    time management. Somehow it seems that whatever you do you will never have time left to do everything you should have done.

    Meeting expectations and pessimism. As job oppurtunities fade a away and competition becomes more fierce, you are placed under more substantial pressure to live up to high levels of expectation. Pessimism also makes the world a far worse place to live in. Our world is probably in one of the best states it ever been in, we are provided for and looked after. However people and more centrally, the media, find ways to negate everything and portray the modern world as a worsening state of affairs.

    I'd have to say money on this one. Those who have it are afraid to lose it. Those who don't have it are struggling to get it. Sometimes it seems like the harder you pursue it: the more it escapes you.

    If you do get it usually comes at the cost of time and enjoyment, so is it really worth the hassle?

    The most stressful part of todays world is the 24hr society where everyone is pushed to meet targets.  You start with targets from birth till you drop dead - achieve target to pass exams to exceed targets to get a bonus in your job it's all one crazy. Increasingly people all over world are hooked on medical drugs to overcome stress and related issues - unless people get together and act to push back on those target monkeys the world is doomed :-)

    Senseless crimes and useless wars. These issues make you fearful and confused. Crime has become part of everyday life - it is as though human life has no value. What a pity!

    To fullfil all the expenditurs of a family by doing a job of little income. Inflation is getting more and more and if we want to survive just need to work more and more to earn great money or revenue.

    time management for everything and anything is the most stressful thing. time for family or for work,time for self or for social service,time for shopping or attending festivals etc etc......managing all at the same time is quite stressful as one does not want to ignore any but end up neglecting something!

    Wars, financial trouble, work, etc... have always existed, but I think the pace of the world today has increased so much, it's just made everything else that much more stressful, everyone's in a hurry to do everything. It pays to relax once in a while, just let the world pass by and not worry about constantly trying to keep up.
