The modern world has stressed us since we haven’t evolved far from tribes wandering the savannah. Think about that for a moment – think about the time before smartphones, the internet, computers, human flight, cars, locomotives, the Renaissance, the dark ages, the Romans, Greeks, and Egyptians, and Babylonians. Go way back, even before we figured out writing and money. Once you cast your mind back to that time and think about what surrounded us and affected us, you will understand actual reality. Almost everything that we worry about, about everything which depresses us and stresses us, is something we have invented as human beings. Let’s say you are stressed about being late for work to a job in the city center from your home in the suburbs. Cars, suburbs, and even time are all human inventions.
