Address the stress.

Stress is complicated.
The solution doesn’t have to be.

Stress is overwhelm.
Stress is creativity.
Stress is a promotion at work or launching a new venture.
Stress is the long commute, juggling work and home commitments.
Stress is becoming a parent or taking that big trip you’ve always dreamed of.

Stress is part of life. Stress just is.

Because stress is a life energy force in the body, like blood pressure, when it’s too high or too low it can cause problems. Symptoms like depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, drinking and smoking take an incredible toll.

Stress costs American companies $300 billion annually.

Stress is often the main driver behind lowered productivity, costly miscalculations, and increased medical healthcare costs.

Essi Systems’ Definition of Stress:

“Stress is the rate of wear and tear on your physical, cognitive and emotional self
as you respond to the people, places and things in your life.“

Esther M. Orioli, author of StressMap

Life is hard. Sometimes you need a Map.

Stress is not the same for all people. Not in the words they use, the experiences they perceive or the reactions they have.
And when left untreated stress accumulates in the body and can impair one’s health and ability to function.
