Stress is the wear and
tear our bodies experience as we adjust to our constantly changing environment;
it has both physical and emotional effects on us and can create positive or negative
feelings. On the positive side, stress can help compel us to action; it can result
in a new awareness and an exciting new perspective. On the negative side, it can
result in feelings of distrust, rejection, anger, and depression, which in turn
can lead to health problems such as headaches, upset stomach, rashes, insomnia,
ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke.
Some examples are - The death of a loved one, the birth of a child, a job promotion, or a new relationship, we experience stress as we readjust our lives. By so adjusting to different circumstances, stress will help or hinder us depending on how we react to it.
