All of us get stressed every once in awhile. Certainly, to be human is to encounter stress occasionally. But stress occurs in lots of different forms and to be ready to control stress we have to first understand what “stress” is.
The challenges of every day life like enduring the tiresome commute to and from the office; the stress and anxiety from your demanding work; and all the family commitments that you need to attend to — these are all recipes for burnout. Even on weekends, you can’t seem to get some rest. No matter what you do, you still feel dead tired. But like most people, you know that you must not give in to all the pressures at home and at work.
What can drive someone to insanity? Certainly, insanity is something that is commonly understood (or misunderstood) and usually carries some sort of stigma in the popular consciousness. If you believe in modern psychology and psychiatry, there are literally thousands of forms of insanity that a person can end up developing over a lifetime. Some of them, like depression, are temporary, while others, like social anxiety, require more work for a person to get through. However, there appears to be some commonality as to what actually brings about most of the forms of insanity that people go through. Which brings the question to bear: is there a common, underlying trigger that compromises the stability of a person’s mental health?
To be stressed is the lack of peace. Peace is just a condition of psychological calm and tranquillity, with no anxiety. Peace is our assurance that in the middle of awfully tough times, all is well. It seems today, that stress versus peace is more the order of the day. As witnessed in our day to day lives and not only in our personal life but also by those who live around us.
