Stress is our body's reaction to coping with physical, mental or emotional pressure. Stress can manifest as feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, anxious or unable to relax. It can affect your breathing, disrupt your sleep or eating habits and worsen pre-existing health conditions or addictions. Continuous, ongoing stress (chronic stress) can lead to various auto-immune illnesses and burnout.
