Does everyone experience stress?

ANSWER

Everyone experiences stress. Our bodies are meant to feel stress and react to it. It keeps us alert and ready to avoid danger. But when stress persists, the body begins to break down and illnesses can happen. The key to handling stress is identifying the sources of stress in your life, learning ways to reduce stress, and managing stress.
