Stress affects everyone at some point in our lives. It is a feeling of emotional or physical tension, and it can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry or nervous. Stress is the manifestation of your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. In short, it is the body's way of rising to a challenge and preparing to meet a tough situation with focus, strength, stamina and heightened alertness. When we neglect to look after ourselves, stress can build up and become an even bigger problem. Everyone faces stress in different ways, depending on the individual.
