Are small business owners more likely to stress and not know it?

If you are a small business owner or an independent professional do you think you are more likely to stress and not be aware of it?

Sometimes if somebody is saying something to us about our behavior or actions we might simply dismiss their observation because we might not value their opinion or we learned to tune out people who are not on “our side”. When we read something we might be more prone to look “inside” , take the time and analyze what’s really going on.

  1. Interesting. Stress is certainly an unknown killer. A certain amount of stress is not necessarily bad , as it is necessary for our survival. I guess it goes along with moderation is the key. One of the best ways to combat stress is with ” a good nights sleep” as we are better able to grasp what is going on and dealing with it. One should avoid things that causes them stress. Because a certain situation may cause me stress does not mean that another would have stress from it. Maybe they would embrace it. But we know what causes us stress and thus we should avoid those areas or deal with them..
