Releasing Stress

One of the most widespread problems of modern times is what is often called the “pressure syndrome.” Certainly most of us are all too familiar with the high-level tension seemingly built into life and work, causing stress and all sorts of compound problems of mind and body.

There are many situations in which we may typically respond with stress: a multimillion dollar financial crunch for a business executive; an accumulation of bills to pay with the often inadequate take-home pay of the average worker; two term papers due on the same day for the student; a make-or-break audition for a musician or actor.
