How does your lifestyle contribute to your stress level?
Sometimes, if we’re not careful, our lifestyle can impose an unhealthy level of stress. We can make adjustments to our lifestyle and lower our stress level. It’s not easy when we are bombarded with ads encouraging us to live beyond our means. Learning to say no to the temptations to live beyond our means is a good step to lowering one’s stress level. A minimalist lifestyle is one way of easing the stress from pressures associated with consumerism.
