Stress is your body’s response to demands that are placed on it. It’s the “wear and tear” experience as you continually make adjustments to changes in your life. Demands may be external, say bills, friends, work, relationships, or they may be in your mind, for example, how you feel about yourself. So stress is commonly considered to be a bad thing. Is it really the case? Not really. In fact, I should say, everyone needs a certain amount of stress in order to live well. Stress is what gets you out of bed in the morning, giving you extra zest and vitality to do all sorts of things: presentation, sport, work. But too much stress may cause problems.
As a negative factor, stress can destroy work and home relationships. Too much stress may cause distraction, anger, anxiety or fear. To modern people, it is important to note that too much stress may result in a range of health problems, including headaches, upset stomach, high blood pressure, even strokes and heart disease. Stress becomes a problem or “distress” when you have either too little or too much of it. Many women complain about having too much stress in their lives. This over-stress needs to be reduced to a more manageable level. The over-stress that people experience may be acute such as the loss of a job, divorce, a death or chronic such as being unemployed for a long time, being in a bad relationship, or long-term illness. In either case, too much stress at either an acute or chronic level can exhaust your body and ultimately lead to health problems. Therefore, people should learn to adjust lives and mood, so that have less stress and live a healthy and happy life.
