Stress is defined as the adverse reaction people have to excessive pressure or other types of demands placed on them. Being under pressure is a normal part of life; it can be a useful drive that helps you take action, feel more energised and get results but, if you often become overwhelmed by stress, these feelings could start to be a problem for you. Stress is not an illness, it is a state. However, if stress becomes too excessive or prolonged, mental and physical illness may develop.
