It’s April 2022, and it’s National Stress Month!  If you think life is stressful in the US, in Spring 2022, you are not alone!  If you think it’s more stressful now than in a long time, you are not alone.  If you think we are living in unusual times, you are with the majority.  The American Psychological Association regularly conducts a Stress In America poll, which they began in 2007.  And this year, I was very excited to see the results, because they match what I see in my stress management practice.  The latest APA results were published in March, yes, 35 days ago.  How stressed people feel and what they are stressed about has changed!  Here are some key points from the APA’s press release:

  • More adults are stressed about inflation and the invasion of Ukraine that any other issue covered in the 15-year history of this key poll.
  • Two thirds of adults reported their lives had been forever changed by the Pandemic.
  • People’s main concerns, all reported by 80% or more, are inflation, supply chain issues (will there be toilet paper tomorrow?), Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and potential retaliation from Russia, including cyberattacks.

   The CEO of APA, Arthur C. Evans, Jr., says:

The number of people who say they’re significantly stressed about these most recent events is stunning relative to what we’ve seen since we began the survey in  in 2007…we’re now reaching unprecedented levels of stress that will challenge our ability to cope.

From my longtime energy healing practice, I ask you:  how are YOU dealing with these issues?  And how are you dealing with your relationships, with everyone so stressed out?  Be sure you’re taking care of yourself in the Big Three areas:

  1.  Eating healthfully
  2.  Exercising
  3.  Getting quality sleep

If you want more tips, check out my hundreds of free articles online, through this blog.  Or check out the practices in my books (shown below).  They offer an array of ways to trade in your stress for energy, find and deepen your personal peace, and learn to meditate for deep relaxation and spiritual connection.

And any practices you incorporate as LifeToolssm will move you ever more into being Healthy Happy and Loving Lifesm!  And that is what I want for you!
