For many years I worked in the field of Stress Management. Part of my work involved going into large international organizations and helping them to identify the causes of stress in their work force and then to help them reduce these factors.
Stress can cause so many problems. For a sample of articles on how it can affect things such as back pain, the effectiveness of vaccines, your immune system and even lead to fat around the waist have a look at this link. CLICK HERE
One frequent complaint was from people who felt they were expected to be doing loads of different things at the same time. Trying to juggle too many balls at once. I clearly remember hearing many people complain “I can only be in one place at a time”
Being able to take a real break and get away from it all is naturally a great help. But taking a vacation can itself create additional stresses. Even on vacation many people feel the need to be in two places at the same time. They are on vacation yet worried about their home, their pets and their belongings.
Someone recently told me that she used to ask a friend to ‘pop in and feed the cat, pick up the junk mail and make the place look lived in’ But she continued saying ‘ but I still worried. What if the cat became ill when nobody was around, what if the home was broken into at night, what if….‘ So she ended up like this picture. Trying to be both at home and relaxing on vacation.
