What is stress?
Stress is your reaction to any change that requires you to adjust or respond. It can be good stress (like planning your wedding) or bad stress (such as a toxic job, major relationship problems, or loss of a loved one). Remember, you can control how you respond to stressful events, even when it's very hard to do.
