Temper Temper! Stop. Breathe. Relax.









Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way. Stress may even help you rise to meet challenges – keeping you on your toes during a presentation at work, creating focus, and sharpening concentration. But beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health and quality of life.

Roughly 75 percent of the general population experiences at least some form of stress every two weeks. Half of those experience moderate or high levels of stress during the same two-week period. Millions of Americans suffer from unhealthy levels of stress at work. Stress contributes to heart disease, high blood pressure, strokes, and other illnesses in many individuals. Stress also affects the immune system, which protects us from many serious illnesses and contributes to the development of alcoholism, obesity, suicide, drug addition, cigarette addiction, and other harmful behaviors.
