In a 10-year study, people who were unable to manage stress effectively were shown to have a 40 percent higher death rate than nonstressed individuals. Our society is bent on quick fixes when life challenges come our way. We medicate ourselves and our children. Americans consume five billion tranquilizers every year in an effort to control their stress. More
