People make a fatal mistake when it comes to dealing with stress. They believe that because their stress comes from their work, their exertions and their difficulties that if they reduce these things, the stress will disappear.

Why is this, because as Rabbi Tatz explains, a person is most at ease when they know they are getting on with what they’re supposed to be doing. It’s really as simple as that!
