Stress has come to mean so many things in our lives and can be experienced in a variety of ways. In one way, it could be explained as a physical, mental, or emotional strain or tension that impacts your body and health. Stress does not necessarily have to come from a traumatic experience. Often stress is simply a part of daily life. Identifying stress is the first step in managing its effects.
If we do not learn to manage our stress, it could lead to long-term problems such as stomach disorders, depression, stroke, heart disease, etc.
Do not let stress take control of your life. Start learning to let go of things you cannot control and recognize what triggers your stress. Work on becoming more resilient and healthier overall.
