Though technology has made life simpler today, we look back and think about times where there was no satellite television and no mobile phones and no computers or the Internet and call that a simpler time. It’s ironic, but we have to deal with it. With the conveniences that life has thrown at us, it has somehow given a boost to expectations, both on the personal and professional front. This has led people becoming more stressful, and though stress cannot be avoided totally, one has to learn how to manage it, so that one can lead a happy and stressful life.
