Problems Caused by Persistent Stress

Stress is a normal part of life. The human body is designed to experience stress and react to it. Positive stress (like the birth of a child) can keep us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger. Stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between stressors. As a result, the person becomes overworked, and stress-related tension builds. Physical symptoms of stress include stomach distress, exhaustion, elevated blood pressure, headaches, trouble sleeping, chest pain, weight fluctuation, etc. To reduce stress, exercise regularly, eat healthy and balanced meals, accept that there are some things in life you cannot control, practice relaxation techniques (yoga, meditation, tai-chi), explore your emotions, and keep a positive attitude!
