Too much stress, on the other hand, can result in a range of health problems including headaches, constipation, high blood pressure, and in some cases even heart disease. It can also cause feelings of distrust, anger, anxiety, and fear, which in turn can destroy relationships at home and work.
People often feel over-stressed as a result of some event, or trigger. This doesn’t necessarily have to be negative (such as the death of a loved one, divorce); it can be seemingly positive (a new partner, new job). Such feelings can be acute (as the result of a death or loss of a job) or chronic (coping with long-term unemployment or being in a bad relationship).
* Drinking alcohol (it changes your mood, not your problem).
* Denying the problem (the problem will remain).
* Taking drugs (including stimulants such as caffeine or pain medication).
* Overeating (binge-eating, poor diets).
* Smoking cigarettes.
