Stress Management

by

Everyone in today’s society has alot of stress. Is the stress today different than it was 50 years ago? We seem to be a society of people who are incapable of handling the stressors in our lives. We are seeing a higher use of medications to deal with life. I wonder if we are helping ourselves by taking medications instead learning ways to cope. Medications are necessary for some, but it seems that every patient I admit to the hospital is taking some form of medication to help them sleep, handle anxiety, or handle depression. I am worried that we are simply taking pills instead of learning coping mechanisms. We need to get away from being a society of pillpoppers and become a society that can handle what comes our way by maintaining a healthy body and mind.
