The past couple of weeks I’ve noticed some people are a little more on edge than usual and I think is attributable to this long, dragged out winter we’ve experienced this year. Everybody has got a wicked case of cabin fever and judging by this weekend’s forecast I suspect we’ll all be much more relaxed next week!
When it comes to the question of “what’s your biggest frustration or stress causing issue right now” I think (just my opinion) that the weather and gas prices would be near the top of most people’s lists. For me, it’s gas prices. This week they shot up to $122.9/litre and holding steady at the moment. It’s incredibly frustrating that the slightest tiff or some sort of geopolitical problem millions of kilometres away from your home can justify hiking gas prices so much at home. It’s unfair and unjust in my opinion. So that tops my list of frustrations.
According to a survey from a kickbox fitness centre called 9Round the top five causes of stress and frustration right now are:
5) A partner at 25.9%
4) Work at 29.5%
3) Health Concerns at 35.3%
2) Not getting enough sleep at 36%
1) Financial problems at 52%
Apparently slow wiFi can also cause a lot of frustration amongst people. I find tearing myself away from the phone or computer reduces stress! Either way, take care of yourself and have a great stress-free weekend.
