Modern life poses ongoing challenges for all of us. Television, radio, the internet, cell phones and other electronic toys flood us with sounds and images demanding our attention. We are encouraged to buy those things that will make us perform better, look younger, and respond more quickly. In our working lives we are continually asked to work harder, make rapid decisions, and to produce superior results.
The impact of economic globalization, the tremendous growth of information disseminated via the internet, and the ravages of world-wide terrorism have dramatically affected how we live our lives. Change is everywhere and all enveloping. The impact of all these factors combine to erode the quality of our physical, emotional and mental health.
