Avoiding Stress

Have you ever felt sick to your stomach during a test? Have had days when you're bombarded with homework and have trouble sleeping? if so, then you know what it is like to feel stressed.

Stress is a normal physical response to life events that make you feel unbalanced in a specific way. The stress response is the body's way of protecting you. In general, stress is related to both external and internal factors such as your job, relationships, and internal includes your body's ability to respond and deal with the situation.
