Stress has a powerful impact on various aspects of your life—not only can it affect your mood, energy level, relationships, and work performance, stress can also cause and exacerbate a wide variety of health conditions. Acknowledging that you feel stressed and taking action to cope with it is the only way to live cohesively alongside moments of stress. Becoming aware of our emotions and behaviours requires a lot of effort but once accomplished it allows us to accept that feeling and that’s when we are ready to take action to tackle it.
Stress is our body’s natural response to feeling pressure or not being able to cope. Stress is not age related, as children, teens and adults can experience it.
Why do we need to talk about Stress?
Although being a natural response, stress can be detrimental by affecting our personal and interpersonal lives. Our energy level, mood, motivation, performance and relationships can be affected when stress is not acknowledged.
