Stress Management

Stress Management

In the modern-day stress has become a part of the routine. We as humans are so used to managing stress at work, at home, and socially that we fail to realize the impact it has on our bodies.  When our body is faced with any kind of situation/threat it automatically shifts to fight or flight mode which is known as the stress response. 

Stress, when dealt with properly can help a person stay focused, increasing the quality and efficiency of work but if not it can lead to feeling overwhelmed frequently, anxiety, sleep difficulties, weight problems, and so on. These are the reasons that stress management strategies are so important to implement.
