What is Stress?
It’s an unfortunate fact that we’ve all experienced stress before. The most common cause of stress is work, but this physiological response can come from fear and uncertainty in many other aspects of our lives: relationships, the state of the world, or the everyday pressure we put on ourselves. Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension that usually occurs when we face moments of change or situations in which we feel threatened. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or scared.
