What stresses people out is different.
For you, it may be when driving – drivers who cut you off, or don’t signal or simply being traffic can be a stressor.
We just did a month on Money Management and the topic of personal finances may stress you out.
Interactions with particular people: the manager at work, a particular co-worker or client, a certain family member, acquaintance, someone with the last name in-law, even some of your friends can be stressors in your life.
It may be someone you’ve never met like a certain politician.
Did someone come to mind as you’re listening to me right now?
