A little stress is normal –everyone has it from time to time.
Stress means there is pressure on the person which is making them unhappy. When stress is reduced the person has more control over anger and feels more confidence and self-esteem.
Too much stress is not good at all and can have a profound effect on people. Often the effects manifest physically causing headaches, stomach problems and pains in other parts of the body such as shoulders and neck. Stress and anxiety can be measured by a rise in blood pressure, changes in metabolism and digestion, the ability to heal and suppression of the immune system. Stress puts a strain on all the systems of the body, subjecting it to disease that it might otherwise have fought off.
Anxiety and stress can also affect moods and behaviours: stress can be the cause of depression and oppositional behaviours.
