What is Stress?

Stress is the body’s physical and psychological response to a specific demand made of us or to an event in our life. In some cases it motivates and encourages us to complete a task we find difficult so that we can take pride in ourselves and what we achieve.

Most of the factors that cause stress are external, that is they come from the outside world. This can include things such as job pressures, family life, relationships, physical illnesses and major events that happen to you or your loved ones. The list of stress factors really is quite endless.

In an ideal world we would have just enough stress to keep us working to our full potential but unfortunately we don’t live in an ideal world.
