Stress affects everyone. Everything we do has the opportunity to become stressful: dealing with kids, busyness at work, managing money and coping with challenging relationships. Stress is literally everywhere. A little stress is actually beneficial, but too much stress can wear you down and you sick both mentally and physically.
Stress is the body’s reaction to danger, the possible loss of a sense of belonging or issues sexually — whether they are real or perceived. When you feel threatened, a chemical reaction occurs in your body and acts as fight-or-flight — stress’s natural response.
