Stress in America: Why Are Americans Experiencing Stress?

49% of respondents to a recent nationwide poll conducted by NPR said they had a major stressful event or experience in the past year.  26% of those surveyed said they’d experienced "great stress” in the preceding month.  Many Americans are living with more stress than they believe is healthy and they aren’t having much success in reducing stress levels, according to recent studies by the American Psychological Association. Why are we so stressed, or at least claiming to be stressed?  What is stress, what causes it, and how do we know if we’re suffering from too much stress?  Join us on Friday, August 22 at 1:30 at the Bainbridge Public Library as we discuss the wide-ranging topic of stress.  Here’s a reading that will help spur your thinking on the topic.
