"The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another"
Are you stressed? Is your stress healthy or unhealthy? Have you ever felt you are not able to handle your stress?
Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry or nervous. Stress is your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline. Stress is key for survival, but too much stress can be detrimental. Emotional stress that stays around for weeks or months can weaken the immune system and can even cause medical problems such as high blood pressure, fatigue, depression, anxiety and even heart disease. Stress can promote disease. It can make you gain weight and make you look older. Stress makes it difficult to control your emotions. It can affect your love life.
