Stress is a natural part of life; at no point in a person’s life will there be an extended period of time wherein they are not subject to at least some form of stress. In fact, studies have shown that small amounts of manageable stress can actually bring some physical and mental health benefits.
Of course, that assumes that all stress is small and/or manageable. But the reality is that, while big and unmanageable stressful situations might be far and few in between, constantly battling stressors can take a huge toll on a person’s body. We’ve talked about managing your stress levels before, but too often, people think that stress is only dangerous when it’s big and loud. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
