These days most of us live our lives at a hectic pace, so it’s more important than ever to remember that we all need a break sometimes. Stress is a normal part of life, but when it continues chronically, without relief, it can wreak havoc on the health of both mind and body. Striving to be completely stress-free is an unrealistic goal; instead, try eliminating the excess stress that you can while learning effective ways to manage any stress that remains.
