Chronic stress can come from many sources; living in a tough neighborhood, a dysfunctional family or job or just because they way you are made you are prone to stress. This can lead to fears, anxiety and even depression. It also contributes to physical ailments such as headaches, stomach pain, fatigue and even less resistance to colds and infections.
We all can benefit from developing a habit of stepping back and looking at our stress level and striving for a balance of relaxation and enough stress to keep us self disciplined. Hope this helps!
