Not all stress is bad; stress and challenges in everyday life are important for human development. However, when levels of stress are too high or exist for a prolonged period, danger arises. Minimising or controlling the levels of stress in your life is important to maintain good physical and mental health.

There are many things that can cause stress, including work, relationships, and financial concerns. The most important thing is to identify the stressor and look at what changes can be made to eliminate or reduce it.
