Around our world our faster and faster paced modern lives are now rapidly becoming filled to the limit—and often overflowing—with exceptionally unhealthy, often toxic, and virally multiplying combinations of-
- Faster, more intense work scheduling and deadlines
- Longer work hours with less down time/free time than ever before in human history
- Much more sedentary, much less physical workforce roles- nevertheless demanding more and more of our time
- Highly addictive technology, including the ubiquitous handheld variety
- Highly addictive online platforms designed specifically to increase addiction
- Much less time devoted (if any) to healthy food shopping and preparation
- Limited to no time devoted or applied to proper healthcare and/or health maintenance
And in the most technologically advanced, economically “successful” countries of our world, all of these toxic combinations are often exacerbated by a voracious consumer culture specifically designed and deployed to brainwash their masses into chasing the promised financial dream of personal “happiness”.
The end result for all of us consumer crazed hamsters caught running furiously on the wheels of our own misguided, unwilling or unconscious construction?
We seem to be running faster and faster, but we’re not getting anywhere we want to go!
And it’s safe to say that we’re suffering from a very specific, brand new type of stress which previous generations were never exposed to, yet our generation—and perhaps every next generation to come—will almost certainly never fully escape in our lifetimes.
Because as the primate species at the top of the global food chain, science is the track we humans have painstakingly constructed and then relied on to carry us to the top, and technology is the train which we must remain passengers aboard, if we are to maintain our now ever increasing global standard of living and our ever increasing expectations for our quality of life. So, as the clear winners of our evolutionary race to the top, we now find ourselves wearing the heaviest of crowns as Kings-of-our-Global-Hill.
Because our science-based, technology-driven journey has come with a punishing tax which we are now only beginning to understand, but one we’ve already been paying all along the way.
This means that our current levels of toxic addiction to our high-tech devices—especially but not exclusively the handheld variety—will almost certainly continue to increase as we find it more and more difficult to tear ourselves away from our online “connections”. Working, banking, shopping, travelling, eating, drinking, dating, playing and performing the countless tasks of our everyday lives are now all tied either directly or indirectly to our online world of instant connection, and our insatiable need to not only remain “connected”, but to then document every aspect of our lives and instantly “share” that information with our online world.
This is certainly a newly emerged and diabolically addictive scourge of a viral type of stress which we are most unlikely to shake off anytime soon.
And stress is a killer!
A quick look at just five of the stress-related US statistics alone (surveyed in 2019) offer sobering news regarding the consequences of our future health and wellbeing in our non-stop quest to stay on top-
- The Stress in America survey results show that adults continue to report high levels of stress with many reporting their stress has increased over the past year – American Psychological Association.
- 75% of adults reported experiencing moderate to high levels of stress in the past month and nearly half reported that their stress has increased in the past year – American Psychological Association.
- Approximately 1 out of 75 people may experience panic disorder/panic attacks – National Institutes of Mental Health.
- Stress is a top health concern for U.S. teens between 9th and 12th grade, psychologists suggest that if they don’t learn healthy ways to manage that stress now, it could have serious long-term health implications –American Psychological Association.
- 80% of workers feel stress on the job and nearly half say they need help in learning how to manage stress. With 42% saying their co-workers need such help – American Institute of Stress.
And these are only a small sampling of the discouraging health related statistics.
Recent studies strongly point to the fact that stress is also quickly becoming the leading factor in an increased annual percentage of worker sick days, as well as the leading factor in mental health-related visits to both public and private mental health offices and facilities.
But there is hope.
Because our human species is not only driven to succeed, we are also driven to explore, invent, adapt and continue to embrace change wherever we find it!
The outlook for our healthy future may in fact be daunting, but our human history proves nothing if not the fact that we as a species have a near endless capacity to discover new methods of coping with, and then more than competently solving every problem we face…including the ones we ourselves have brought to life.
In most very real ways, our modern-day version of stress is our “Frankenstein’s monster”
A mad yet hopeful dream of masterful control over life which can and will quickly become more than we can or should handle.
But we can also consider our evolving understanding, adaptation and development to our existing human condition-
- In the US alone, life expectancy has continued to trend upward with every generation (with some fluctuation)
- Our comprehensive knowledge and understanding of proper nutrition, healthy diet, and the availability of healthy food has never been higher
- The availability of healthy alternative therapies, practices, regimens and dietary supplements has never been higher
- Our understanding of the need to regularly “unplug” from our online world is increasing steadily, as is the alternative solutions to same
- We continue to learn, continue to seek, and we continue to grow as evolving human beings inside an evolving global landscape.
It seems more than fair to believe that stress—unfortunately but inevitably—will be our “new normal”.
But we can learn how to deal with our new challenges in increasingly inventive and alternative ways which won’t evolve burning down our castles in order to maintain our peaceful villages.
In short, we need not fear the very real monster of stress, but we do need to understand that monster and look for the many, many available, affordable and absolutely manageable ways in which we can soothe our savage beast.
