Stress cannot be avoided because it is a normal physical and psychological reaction to the demands of our everyday lives. However, ill-managed stress can have a negative impact on our health and well-being as well as social relationships, and academic and job performance. Stress can wreak havoc on the immune system, and chronic pain may be experienced as a result of ill-managed stress. Stress management can prevent harmful psychological or physical disturbances. Stress management offers you a range of skills to manage life stressors.
