GOOD STRESS VERSUS BAD STRESS
Signs that a person are stressed include having headaches, an upset stomach, low energy, etc.
Studies show that stress increases the risk of conditions such as obesity, heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, and depression. These conditions are all very damaging to a person's overall health.
Everyone is affected by stress. Stress is a part of daily life that we must learn to cope with. Stress not only affects the person that is stressing, but the people that interact with that person. The stress you show puts stress on others.
