Busy. Stress. Anxiety. Tension. Fast-paced. To-do lists. Not enough time. Overwhelmed. Depressed. Those words sound familiar?
I know that in 45.5 years on this planet I have heard those words expressed more in the past decade than I can count.
I have also witnessed this firsthand as more than words on a piece of paper. I’ve seen it in the shaking hands and tear-filled eyes of coworkers and friends.
Sometimes I have even seen it in myself.
Too many people feel like they are about to boil over or spontaneously combust at any minute. It’s like we are living in a pressure cooker!
I am convinced one of the major contributing factors is our increased use of technology and our decreased use of the great outdoors. I am no scientist, but more studies keep coming out that support my theory.
This isn’t just an American problem.
