There have been many different definitions of what stress is. Stress is the emotional and physical strain caused by our response to pressure from the outside world. When people feel stressed by something that happens around him, their bodies react by releasing chemicals in the blood. The events that provoke stress are called stressors .

  • Tell God all about your cares and concerns, and leave them in His hands, you will get a feelings that there is someone who cares for you. So pray.
  • Consult a professional if needed. Sometimes stress and anxiety comes from some physical or mental problems. If you feel stress for a long time and nothing works to reduce it then visit a doctor to take medicine or counseling. Some hormone imbalance or adrenal fatigue also may cause you a stressful life.

      Before, I never really believe about stress. I always thought that you will have stress if you believe that you have it. However, over the years, I have really started to feel the stress from my work, my lifestyle as well as my age and commitment. There comes a time when I have to make some important decisions which will change the course of my life and it becomes very stress if I do not manage it well.

      What you have just written in your hub is simple yet very true. If we let stress to have control over our life, it will affect us in many ways. To lead a stress free life, we have to control over stress rather than be in denial, like the past me.
