half of the top ten medical problems worldwide would be stress-related, and another study found that 54% of people worldwide complain of stress at work.
The root of the problem is simple: We often try to do too much, more than is humanly possible, and we put our mind, body, and spirit under pressures that we were never meant to handle.
The inspirational stories and articles in this issue of Motivated were just what I needed when I felt the mounting pressure of my to-do list. They helped me to reassess, adjust my work habits, and reduce the stress I was under. I hope they will do the same for you.
