The three factors that universally lead to stress

According to Dr. Gabor Maté, there are three factors that universally lead to stress for human beings:

1) Uncertainty
2) Lack of information
3) The lack of control

And here are two other bonuses:
* conflict that we're unable to handle
* isolation from emotionally supportive relationships (because isolation actually affects dopamine levels)

All stressors represent the absence of something that we perceive as necessary for survival- or our threatened loss.

So the next time you find yourself stressed, a great question to ask is why?

Maybe it’s all of the reasons listed above... 

If so, now what?

What will you do to find peace?
