    Stress is an adaptive force that an individual employs when facing demands in their environment which are classed as threatening or over demanding with regards to their resources, thereby putting their well-being in danger. Stress ends up becoming dangerous when it appears often, lasts for an excessive period of time or is concentrated on a set organ, impeding both functional and psychological recovery. Adequate stress management helps us to achieve our goals while enjoying the journey.
