Understanding stress

What is stress?

Stress affects us all. It may be characterised as feeling down, irritable or unable to concentrate. Common causes of stress include:

  • Exams or job interviews
  • Work pressures
  • Receiving unhappy news
  • Living with teenagers
  • Planning an important event, such as a wedding, or moving house
  • You keep losing your temper or feeling angry about things
  • You can't slow down, or are unable to relax

It can lead to problems such as the inability to relax or slow down, losing your temper quickly and easily or feeling angry about things. If left unchecked it can lead to anxiety, sleeping problems, loss of appetite and even depression.

Stress Relief is an online, multimedia health information and self-management package, helping you to understand and manage stress.
