Stress happens to everyone. There is good and bad stress. Good stress happens when you have enhanced performance or adaptability in response to some demand. The “good stress” triggers needed adrenaline to get you through whatever situation your facing.
However, sometimes stress can be overwhelming or debilitating. Instead of enhancing your performance, the overwhelming stress impedes it. You may feel ill or confused and without energy.
If this sounds like you, keep in mind, you are not alone. 77% of Americans experience chronic stress. Chronic stress not only impacts daily activities but also your health and wellness. In fact, over half of all illnesses are attributed to the long-term impact of stress.
