Everyone Is Affected By Stress

Dealing with stress? Need help to get your life back on track? Stress is the body’s natural response to challenging or dangerous situations. It triggers your “fight or flight” response, causing your body to produce more cortisol and adrenaline to give you the extra push to do what you must. In some cases, it can save your life while in others it encourages you to succeed at a presentation, exam, job interview, etc.

Unfortunately, stress is only beneficial up to a certain point. If stress is experienced for too long or too much at once it can begin to affect your daily activities and can lead to deteriorating your health and quality of life.
