Stress isn't always a bad thing, but over time, continued strain on your body from routine stress can contribute to serious physical and mental health problems. Stress is difficult to define because sometimes an appropriate stress response is inappropriate to another. However, the evidence is clear that most stress is a negative. Speaking with a trained professional can help you learn to deal with stress and become more aware of your own thoughts and feelings. Common types of treatment include: cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, alternative therapies and medication.
