The last few decades have placed a concentration on the advancements in technology. The millennial generation has developed a new energy emphasizing the need for efficiency, speed, and accessibility in work places and day to day activities. This expansion in the current and ever evolving technology has created higher expectations and increased intensity in our society. This vigor to grow in a technological era gives way to an indefinite amount of potentially beneficial societal improvements which will undeniably continue over the next decade. Unfortunately these developments, expectations, and new knowledge brought about unavoidable consequence. Stress! Our culture has increased stress levels on average by 30% in the last three decades according to NY Daily News. You could just ask some of our student residents at U-Stor-It Self Storage South Loop around finals at Roosevelt College.
The ages effected by stress have lowered and the levels have increased which has ultimately taken a toll on people, behaviorism, and life styles.
There are so many different ways to help you manage this pressure. As an individual, it is essential to find some sort of relief from whatever is burdening you. It could include regularly exercising, meditations, listening to music, volunteering, or reading a book.
Environments also can alter the level of stress a person may be experiencing such as cleaning or organizing your work space or home.
“Clutter has been said to be directly correlated to pressure. You should organize as thoroughly as you can so that you are able to access whatever it is that you will need immediately.”

I always struggle with maintaining cleanliness, but one easy method of sustainable keeping your space clean would be by discarding or relocating rarely used possessions. Storing bulky furniture or belongings that you can’t part with but never use will make a big difference.
Remember to take a break! Sometimes life can become overwhelming and it can become so easy to be entirely absorbed in a task. Frustration and overworking oneself will more likely create less productivity and poorer results.
Whatever it is, be sure that you are taking care of yourself and have some sort of stress reduction method at hand to ensure your health, strength, and happiness.
