Information and guidance on how to cope with stress

Stress can mean different things to different people. It is often defined as a mismatch between the demands placed on us and our ability to cope with these demands.

The way we cope with these demands will depend on the way we think, our personality and our previous life experiences. Stress is difficult to measure, but we all know what it feels like and how we cope in stressful situations. For some, it can threaten to take over their lives. While for others, it can be positive when it motivates us to get things done, however, it can negatively impact on our day to day lives.
