Stress isn’t just an annoyance, or something that floats in and out of your life undetected by your body. It affects your physical self as much as your metal self, and can have lasting events on your health.
Of course you can never escape stress completely—life will always have its ups and downs, no matter how well-prepared you are and how cheery your disposition. But you can be smart about stress. Knowing what might cause it so you can prepare in advance is a great way to take charge of any situation that might come your way and meet it head-on.
