Stress

Pressure can be a great motivator, or it can wear you down. If you’re overwhelmed, we’re here to help.

Some stress can be good, but people have different ways of reacting to stress, so the feeling of being under pressure that might be motivating to one person can weigh heavily on another.

Pressure turns into stress when you feel unable to cope. While stress itself is not an illness, the consequences of long term stress can take a toll on your body and impact your job and your relationships.

Here our experts offer some tips -- from recognising the warning signs to dealing with the source of the problem.
