How can stress affect you?

ANSWER

Stress affects us all. You may notice symptoms of stress when disciplining your kids, during busy times at work, when managing your finances, or when coping with a challenging relationship. Stress is everywhere. And while a little stress is okay -- some stress is actually beneficial -- too much stress can wear you down and make you sick, both mentally and physically.
