What is Stress?

Stress is the body's way of dealing with pressure. It is a human reaction to life’s demands. When we experience a high level of pressure due to situations occurring around us (life, work or social), it can trigger an increase in energy and alertness.

In many cases this is a healthy human reaction as it helps us to cope and get through the event or situation in the best possible way. However, too much stress can affect our health, so it needs to be managed appropriately.

Everyone experiences stress of some kind in varying levels of intensity during their lives. The important issue is how people are affected by stress and how they react or respond to the situation.
