Article Summary: 

Stress is the body's response to real or perceived threats, and it can be both helpful and harmful. It prepares us for action but can become overwhelming and affect mental and physical health. Stress arises when demands exceed resources. Strategies to manage stress include identifying problems, problem-solving, talking about issues, simplifying life, changing unhelpful thoughts, practicing stress management techniques (like yoga), staying active, and engaging in enjoyable activities. While stress cannot be eliminated, practicing these strategies can help maintain wellness and regain control.


Stress, response, strategies, mental health, wellness, management.
