Modern life is fast paced, challenging and stressful. Just the event of past few months like COVID-19, losing your job or simply thinking about the future can cause severe stress. Stress is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Stress is your body's reaction to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you avoid danger or meet a deadline. But when stress lasts for a long time, it may harm your health. Learning how to cope with stress is the first step towards beating it.
