Handling stress in your life
Stress is a fact of life. It is a normal response that can come from any life change or unexpected event, even a happy one such as a promotion. You need a certain amount of stress to keep you focused and motivated. But when the stress level gets too high, it has the opposite effect - you can feel upset and have trouble concentrating. If your stress level is elevated over a long period of time, it can increase your risk of health problems, including heart disease, depression, infections, and sleep problems.
