The classes of hassles
It is literally impossible to get through even a single day without encountering one or more of the endless varieties of hassles. As you read through the following list, think about an average day and how these hassles, commonly called stressors, may be reducing your enjoyment of life.
* Emotional hassles. This category includes the fears and anxieties we struggle with. For example: Can we prevent nuclear war? What if I run out of gas? How am I going to pay the light bill?
* Family hassles. Interactions with family members can be stressful: The striving of teenagers for independence, a spouse who drinks too much, in-laws visiting.
