Stress is the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demands placed on them. There is a clear distinction between pressure, which can create a ‘buzz’ and be a motivating factor, and stress which can occur when this pressure becomes excessive” (Health and Safety Executive).
Stress is naturally occurring and without it we would have no motivation. Problems show up when we have too much stress and we become unable to cope with the demands placed on us. These stressors can be caused by illness, bereavement, relationships, school, work etc. and can, and often does, lead to anxiety. The effects of stress include insomnia, poor concentration, palpitations and can contribute to excessive alcohol consumption, smoking and excessive caffeine intake.
Too much stress over a long period of time can lead to serious long term health effects including hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, headaches, ulcers and skin conditions.
