We've all heard that stress is bad for us.
According to the Mayo Clinic stress can give you headaches, muscle tension or pain, chest pain, fatigue, upset stomach and sleep problems.
Stress can also affect your mood causing you to be anxious, restless, lack motivation, irritable, overwhelmed or depressed. If you find yourself "just having a bad day", stress may be the reason why.
Stress can also affect your behavior in a negative way. You may overeat, have angry outbursts, abuse alcohol or socially withdraw. Again, all things that in the long-term will hurt you and the ones you love.
