Stress

Stress is a word many people use when the demands of their life seem to be too much to cope with. Everyone copes differently, and what one person finds stressful may not be a problem for someone else. Many of us struggle to deal with stress at times, but long-term stress is bad for our health and most of us want to get some control over it.
