(Mind32)-What causes stress?

Let us THINK : By Dr.King  (Author of books on Yoga,Spirituality,Gardening...) show

Summary: [Quick links] [Pause] There are two things here. The external events that induce stress and the internal brain mechanisms that interpret the external events as stress. I have seen many poor villagers who have barely sufficient to eat. Their life is full of uncertainties. Day in and day out they face all kinds of hardship and their life is really a struggle for existence. But they somehow seem to withstand all these hardships and manage to pull on. On the other hand, I have seen many well-to-do youngsters who commit suicide unable to bear the stress they face in their life. This is in spite of the fact that they have a secure life, with all comforts, good position in the society, great educational background and so on. Why is this anomaly?
