What is Stress?

Stress is a word used to describe how a person reacts to different situations and environments around them. As Dr. Keri Peterson explains in this video, stress is not always a bad thing

While stress from time to time is normal, long-term stress can be harmful and lead to problems such as chronic high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes and depression. It is important to know the causes of your stress so you can take the necessary steps to avoid feeling out of control.
