Feeling a certain amount of stress is normal. Stress helps our body and mind get ready to deal with the demands of life. Stress hormones can motivate you to do well at work and meet your responsibilities. However severe or long-lasting (chronic) stress can affect your mental and physical health. Chronic stress puts you at higher risk for anxiety, depression, and other health problems like digestive problems, muscle aches, heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke.
You may be at higher risk for stress-related problems if you do not get enough sleep, are in poor health, do not have emotional support, or have a mental health disorder like anxiety or depression.
