Stress is part of life. It can have a wide range of effects from increasing performance to causing ill health. Whether at work or home, sea or shore, life can throw all sorts of challenges at us, which can affect stress levels.
Are you stressed?
What makes us stressed tends to be very individual and we all respond differently to stress. Some of us get stressed over things that our friends just shrug off. This can raise our feelings of anxiety even more, thus reducing our abilities to cope with the pressure and making us even more stressed.
So what makes us stressed and how do we cope?

You and Your Partner and Family Pressures
Relationships can often be a source of stress. Our relationships change when we grow older and mature. This is especially true when children come along. You concentrate on your own situation and sometimes forget how it affects your partner. Soon you have a gulf in understanding, and ultimately this could impact on relationships. The Stress Management Society’s relationship experts can help you with this.
